More than you think...

We’re probably best known for our worm range of products the VF and W range, of which we make over 1 million units per year, so these are still very important to us.

However an increasing large presence in our business is our “heavy duty” (HD) range of products: HDO (right angle), HDP (parallel) and planetary 300 series. We now have one of the broadest product ranges available. We can discuss many different and various applications with customers.

We are getting involved with larger torque applications (the planetary range is presently over 1.1 million Nm output torque). The HD product has the ability and flexibility to combine with our smaller gearboxes, to achieve larger gear ratios, or ancillary drives.

Recently our colleagues in Australia replaced a broken gearbox with a HD combination drive. The Unimin cement and lime works near Kandos in NSW required a replacement parallel helical gearbox delivering more than 60,000 Nm torque after their kiln drive suffered a gear failure.

The solution supplied was an A803 helical bevel with a double extension output shaft, which also accommodates a pony emergency drive. Fitted with a close coupled motor, the unit drives into a Bonfiglioli HDP 140 three-stage parallel helical gearbox with a 25.1 ratio. The complete solution was supplied on its own base plate, allowing for ease of coupling to the kiln, and the pony drive.

The gearbox was assembled swiftly in Sydney from parts in stock, utilizing Bonfiglioli’s complete assembly and testing line dedicated to HDP parallel shaft and HDO bevel helical industrial drives.

The HD range of industrial drives was purpose built with this in mind, allowing for assembly to customer requirements by Bonfiglioli around the globe. We are assembling the HD range in Australia, Brazil, USA, South Africa, and here in Europe, so we are able to supply and support product supplied to local markets throughout the globe.

The HD series is engineered for:

Outstanding torque density
High casing strength
Latest bearing technology for long life
Quiet, trouble-free operation

The HD and planetary drives are used for a broad range of high power applications such as conveyors, cranes, mixers, fans, pumps to name a few and are able to be engineered to develop high torque combination drives.
