The company said users can now go to Dodge Passport to design conveyor pulley assemblies and belt conveyors. They can now also quickly and easily order mechanical products for belt conveying and bulk-material handling applications across mining, cement, aggregates and grains.
The new design program includes application-specific design parameters, including capacity, material characteristics and conveyor geometry for the accurate sizing of gear reducers, motors, conveyor pulleys, shafting and mounted bearings.
A user can also view a comprehensive summary from a design that includes component details and supporting technical performance data. It will also index selections for future reference.
"From Torque-Arm reducer drive packages to conveyor pulley assemblies complete with mounted bearings, Dodge has a leading product offering for belt conveying applications," electronic tools product manager Matthew Wolford said.
The new conveyor pulley assembly designer element of Passport allows users to select, quote and order conveyor pulley assemblies complete with shafting and mounted bearings. Pricing and availability is in real time, and an add-to-order feature allows for the conversion of selections into orders via its PT Place e-commerce platform.
ABB said that it is planning for future Passport capabilities that will incorporate additional Dodge mechanical power transmission products.
