Customer care by supplying cutting-edge, useful and practical services has always been a key priority for the Bonfiglioli Group. This is why the Mobile & Wind Business Unit has developed a smartphone app dedicated to electromobility solutions to provide answers to the everyday needs of customers and the Bonfiglioli sales network.
Take the Road to a Real-Time Supply Chain. Interview to Simone Bonantini on the implementation and the main keypoints of the SAP Supply Chain tools for the Mobile and Wind business units that granted the SAP Gold Quality Award to Bonfiglioli. This video was used at SAP Sapphire 2013 in Orlando to introduce this project as a success story.

At Windpower 2012 (June 3-6 in Atlanta, GA), Bonfiglioli displayed its new yaw drive, the 712TW. The new yaw drive, which controls nacelle orientation of a wind turbine, is a much smaller, more lightweight gearmotor with an integrated inverter.
The result is a complete yaw system in one unit, which guarantees improved performance and delivers various advantages in terms of reliability and availability. The new yaw drive is ideally suited for turbines producing 3MW of power or more and can be quickly and easily retrofitted in an existing nacelle, without having to change the mechanical layout of the nacelle.
Bonfiglioli has been developing solutions for the wind industry for almost 30 years. One out of every three wind turbines globally uses a Bonfiglioli gearbox.
Bonfiglioli designs and manufactures pitch drives for rotor blade positioning and yaw drives for nacelle orientation. With Bonfiglioli, the wind turbine is "always towards the best wind," whether on shore or off shore.
Bonfiglioli also designs and manufactures a completely integrated inverter solution to direct the electricity created by the wind turbine to the power grid.
