Many horizontal materials handling applications require a higher torque during
the startup phase to overcome static friction, to loosen dirt and sticky residue.
This has to be taken into account when planning, which is why the conventional
drive systems only utilizes 50% to 60% of drive power in steady-state, continuous
MOVIGEAR®, however provides a starting torque that is 3 to 4 times
higher than the continuous opertating torque, so the MOVIGEAR® can
be sized without consideration for starting overload requirements. This means that the
power required to drive the system can be significantly reduced. Other electrical
elements, such as fuses and switches, can also be sized smaller.
