Bonfiglioli launches a new helical, in-line geared motor under the company’s new Evox platform. The platform reportedly features enhanced modularity, the broad use of gear grinding processes and specific “low noise” gear design. The Evox platform is characterized by a simple, clean design, suitable for any application environment.
The new helical In-Line Gearmotor CP combines with the new Asynchronous IE3/NEMA premium high efficiency electric motors. The synergies between these two new concepts create an efficient, strong, small and simple gearmotor ecosystem, according to the company. The in-line gear units will initially be released in six sizes: 55, 100, 200, 335, 500 and 650 Nm with motor power between 0.12 and 15 kW IE3.
The Evox CP gear unit is suited for higher precision, demanding applications due to the reduced backlash configuration available in the standard catalogue. Evox CP also helps eliminate any customer experienced friction due to a lubrication concept that allows the gearmotor to be used in any mounting position, overcoming the need to change the oil level and oil plug configuration. This gives customers the flexibility to use the product in any orientation.
The geared motors will be available in compact and IEC flanged versions, allowing customers to choose between a standardized motor and a dimensionally optimized configuration. BXN motor, the IEC standard, and MXN motor, the compact version, share most of the configuration and options, including dynamic brake, incremental and absolute encoders, thermal sensors and switches. The new standard motor terminal box is shaped with nine PIN connectors, for up to 8 different voltages at 50Hz or 60Hz power supply with a single winding, making it suitable for the EU, US, Indian and Australian markets. Six windings reportedly cover the rest of the world.
