A conveyor gearbox is a crucial component of any conveyor system. It's essentially the heart of the system, responsible for transmitting power from the motor to the belt or chain, ultimately making the conveyor move.


Here's a breakdown of its function

Speed Reduction
Conveyor motors typically run at high speeds, unsuitable for the direct operation of the belt or chain. The gearbox acts as a speed reducer, bringing down the motor's speed to a more manageable level for the conveyor's operation. This is achieved through a series of gears with different sizes and ratios, effectively transforming high-speed, low-torque input into low-speed, high-torque output.
Torque Multiplication
In some cases, the gearbox can also amplify the motor's torque, providing the extra pulling power needed for heavy-duty applications or inclined conveyors. This is particularly helpful when moving large or bulky materials.

Direction Control
Some gearboxes allow for changing the direction of the conveyor belt's rotation. This can be achieved through clutches or gear arrangements that reverse the power transmission.
selecting the right gearbox

Selecting the right gearbox depends on several factors

  • Conveyor type and capacity: Different conveyor types (belt, chain, roller) and capacities require different gearboxes with varying torque and speed capabilities.
  • Motor specifications: The gearbox must be compatible with the motor's power output and speed.
  • Application requirements: Consider factors like operating environment, duty cycle, and material being conveyed.

By understanding the functions and types of conveyor gearboxes, you can make informed decisions when choosing the right one for your specific needs. This ensures optimal performance, efficiency, and longevity of your conveyor system.


Types of Conveyor Gearboxes:

There are various types of conveyor gearboxes, each suited for specific applications and conveyor designs. Some of the most common ones include:
  • Parallel Shaft Gearboxes: These have the input and output shafts aligned in parallel, making them suitable for simple, straight-line conveyor systems.

  • Right-Angle Gearboxes: These have the input and output shafts at right angles to each other, often used for cornering sections or Z-shaped conveyors.

  • Bevel Gearboxes: These use bevel gears to change the direction of power by 90 degrees, commonly found in incline or decline conveyors.

  • Worm Gearboxes: These provide high torque amplification and are ideal for slow-moving, high-load applications.
