SEW-EURODRIVE  will be launching a new addition to its industrial gear units range at September’s Asia-Pacific International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) in Sydney.  

The Mining Drive is a new range of large gear units in a purpose-built thermal housing, designed to make a significant reduction to energy usage in heavy industry by lowering thermal losses.  

According to SEW-EURODRIVE Industrial Gears National Product Manager, Ian Tribe, the Mining Drive is suitable for heavy-duty applications with high-transmitted loads in mining, mineral processing and quarrying processes.  

Heavy industry as a rule requires machinery with more torque and more power, resulting in a higher energy requirement to run their facilities. By providing a significant increase in thermal ratings, the new industrial gear units will drive down heat losses and reduce overall energy consumption.  

Mining Drive incorporates several internal energy-reducing features selected specifically for each application depending on the operating conditions, which result in less heat being dissipated by the housing.  

Key features of the Mining Drive gear units: 

  • Based on SEW-EURODRIVE’s groundbreaking X Series industrial gear units with identical internal gears
  • Purpose-designed cast-iron housing designed with larger dimensions and extensive ribbing on both sides and underneath to dissipate the heat more effectively
  • Axial fan and various efficient internal devices help increase thermal ratings
  • More energy-efficient drive and lower running temperature lead to longer oil life and safer surfaces to touch
  • Available as a standalone gear unit or as part of a complete drive assembly including gear unit, motor, drive base and guardings

SEW-EURODRIVE’s comprehensive range of heavy duty motor and drive solutions including the new Mining Drive gear units will be on display at AIMEX, Stand 1311, Sydney Showgrounds, 6-9 September 2011.
