Our free to use online tool, is invaluable for any design engineer, allowing validation of conveyor design and materials chosen, The evaluation involves three steps: definition of conveying requirements, application requirements with product specifications, and system layout. Report results include required chain pull, motor speed, torque, shaft power and maximum line back pressure
Using built-in intelligence to evaluate applications for steel or plastic chain and modular belt conveyor, the System Plast Engineering Calculator (SPEC) software by Regal Power Transmission Solutions validates user specifications with a red (not suitable), yellow (close to limits) or green (ok) rating. The software also presents an alternative solution that may reduce energy or lubrication requirements with System Plast’s Nolu-S wear material, which SL Plastics exclusively stock and machine in the UK..
During the process, the software issues alerts for incompatible parameter inputs. It covers applications with carbon steel, stainless steel, several types of LF acetal for high-speed/reduced lubrication, and chain for high-speed dry running applications..
