Freewheels with backstops are used in machine and plant construction or conveyor technology to control and regulate the movement of drive elements. They ensure that driven shafts or comparable machine elements only move in a predefined direction and prevent unwanted backward movement. Freewheels with backstops from Movet are used in conveyor technology, in machining technology or in the control of machine movements. You too can now rely on high-quality Movet freewheels with backstops and benefit from the fastest delivery times and an excellent price-performance ratio.
How the machine elements work
A freewheel with backstop basically consists of a housing in which there is a rotating element equipped with gears or wheels at one or more ends. This element is connected via a shaft to a drive element, for example a motor or a gearbox. The backstop is located in the housing of the freewheel and is connected to the rotating element. It consists of a series of balls located in a groove and pressed against a spring force. When the rotating element rotates in the specified direction, the balls are pressed into the groove and the element is free to rotate. However, if the element is to rotate in the opposite direction, the balls are pressed away from the groove and thus block the movement.
Where are backstops used?
The backstop is designed to decouple a drive train from a rotary motion or to block the return motion of conveyor belts or lifts. As couplings that transmit torque in only one direction, backstops can be used for different applications. Common uses are as a brake that prevents a shaft from returning or as an overrunning clutch that decouples the power transmission from a defined speed and thus enables idling. Backstops are also used as indexing freewheels to enable a shaft to rotate in steps and thus implement variable speeds or a controlled material feed.
Freewheels with backstop for conveyor belts
Freewheels with backstops enable the safe and reliable operation of conveyor belts. By preventing unintended movements - for example when the drive is switched off or sudden malfunctions occur during operation - the risk of accidents is significantly minimised. The robust and durable basic design of the freewheels can reduce the need for maintenance and thus contribute to the efficient operation of conveyor belts. The Movet freewheels are suitable for all applications where maximum reliability and precision are required. Our backstops are often used for conveyor belts in the food industry or the chemical industry. We would be happy to advise you in detail on the wide range of applications that our backstops for conveyor belts can offer you. Why not give us a call right now!
