Bauer launches ‘Industrial Gearboxes’ to deliver up to 1.5million Nm of torque
To support its existing product range, and to help make the marketplace more aware of the complete package solutions it offers for larger gearboxes, Bauer has launched a new Industrial Drive Applications service, which offers a huge range of torque figures and reduction ratios from a variety of gearing arrangements. The new service includes high-torque helical, bevel-helical and planetary gearboxes which are designed and specified in-house to deliver up to 1.5million Nm of torque.
Bauer is well known for manufacturing a wide range of reliable and efficient gear motors for industrial applications, but until now the perception of the business is generally as a supplier of smaller units. The new area Industrial Drive Applications adds another string to Bauer’s bow, allowing it to offer customers total package solutions across entire sites in many different industries. The area offers a range of gearbox solutions with varying torque depending on requirements including Helical and Bevel Helical gearboxes which deliver up to 300,000Nm of torque and planetary gearboxes which offer up to 1,500,000Nm of torque.
André Bubolz, Director of Industrial Drive Applications for Bauer, comments: “Thanks to our constantly expanding standard range, and our Special Serial Demand service which offers totally bespoke designed gearboxes supplied as one-offs or in full volume production, we are able to offer a gear motor solutions for almost any application in virtually any industry. The launch of Industrial Drive Applications means we are able to extend this expertise to offer total power transmission packages providing efficiency, reliability and convenience of supply to our customers.”
Bauer is committed to working with customers as a solutions provider across many industries including; metals and mining, food and beverage; cranes, hoists and lifts; bulk material handling; water treatment; textiles; and the chemical industry. Offering a complete package simplifies the specification process for the customer, as they only need to speak to a single contact, while reducing costs and removing the headache of specifying components which will integrate with each other.
To further augment the power transmission partnership role, Bauer Gear Motor is also able to draw on the huge resources of the wider Altra Group –providing access to worldwide support and delivery of the world’s largest range of industrial clutches, brakes and couplings. The combination of expertise and product range allows Bauer to provide a solution that will not only drive, but protect and optimise the entire mechanical power transmission line. Again, the one-stop-shop approach not only delivers customer convenience, but a more efficient way of doing business. The official launch of the Bauer Gear Motor Industrial Drive Applications will be at the Hannover Messe from 8th to 13th April 2013 in Hannover Germany at the Altra Industrial Motion stand in Hall 25, Stand C03.
