Industrial gear solutions

October 2012 Motion Control & Drives

SEW-Eurodrive produces its 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 and the German drive automation specialist recently rounded off the lower power range of this series and now also offers the proven gear units for the torque range of 6,8 to 475 kNm. The extremely large gear ratio of 6,3 to 450 is evidence that with its X Series, the company has 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 adaptors 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 reliably as drives for 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.

SEW-Eurodrive creates drive packages for its customers that include components such as industrial gear units, motors, couplings, brakes and steel frames. The complete, fully assembled drive package is available from a single source.
