SEW Eurodrive will demonstrate their total solutions approach to the materials handling industry at BULKEX 2009. SEW-Eurodrive will exhibit elements from their expansive and innovative electronic, electro-mechanical and mechanical solution-set, which make up the complete end-to-end drive solution.
According to Ian Tribe, National Product Manager, Industrial Gear Units, SEW-Eurodrive, Australian industry is increasingly seeking out ‘one-stop’ drive solution providers. The demand for world-class drive solutions from a single supplier, from the gearbox through to the drive electronics, has never been greater.
At the BULKEX 2009, SEW-Eurodrive will showcase a new family of locally assembled extended bearing distance (EBD) gear-units. The EBD MC Compact series of helical and helical-bevel gear units has been engineered to absorb the high bending moments and axial forces that can occur in mixer and agitator applications. Available in various mounting arrangements and configuration options, the Australian-assembled EBD MC compact series is offered in five sizes, with torque ratings of 16kNm to 48kNm, suitable for motor powers up to 250kW.
SEW-Eurodrive X-Series of industrial gear-units will also be on show at BULKEX 2009. Comprising 15 models each with a different torque-rating, the SEW-Eurodrive X-Series boasts the finest torque-graduation, allowing users to match an X-Series gear-unit to their application. The big brother of SEW-Eurodrive MC Compact industrial gear-units, the X-Series features helical and helical-bevel gear technologies, which deliver torques from 58,000Nm to 475,000Nm. The X-Series is offered in a range of mounting arrangements, configuration options and user-specific requirements, making it suitable for a wide range of materials handling applications.
Visitors to BULKEX 2009 will also be able to get a close-up look at the latest addition to SEW-Eurodrive DR series of energy-efficient induction motors. The DR motor series includes two variants rated to varying efficiency levels ‘minimum-efficiency’ (DRE) (spanning 0.75kW to 45kW) and ‘premium efficiency’ (DRP) (spanning 0.75kW to 37kW) enabling users to address differing motor efficiency requirements. Featuring optimised design and including advanced cast-copper rotor technology variants, the DR series provides the Australian materials handling industry with new levels of motor efficiency.
Other solutions on display at the exhibition include a selection of SEW-Eurodrive application inverters, decentralised drive systems and other drive electronics. Like all SEW-Eurodrive technologies, they provide the flexibility, scalability and powerful connectivity required to support Australia’s advanced materials handling applications. To explore SEW-Eurodrive end-to-end drive and energy-efficient solutions elements, customers can visit SEW-Eurodrive at BULKEX 2009, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Southbank.
