Nexen MDB-625 on Small Baggage Conveyor

Problem:

A major airline needed to improve the efficiency of a smaller conveyor which, in conjunction with larger lines, is used to transfer baggage. They were experiencing too long of delays each time the conveyor stopped and had to start up again. Not only was this inefficient, but it was strenuous on the motor.

Solution:

A larger existing electric unit was replaced with a Nexen MDB-625 clutch/brake module. With this new clutch/brake system, controlled with of a foot switch, the conveyor can be jogged and still run at a fast enough pace. This also puts less stress on the motor, increasing its lifetime.
