SEW-EURODRIVE plans to launch a new range of industrial gears at the upcoming Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) in September.

Combining the best of two industrial gear designs, SEW-EURODRIVE’s new P-X Series offers the advantages of planetary gear units as well as the X Series bevel helical gear units. The integrated intermediate flange enables the P-X range to offer compact drives with lower weight and greater stiffness for a torque range of 100-500 kNm.

The P-X drives can be used in applications that demand high performance and torque in a compact package; for example, as drives for bucket-wheel reclaimers, apron feeders, crushers or compact belt drives.

Key features of the P-X bevel-helical planetary gear units include choice of seven sizes covering a torque range of 100-500 kNm; gear ratio range extending from i = 160 to i = 550; shared oil chamber and thermally optimised housing supporting high thermal ratings; usage in low temperature applications below -25°C possible in conjunction with heaters and heating mats; inspection covers fitted on both sides of the symmetrical invertible housing; and motor adapters compatible up to motor size IEC 355 with 500 kW.

SEW-EURODRIVE offers the option of various motor adapters with fans and free input shafts among other features on the input end. At the output end, standardised output shafts are available as hollow shafts with shrink disks, solid shafts with keys or as smooth models. Installation options include foot- or flange-mounting or shaft mounting with a torque arm.

Key advantages of SEW-EURODRIVE’s P-X Series bevel-helical planetary gear units include high gear unit-specific thermal ratings resulting in savings in cooling systems; standardised products allowing short delivery times; proven solution based on many drives in the field; and complete drive systems with motor scoop or motor adapter saving weight and costs compared to swing-base solutions.

The new P-X Series will be launched by SEW-EURODRIVE on Stand 1311 at AIMEX, Sydney Showgrounds, 1-4 September, 2015.
