In today's fast-paced industrial landscape, the role of conveyors has become more crucial than ever. These systems efficiently move materials, products, and goods, for numerous industries, from labeling and packaging to warehousing and distribution. While many types of motors can be used in conveyors, we would like to focus on a few reasons why brushless motors should be considered for most conveyor applications.

Peristaltic pumps are among the most common motor applications in medical, pharmaceutical, biotech, and diagnostic equipment. It's one of the most popular applications for our motors, and we asked our customers why.
Motors exhibit noise. The important thing to know is how you distinguish normal noise from abnormal noise, and how to troubleshoot.
Agricultural automation has been a trending topic lately due to rising food inflation. This case study tells the story of an agricultural producer who has successfully improved production efficiency by building in-house automation.
Increasing power efficiency and minimizing the carbon footprint is the trend these days. Do you know how to calculate CO2 emissions from your electric motors, and which types of motors emit less?
Modular automation is the next phase of factory automation where a production line is separated into modules and can be quickly reconfigured for different purposes. We're ready for this. Are you?
The BLV Series R Type brushless DC motor and compact driver not only reduces the size and weight of the original BLV Series driver but offer an upgrade to the motor as well. This blog post uses videos to explain the features offered by the BLV Series R Type.
Many motor manufacturers offer a motor sizing tool to help with product selection, but if you don't know how to use it, you may still end up paying for it in the long run.
This is a continuation of the blog post, "Technologies Used with Brushless Motors". In this section, we explain the efficiency aspect of brushless motors and compare them to AC motors.
Which type of electric motor do you size for your conveyor, XYZ table, or robot? Before you select one, you must understand the characteristics of each type of motor in the market.
