Locally assembled gear units

AT this year’s NMW, a new family of locally assembled gear units will be unveiled by SEW-Eurodrive.

AT this year’s NMW, a new family of locally assembled gear units will be unveiled by SEW-Eurodrive.

Featuring an extended bearing distance (EBD), 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 occur in mixer and agitator applications.

According to SEW, the EBD concept follows the company’s established philosophy of keeping things simple and modular: it consists purely of add-on components, such as stronger bearings, a larger diameter output shaft, and an extended bottom bearing housing.

Because of the potential contamination of the agitated medium by bearing lubricants, SEW can also incorporate a ‘drywell’ sealing system to prevent oil leakage at the output shaft in vertical mounting positions.

The new Australian-assembled EBD MC Compact series is available in various mounting arrangements and configuration options, and offered in five sizes, with torque ratings of 16 – 48kNm, suitable for motor powers up to 250kW.

The company will also launch the W37 and W47 right-angle gear unit ranges at NMW.

Featuring gear ratios as low as 3.2, the new W37 and W47 right-angle gearmotor ranges provide Australian manufacturers with high output speeds and new levels of drive-train efficiency.

The W37 and W47 ranges deliver torques from 70 – 110Nm and 100 – 180Nm respectively, making both new series ideal for a wide range of conveying applications.
