SEW gears up for AIMEX show


SEW-Eurodrive plans to make a big impression at the Asia-Pacific International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) in Sydney in September.

As one of Asia-Pacific’s largest motor and drive solutions providers, SEW-Eurodrive will showcase its extensive range of heavy-duty drive technologies.

The company 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.

The company’s industrial gear-unit range is an effective and versatile solution for a 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,” says SEW-Eurodrive Industrial Gears National Product Manager, Ian Tribe. “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 main feature at 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, says Mr Tribe. “This provides unrivalled gear-unit choice and flexibility for the mining industry. “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.

Also on show will be the X-Series’ smaller stablemate, the MC Compact Series.

Offered with the option of an extended bearing distance (EBD) and reinforced output, SEW-Eurodrive’s MC Compact Series is available in seven sizes, rated from 6 to 48kNm.

“The EBD version — normally assembled as a parallel vertical shaft design —provides freedom in system design as it requires remarkably little space,” says Mr Tribe.

“This is ideal for mixing, agitating, and thickener applications in the mining and minerals processing industry.”

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,” Mr Tribe says.

“We engineer and assemble complete drive assemblies in order to provide ease-of-ordering and an efficient end system.”

One of the greatest benefits of the SEW-Eurodrive Industrial Gear range is availability, says Mr Tribe.

“We assemble a large range of our Industrial Gears here in Australia,” he says.

“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.”
