What is the ideal conveyor belt drive position?
A belt drive conveyor should ideally be pushing loads, rather than pulling as pulling can cause belt tracking issues.
We recommend that if a conveyor is supplied with an end drive, it should only be used uniquely in one direction. Correctly specifying drives and positions will drastically reduce any required maintenance and also will increase the performance of your conveyor.

Should I use a Drum Motor or Geared Motor?
Drum motor drive
Fitting the electric motor and gearbox internally within the end roller with the purpose of the drum motor drive providing a reliable clean line finish to the conveyor. The conveyor design becomes more important as they can be more difficult to maintain. Thus allowing them to be more energy efficient than conventional motors. Together with less external moving parts. With this in mind the reliability and quick service is second to none and often the drive of choice.
Geared motor drive
These are usually used alongside a fixed shaft drive pulley. Generally Electric geared motors power conveyors most often. With either a hollow bore for direct shaft mounting, or with an output shaft together with chain and sprockets. Alternatively timing belts would be used. Geared motors are normally easier to change for regular maintenance. Additionally they can be split into component form. For example gearbox and electric motor. Furthermore geared motors are widely available and cheaper.
