New plant for large gear units opened

SEW-EURODRIVE has opened a new plant for large gear units at its site in Bruchsal/Germany (Fig.). Accordingly the SEW-EURODRIVE now has a worldwide production network for large gear units with production sites in Germany, China, Finland and Brazil, to ensure proximity to customers, a quick response to customer requirements, and short delivery times. At its Bruchsal site, SEW-EURODRIVE now produces its largest drive solutions, which are found, for example, in container terminals, in sugar cane processing, in raw materials handling, in the primary and processing industry, and in mining. Besides the large catalogue gear units, the X-series of industrial gear units is also manufactured at the plant. With finely graduated sizes, this series covers the torque range from 58 to 475 kNm. The large number of pre-defined accessories offers a high degree of flexibility for adaptation to the application situation – with a minimum of components at maximum availability.
