As one of Asia-Pacific's largest motor and drive solutions providers, SEW-Eurodrive plans to make a big impression at September's Asia-Pacific International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) in Sydney, NSW, showcasing its extensive range of heavy-duty drive technologies. SEW will exhibit elements from its innovative range of gear units, geared motors, and complete drive assemblies-all specially designed for heavy-duty applications with high-transmitted loads, making them ideal for the needs of mining, mineral processing and quarrying processes.
According to Industrial Gears National Product Manager, 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 region's diverse range of mining applications. 'Our gear-unit offering 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 on the SEW-Eurodrive stand at AIMEX 2011 will be the company's Australian-assembled X-Series gear-units. 'This series boasts the finest torque-graduation 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. '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 15 sizes with torque ratings ranging from 58 to 475 kNm.
Along with their standalone gear unit range, SEW will also display their complete drive assemblies for heavy industry. Comprising of a gear unit, motor, drive base and guardings, all components are closely matched deliver maximum performance and efficiency. 'One thing our customers don't want is to have to go from supplier to supplier to order each component,' Tribe said. 'We engineer and assemble complete drive assemblies in order to provide ease-of-ordering and an efficient end system.'
Tribe stressed that one of the greatest benefits of the SEW-Eurodrive Industrial Gear range is availability. 'We assemble a large range of our Industrial Gears here in Australia,' he said. 'This, combined with the modular design of the units and our extensive local stock holdings, means that end users receive their orders within weeks, rather than waiting months for the units to be shipped in from overseas.'
'This is a huge advantage.'
