SEW-Eurodrive in top gear at AIMEX 2013

Following the opening of its Melbourne-based Heavy Industrial Solutions division, SEW-Eurodrive plans to make a powerful impression at the Asia-Pacific International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) in Sydney this month.
 
SEW-Eurodrive will showcase its extensive range of locally assembled and serviced heavy-duty technologies. 
 
This includes elements from its innovative range of gear units, geared motors and complete drive assemblies – all specifically designed for heavy duty applications with high transmitted loads.
 
This makes them ideal for the needs of mining, mineral processing and quarrying processes.
 
According to SEW-Eurodrive National Products Manager for Industrial Gears, 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 diverse range of mining applications. 
 
“Our heavy industrial solutions range 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 at SEW-Eurodrive’s AIMEX stand will be their complete drive assemblies for heavy industry. 
 
Comprising of a gear unit, motor, drive base and guardings, all components are closely matched to 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 locally, providing our customers with ease-of-ordering, quick turn-around times, local servicing and an efficient end system.”
 
Along with the complete drive packages, SEW will also display units from its standalone gear range, including the ground-breaking X series gear unit. “This series boasts the finest torque gradation 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. “When it comes to helical and bevel-helical gear units nearly any mounting position or shaft arrangement can be implemented. 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 23 sizes with torque ratings ranging from 58 to 475 kNm.
 
One of the greatest benefits of the SEW-Eurodrive’s Heavy Industrial Solutions range is availability. 
 
“We assemble and service our heavy industrial solutions range here in Australia,” says Tribe. “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.”
 
SEW-Eurodrive’s comprehensive range of Heavy Industrial Solutions will be on show at Stand 1311 at AIMEX, Sydney Showgrounds, August, 20-23.
