Motorized Driver Roller (MDR)

MDRProducts we OfferMotorized Driver Roller

Motor Driven Roller Conveyor (MDR) is the industry standard for a multitude of reasons, and Facility Functions has been there since its introduction to the conveyor world. We have grown alongside the product and have come to intimately understand how to best implement MDR technology. MDR has replaced Chain Driven Live Roller (CDLR) for most applications, so let’s touch on why: The fleet of smaller motors uses less energy than an equivalent large motor required to move the same amount of product using CDLR, simple to maintain, safe, runs only when needed, and is very quiet.

A product; smart, simple, and safe. What a great concept!

The reduced energy costs alone makes MDR the economic choice, however MDR systems can also be installed, tested, and ran in half the amount of time of a conventional chain and sprocket system. 

For those conventional sites needing repair, the retro kits can be applied without any downtime or interference. The conventional drive components can either be left attached or removed at a later date.  Let our facility staff of engineers, controls personnel, and installers show you the transitional benefits of a product that is smart, simple, and safe.
