Sew-Eurodrive is supplying three complete power packs at a major diamond mine in Lesotho, for use on the tailings side of the operation. This follows the earlier successful supply of 20 power packs for the same project.
Each power pack consists of an X-Series industrial gearbox with high- and low-speed couplings, motor and base plate. These preassembled units represent significant cost-savings and reduced downtime, as the power pack is supplied with the input coupling shaft and the alignment already carried out. Combined with the shaft alignment, in general there are only two interfaces that need to be fitted.
The units provide an ideal solution for conveyor belt drives, with a torque range from 6.8 kNm to 475 kNm. They also feature a large number of accessories to allow for maximum flexibility, and a wide range of gear ratios for helical and bevel-helical gear units.
A reversible gear unit housing facilitates variable installation. The robust housing, low-noise gearing and cooling system boost safety and ease of maintenance.
