Australian power and control solutions specialist Bonfiglioli Transmissions has launched new heavy duty (HD), fully coupled drive combinations.

Particularly suited to boom conveyors and other materials handling applications, the power packs incorporate new generation HDO 130 helical drives fixed to a base plate.

They are fully coupled and laser aligned with their fluid couplings, disc brakes, pony drives and rigid output couplings.

The latest power packs, with locally designed and fabricated baseplate assembly – are designed optimum ease of installation, rugged service and low maintenance in materials handling and process applications.

The 51,000 Nm capacity drives incorporate the following features:

  • Delayed filling fluid coupling to provide about 150 per cent of motor full load torque on start up, which reduces drive train wear
  • HS disc brake as a safety feature to ensure the conveyor does not backdrive in the case of a failure
  • LS rigid output couple, which allows trouble-free disassembly at maintenance intervals through its bolted connection design.

In drive capacities from 1722 kW and 150,000 Nm torque – HD power packs lend themselves to conveyor drive and materials handling applications across a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, mineral processing, primary processing, resources, energy and water and waste water.

The modular design HD series is produced on Bonfiglioli’s Australasian production and testing line that cuts delivery times and enhances customisation capabilities.

Malcolm Lewis says local production, combined with in-depth local engineering expertise enables custom engineered drives for specific solutions.

"This includes highly versatile drives such as the power packs, which are suitable for both static industrial equipment and mobile equipment," Lewis says.

"Power packs are part of Bonfiglioli’s ongoing process of product diversification, process automation, and quality focus that has enabled Bonfiglioli to play a leadership role in the industry as a major supplier of helical, planetary, worm and frequency inverter drives."
