Bauer BK Series Geared Motors for Pizza Packaging Line Conveyors

Published

on

One of the world’s largest food and beverage companies needed an efficient, reliable drive for a pizza packaging line in one of its plants in Italy. The drives power shrink wrapping machine infeed conveyors. The facility had been using traditional stainless steel motors rated at 70-80 Hz. However, to boost production, the speed was increased to 80-90 Hz which created excessive heat causing the drives to fail.

After a careful analysis of the conveyor application demands, Bauer engineers recommended a BK Series right angle bevel geared motor for improved efficiency compared to worm gear solutions. The Model BK06 supplied features a PMSM (permanent magnet synchronous motor) that reduces heat losses from the rotor by 100% and total losses by approximately 25%, while increasing total efficiency by 10% or more. This improved performance translates into lower total cost of ownership, a reduction in CO2 emissions, and ongoing savings that buffer against future increases in energy costs.

Because PMSM motors provide efficiency at a wide range of speeds, it allowed the conveyor line speed to be adjusted up to 80 RPM when needed to meet production schedule targets.

Compact Bauer BK Series models are completely enclosed and sealed against dust and moisture. A hardened wear sleeve and spray ring ensure leak-free performance.

STOBER presents its new product configurator

Published

on

With the new STOBER Configurator, users have an online tool to intuitively build the right drive solution from STOBER’s extensive product range with just a few clicks. Technical information and drawings are readily available after quickly and easily configuring a product. Users can even request a quote with a simple click. The configurator is one of many projects in STOBER’s commitment to supporting customers with additional digital services.

With the new STOBER Configurator, engineers and designers will save time in product selection and designing. Before the configurator, they searched through catalogs to find the right solution, requested information in multiple places, and used type code values. Now, everything is a simple click away.

Quickly and easily search for gear units, geared motors, motors, and electronics! Intuitive navigation and modern design make using the tool fast and easy. Numerous filters and comparison options are available. Results can be sorted based on price, performance, or size. Users can then configure the product to meet their application requirements. For example, with geared motors, users can pick their shaft and housing style along with mounting position.

Designers can access technical data sheets, dimensional drawings, and 3D models. They can also request a quote. All configurations can easily be shared or saved.

Bonfiglioli launches ECGenius, its Continuously Variable Transmission

Published

on

High-power, efficient and cost-effective, ECGenius is dedicated to telehandler applications.

ECGenius is a high-power, efficient and cost-effective continuously variable transmission dedicated to telehandler vehicles, and also suitable for other equipment. The Patented Mechanical Variator (Europe, United States and Asia) at the core of this product is the result of over 15 years of development at CVTCORP, Bonfiglioli’s Canadian partner. It enables OEMs to downsize engine while providing unmatched operational ease, and overall vehicle performance improvements in the 20-30% range. Torque and power are transferred seamlessly through 6 actuated rollers, thanks to the electrohydrodynamic lubrication, which prevents metal to metal contact while ensuring the correct torque transfer without slippage.

Thanks to its special technical features, ECGenius is the highest reliable and efficient Continuously Variable Transmission on the market.

The robust design is conceived to handle typical application shock loads, while the precise and stable control system is not at all affected by load variations, all tested by experience with over 500,000 cumulative test hours completed in the lab and by OEMs in real life applications.

The Transmission Control Unit algorithm use, engine and transmission data ensure maximum vehicle efficiency and overall system optimization. The software is easy to integrate and to include special operating modes for specific applications resulting in maximum productivity. The open architecture and customizable software allows maximum flexibility, to adjust to different geographic requirements.

The traction drive mechanical CVT architecture offers smooth, seamless shifting with no steps through an infinite number of effective forward speeds. And the innovative transmission design with advanced control and clutch reduces the number of mechanical components, therefore reducing mechanical and viscous losses. Seamless shifting allows the engine to operate at its optimal operating point translating into fuel efficiency.

ECGenius is the result of an exclusive licensing agreement between Bonfiglioli and CVTCORP, a world leader in the design and development of revolutionary, high-efficiency mechanical Continuously Variable Transmissions (mCVT) for the off-highway market. Included in this licensing agreement are the production transfer of the ECGenius150, along with the CVTCORP current sales pipeline with commercialization volume anticipated at the beginning of 2020.

NORD smooth motors ideal for the food and beverage industry

Published

on

From its own production, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers ventilated and unventilated motors with smooth surfaces for areas with high hygiene standards. Their washdown-optimised cast aluminium housings make them easy to clean.

The smooth surface motors from NORD are available in sizes BG 80, 90 and 100. They are based on the NORD modular construction system and therefore offer maximum flexibility for versatile application areas. The motors are provided with protection class IP66 and they are compatible with every gear unit type. In addition, the use of energy-saving three-phase motors ensures high efficiency with low operating costs.

Optionally, the smooth surface motors are available with the nsd tupH surface treatment, which is a special process making the aluminium surface corrosion-resistant and particularly hard, similar to the qualities of stainless steel. In contrast to protective painting or coating, nothing can detach or flake off.
