Milwaukee, Wisconsin, February 16th, 2017 - Hilmot is excited to be announcing the integration of a revolutionary, never before seen gearless MDR designed by Volta24. The V24 MDR is a motorized drive roller, bringing more torque and speed while eliminating the need for multiple gear ratios. The V24 is an oil-free, gear-less MDR available in a black E-Coat finish and stainless steel for washdown applications. The V24 features a solid single through-shaft construction which keeps the design simple. In addition, the gearless design minimizes mechanical wear and allows for use in extreme temperatures. Its compact design allows the unit to mount easily under conveyor eliminating the possibility of direct impact. There is no need for a surplus of inventory, the V24 is versatile and can be used with multiple frame widths and gear ratios. The 24-volt powered MDR operates at 35 fpm and up. The universal design incorporates both O-band and Poly-V drive options. Larger bearings and a non-cantilever design to eliminate side load bearing failures. V24 is also compatible with a variety of ASI controllers available globally.
Hilmot is a leading US conveyor manufacture and is the first to integrate the V24 MDR into their conveyor systems. Hilmot will have the new revolutionary MDR in operation running their conveyor system at the MODEX 2018 trade show in Atlanta at booth #B4983 April 9th-12th.
