SEW Eurodrive Gear Units

High-quality units, such as the M Series from SEW Eurodrive, come with several features that are energy efficient and quality performance. Did you know Kurz is one of only two, Premium Value Partners with SEW Eurodrive today? That makes Kurz one of only two places you can get these superior products. We're here to answer any questions you have. Here's some information to get you started on the M Series.

Flexibility with Application

M Series units from SEW Eurodrive don't come as a fixed product. It's up to the end user to specify the application and finer details. Each gear unit can be customized to your turbine's strict parameters, such as choosing horizontal or vertical shafts. This series is great for:

·      Conveyor systems used in building material, food, chemical and feed industries

·      Timber and paper

·      Steel and environmental industries

·      Bucket elevators

·      Bulk material handling

The gear unit must be in a particular orientation in order to transfer power in an effective manner. In fact, SEW Eurodrive created nine sizes of the M Series alone. They wanted variety because they know the torque values will make a difference in energy production.

Thermal and Torque Specifications

You have to be able to trust in the parts once they're installed. Remotely monitoring them should be a breeze afterward.

M Series gear units come with various torques that range from 53,000 to 1.6 million pound-inch values. Simply specify the loads that you need. Every gear unit has high-thermal ratings too. Heat shouldn't be a concern unless a catastrophic scenario plays out, such as a fire outbreak. SEW Eurodrive strives to design gear units that work in the harshest environments.

Maintenance Ease

SEW Eurodrive's M Series comes with a split-case design. In essence, technicians can pop open the housing, service the parts and close it back up.

Most gear units depend on lubrication and oil changes throughout the year. Their operational time is what determines the service schedule. Making it easy to access the gears is part of the ingenious design within the M Series. Technicians can finish up their tasks in no time.

Choosing Gear Stages

The M Series comes in 3-, 4- or 5-gear stages. Selecting the type that works for your application is dependent upon dozens of factors - that's what our team is here for. We can help you choose the exact product for your application.

The gear stages will alter the torque levels in your system so that the energy is efficiently transferred. A common goal is reducing energy loss. The components involved with each transfer section contribute to either losses or gains. Select the proper gear stage so that get the best efficacy in the industry.

Following Mounting Instructions

Industrial gear units cannot rest on a shaky foundation. These components are mechanical and rotational by nature. SEW Eurodrive suggests that every unit should be connected to a sturdy foundation. Steel frames are adequate, but caution must be practiced if vibrations or oscillations occur.

Constant shaking will limit the gears' efficacy as the rotor blades rotate. You'll see more breakdowns too. Our team at Kurz can help you make the most out of your installation. Foundations and specifications can be simplified with a meeting of the minds.
