Drum Motors FAQ

Any lingering questions about AC motors? We’ve got answers.

Drum motors are used in industries where precise motion control is necessary. You may see them in industrial conveyor applications, such as packaging lines and printing presses, but they can also be used for a variety of other processes including mixing machines and escalators. 

The typical drum roller is an integrated motion component, meaning all its parts are contained within one unit. This includes the electric motor, gear reducer, and drum shaft. The drum itself is usually made of stainless steel or aluminum and comes in a variety of sizes to accommodate different conveyor belt widths, speeds, and torque requirements. The drum motor will be paired with an electronic drive, which allows the user to set speeds manually or electronically. Lubrication is necessary to ensure proper operation and the motor is typically protected with a guard or enclosure. 

The drum of a motor is the cylindrical part that houses the internal components and provides support for the conveyor belt. 

Drum motors excel in delivering heightened torque and superior power transmission, outperforming conventional belt drives. This enhanced performance facilitates improved acceleration and deceleration capabilities. Moreover, their enclosed design and absence of exposed components generally lead to reduced maintenance requirements compared to alternative motor systems.
