ITOH Denki USA, Inc.
Itoh Denki developed the motor driven roller (MDR) for conveyor systems in 1975. These first revolutionary products were AC powered and provided our customers with an alternative to conveyors traditionally powered by large electric motors. In 1988, we developed the first 24V brushless DC powered roller. These rollers provide our customers with a more powerful option to convey their products. The Power Moller 24 became a run-on-demand powerhouse that was safer, quieter and even more energy efficient. The torque output allows MDRs to be considered for heavier applications; previously only possible with larger electric motors. In 1996, Itoh Denki USA Inc., was founded to meet the growing demands of the MDR market in the United States. Corporate offices and a manufacturing facility were established, helping spread the use of our motorized rollers throughout the country. It is our goal to continue to pioneer the MDR market with quality existing products as well as with new innovations.
