Bonfiglioli Introduces New Planetary Drive Series
June 17, 2021
Bonfiglioli presents the new R3 planetary gearbox series, designed specifically for recycling machines such as shredders and others. The planetary drives are available in four sizes with a torque range from 129,000 up to 370,000 Nm and gear ratios from 56 to 117. The R3 series is compact and powerful. Their planetary gear train makes them the ideal choice for all severe duty applications where shock loads and impacts are the rule rather than the exception. Adverse conditions, which often prevail in the recycling process, are easily absorbed by the gearbox. The robust R3 planetary gear drives impress with an extremely favorable torque/size ratio and run perfectly even at low speeds. Fast speed changes are no problem for the compact yet extremely powerful R3 gearboxes.
The product configuration is highly flexible, due to several options for mounting, gear layout, output shaft and motor interface. According to the torque need and customer machine layout, R3 series can be equipped with 1, 2 or 4 hydraulic motor adapters. Electric motor adapter is also available upon request.
Bonfiglioli planetary drives are the ideal choice for harsh operating conditions. This is especially true for applications in which load peaks occur frequently. Their planetary drives are able to exploit their fundamental strengths in comparison to other types of drives: Their constructive design ensures load distribution, protects the bearings and extends the service life.
