BONFIGLIOLI will stock expanded ranges of its advanced Trasmital planetary gearboxes to help customers in Australia and New Zealand achieve cost-effective solutions in larger, high torque applications.
The expansion - which will also enhance delivery times for the versatile industrial drives - was announced by Bonfiglioli Transmission (Australia) Pty Ltd’s Managing Director, Malcolm Lewis, following visits by top-level executives of the international Bonfiglioli Group.
"Sales of the Trasmital product range have grown substantially in recent years and we are demonstrating our commitment to customers by holding more larger sizes in stock,” said Mr Lewis.
“We are also expanding our engineering facilities to permit precise tailoring of drives to individual customer needs and to manufacture custom-built combinations of Trasmital and other Bonfiglioli drives to combine the best qualities of each.”
The compact and 100% modular Trasmital 300 series of multipurpose planetary gearboxes is available with output torque up to 540,000Nm and transmissible power up to 450kW.
Trasmital 300 series gearboxes are especially suitable for applications requiring high reduction ratios, high transmissible torque and high radial loads on output shafts.
Applications include conveyor feeders, pumps, mixers, stirrers and settling pond thickeners. Mobile applications include cranes, drilling rigs and drives for hoists and luff and slew equipment.
Heavy duty industrial uses include steel mills, mining equipment, quarry equipment, woodworking, pulp and paper, chemical industries, rubber and plastic processing, food processing, materials handling and transport, and water treatment.
Recent uses in Australia have ranged from mining thickeners, manufacturing and waste water through to a drive system that rolls forward 500t sections of seating at Stadium Australia in Sydney to give patrons a better view of events.
