Sky’s the limit with SEW Eurodrive

Leading drives solutions group, SEW-Eurodrive, recently treated its Queensland customers to a memorable cocktail evening at the Da Vinci Exhibition in Brisbane – culminating in a ride on the landmark Wheel of Brisbane ferris wheel.

SEW-Eurodrive is the presenting sponsor of The Da Vinci Machines: An Exhibition of Genius as it tours the country, and the company has also provided the gear units for the rotation of the Wheel of Brisbane.

The Wheel of Brisbane – opened to the public in August last year – is powered by four 30kW dc motors, each featuring an R137 inline helical gear unit from SEW-Eurodrive.

The wheel can accommodate 336 people in 42 carriages, and – standing 60m above Brisbane’s South Bank precinct – provides breathtaking views across the city and the Brisbane River.
