December 2017, News
Fenner, a leading brand in BMG’s extensive range of power transmission components, encompasses shaft mounted speed reducers (SMSRs), transmission belts, pulleys and accessories, as well as shaft fixings, chain drives and couplings.
“BMG takes great pride in supplying these products, which are enhanced by Fenner’s global pledge to quality assurance, dating back over 150 years,” says Mark Barbour, business unit manager, electromechanical, BMG. “Key components in the Fenner range are the highly flexible SMSRs that provide an efficient method of reducing speed in diverse applications, including conveyors, mixers and mills, as well as cranes and hoists.
“Fenner SMSRs, which have a smaller inventory of parts than conventional models, ensure a good power/weight ratio within compact dimensions. Benefits over other drive systems include simplicity, minimal spares requirements, ease at which you can change the speed, ideal backstop position and the use of standard motors.”
The latest Fenner SMSR series – the PowerPlus range – offers a 50% increase in power to weight ratio over previous versions and is capable of handling powers between 0,25 kW and 250 kW. These units have a more compact design for easier handling and a wider range of bore sizes – from 20 mm to 190 mm.
A torque arm anchors the reducer and provides quick, easy adjustment of the wedge belt by means of its turnbuckle. This motor mounting assembly accommodates different motor frame sizes and provides full adjustment of drives centres, ensuring a standard belt can be fitted and easily re-tensioned as required. A motor mount that automatically adjusts the belt tension is also available.
BMG is uniquely positioned to meet the exact gear drive and motor requirements of contractors, designers and the end-user in diverse industries. A team of highly skilled technicians offers a technical advisory and support solution service and a substantial stockholding ensures a quick and efficient delivery throughout the southern African region.
