Advanced helical gearbox range expands Brevini Australia’s offering

Dana SAC Australia has just expanded its product offering, with the release of the latest range of gear motors and gearboxes based on three product types: parallel shaft helical, inline helical, and right-angle helical bevel.

Dana SAC Australia has just expanded its product offering, with the release of the latest range of gear motors and gearboxes based on three product types: parallel shaft helical, inline helical, and right-angle helical bevel.

The housing material is GG20-GG22 cast iron, with the gears made of quality case carburised steel. The input otions include electric motor with and without brake, Brevini integrated motor or IEC or NEMA mounts to suit users’ preferred brand of electric motor. Options for pneumatic and hydraulic motor inputs and solid input shaft also available. The range is European-designed and manufactured and is interchangeable with other European manufacturers.

K Series Helical Bevel gearboxes featuring a monoblock housing are designed for higher efficiency and greater strength, these gearboxes are ideal for applications like conveyors, mixers, small winches and the like. The K series helical bevel gearbox has flexible connection possibilities and options such as integral backstops.

Output and mounting options range from hollow, solid, shrink disc and double output shafts, with flange, foot or torque arm mounting to suit user application. Smaller gearboxes are supplied in two- and three-stage configuration, with larger sizes only available as three stage units. The K series gearmotors are rated up to 90 kW.

Ideal for applications like screw conveyors, bucket elevators, shredders and screw presses, the D Series Helical Gearboxes feature a parallel shaft which provides mounting support and makes these compact and easier to fit. The range is supplied as flange mounted, foot mounted, parallel shaft mounted or in a combination of these mounting alternatives and are rated up to 160kW.

Designed as modular units, the output shaft and flange can be added to the standard parallel shaft gearbox, without any change on the gearbox. Mounting points are located on both sides of the housing. The D Series can be combined with other types of gearboxes, with little modification. They also offer advantages in radial loads.

M and N Series gearboxes are ideal for applications like progressive cavity pumps, high volume axial fans and with strengthened output housing for mixer and aerator drives. Designed as monoblock units, the gearboxes offer greater rigidity, less oil leakage, lower noise levels and high gear strength. The bearings are supported by the single piece housing itself and not by cover plates of other components.

These gearboxes support high radial loads and are supplied in either foot or flange mounting, with two or three stages in a single housing. The modular design allows the user to couple two gearboxes with little modification. The largest gearbox in the range has a rating up to 90kW.

Ideal for use in overhead and tower cranes, the V Series parallel shaft helical gearboxes are also monoblock units. The design of the monoblock housing allows for flange mounting directly to the drum frame using a locating spigot and flange mounting positions. Output shafts are solid spline according to DIN5480.

The V series units feature longer bearing distance and taper rolling bearings allowing the units to withstand high radial loads. They are designed for higher ISO/FEM classes with larger gear face widths, compared to competitive products of similar size. There are five models available with differing load capabilities up to 45kW.
