Magnetic speed controller easily handles gravity

08 March 2016

The MSC 50 is a technical and economical solution, offered by Interroll, in response to demand for more efficient and cost-effective material handling systems.

Interroll will unveil its new magnetic speed controller at LogiMAT 2016 in Stuttgart, Germany. 

The MSC 50 is easy-to-install, maintenance-free, and has a host of useful features that, together, deliver process reliability and ROI.

The MSC 50 is a cost-effective solution for controlling the speed of boxes and plastic trays traveling on gravity roller conveyors and spirals or the end sections of sorters. Suitable for handling goods weighing between 0.5 and 35kg (1lb-77lbs), the system ensures lightweight packages move smoothly, while limiting the speed of heavy goods traveling along the conveyor. These features make MSC 50 a good choice for warehousing, e-commerce, postal service, food and pharmaceutical operations, as well as for customers that use flow racks for heavy containers.

Gravity roller conveyors are widely used and are often installed to handle the final stage of goods moving through sorting systems. To eliminate extra costs resulting from, for example, goods damaged because they are moving too quickly on those gravity conveyors, or extra travel time to pick up stuck goods, these end sections must work perfectly.

However, most of today's gravity conveyors have limited functionality. They are sold without components to control conveyor speed, mainly to minimise costs. Due to an increasing diversity in the size and weight of goods running on gravity conveyors, Interroll saw a need to develop a speed controller. 

"Our MSC 50 is a solution with an optimum price-to-performance ratio," says Ralf Garlichs, Executive Vice President Products & Technology at Interroll. The MSC 50 features an eddy current brake, which makes it maintenance-free. Double shielding completely prevents magnetic emissions.

Due to its bidirectional braking function, it cannot be mounted incorrectly. In addition, the MSC 50 speed controller is easy to install and is a perfect fit for retrofitting existing gravity conveyor installations. Different MSC 50 lengths and quantities can be used to scale the design and provide the ideal solution for your application. 

The MSC 50 is designed for a maximum load of 500N and a maximum infeed speed of 2.5m/sec. Maximum input is up to 3,000units per hour. It has a specified ambient temperature range of 5 to 40°C and is available in roller lengths of 210 to 1400mm.
