Products bulk material handling gearmotor screw conveyor drive SEW-Eurodrive shaft

The new SEW-Eurodrive Screw Conveyor Drive has been announced. The re-designed screw conveyor drive now boasts a 50% higher axial load capacity, labyrinth sealing technology, and design features for ease of maintenance, the company says.

Using the SEW shaft removal tool, even the most stubborn shaft can be removed with little effort, it adds.

Gear unit and seal maintenance is said to be streamlined, as the sealed CEMA flange takes the screw load while the gear unit is removed, minimizing the need for trough access and screw removal.

All these features coupled with the proven and reliable SEW gearmotor, make the drive suitable for bulk material handling applications. An optional mechanical seal for severe environments is available.
