The robust helical and bevel-helical gear units that are part of the X-Series of industrial gear units cover a torque range of 6.8 to 475 kNm. The intelligent, comprehensive gear unit concept features finely graduated size, variable installation and a wide variety of modular options that are sure to impress users.
SEW-EURODRIVE produces the robust X-Series industrial gear units on an independent platform. With their finely graduated size, they cover a torque range of up to 475 kNm. Recently, the drive automation specialist rounded off the lower power range of this series and is now also offering the proven gear units for the torque range of 6.8 to 45 kNm. The extremely large gear ratio of 6.3 to 450 is evidence that with its X-Series, SEW-EURODRIVE has met all the requirements for a complete, comprehensive range of industrial gear units.
When it comes to helical and bevel-helical gear units, nearly any mounting position or shaft arrangement can be implemented. The X-Series' finely graduated size and high power density results in savings in terms of both weight and cost. The large amount of pre-defined accessory equipment creates flexibility in terms of adjusting the unit to each respective application. This includes a wide range of modular options such as motor adapters and mounting flanges, backstops and cooling systems as well as sealing systems for the most varied environmental conditions.
One main area of application for SEW industrial gear units is conveyor systems in a wide variety of industries. In this context, the gear units perform reliable service in driving conveyor belts and bucket elevators for the horizontal and vertical transport of bulk material and packages. They also run the travel and hoist drive on cranes or serve as a drive with reinforced bearings for mixers and agitators. Furthermore, X-Series industrial gear units will also be used in industries such as the chemicals, food and environmental industries, as well as the wood, paper, plastic and steel industries.
In addition, SEW-EURODRIVE compiles drive packages for the customer that include such components as industrial gear units, a motor, couplings, brakes and steel frames. In this case, customers benefit from the fact that they can obtain the complete, fully assembled drive package from a single source.
