St Ingbert – SGS Sonder Getriebe Service has designed maintenance-friendly 3MW drive units for overland conveying systems, for one of the leading materials handling equipment manufacturers. SGS achieves the optimized maintainability for its drive units by utilization of FEA-optimized drive components and wear free seals on input and output shafts.

“Reliable and maintenance-friendly seals on large gear units are very important,” emphasizes Uwe Hackenberger, the managing director of SGS Sonder Getriebe Service.

These gear units are designed as reverse-mounting gear units, which can be easily installed as left-hand or right-hand drive units on conveyor systems. These design features reduce the operational maintenance and costs.

SGS also stocks a wide variety of spare parts for the end-user.

The drive units are mounted with a hydraulic flange coupling onto the drive pulley. The complete drive unit is 7.5m long and 4.15m high and weights about 50t.
