Following the opening of its Melbourne-based Heavy Industrial Solutions division, SEW-Eurodrive plans to make a powerful impression at the AIMEX, showcasing its extensive range of locally assembled and serviced heavy-duty technologies.
The company will exhibit elements from its innovative range of gear units, geared motors and complete drive assemblies- all specifically designed for heavy duty applications with high transmitted loads, making them ideal for the needs of mining, mineral processing and quarrying processes.
According to SEW-Eurodrive national products manager for Industrial Gears, Ian Tribe, the modularity and high power-density of the company’s industrial gear unit range make them an effective and versatile solution for the diverse range of mining applications. “Our heavy industrial solutions range delivers extremely compact and versatile drive options for Australia’s natural resources and heavy engineering industries,” he said. “Additionally, their ability to withstand harsh operating environments make our motor and drive solutions suitable for all of Australia’s mineral/ore bulk-handling and processing operations.”
A particular point of interest at SEW-Eurodrive’s AIMEX stand will be their complete drive assemblies for heavy industry. Comprising of a gear unit, motor, drive base and guardings, all components are closely matched to deliver maximum performance and efficiency.
“We engineer and assemble complete drive assemblies locally, providing our customers with ease-of-ordering, quick turn-around times, local servicing and an efficient end system.”
Along with the drive packages, SEW will also display units from its standalone gear range, including the ground-breaking X series gear unit.
“This series boasts the finest torque gradation on the market, allowing users to closely match an X series gear unit to their application. This provides unrivalled gear unit choice and flexibility for the mining industry,” said Tribe. “When it comes to helical and bevel-helical gear units nearly any mounting position or shaft arrangement can be implemented. The X series is ideally suited to applications ranging from conveyor systems, to ball mills and agitators.”
The entire X series range is offered in a choice of 23 sizes with torque ratings ranging from 58 to 475 kNm.
It will be showing its motors and gears on stand 1311.
