A wide range of reliable, effective solutions for tough environments
Bonfiglioli operates in electro-mechanical power transmissions and electronic power control, and more specifically in gearboxes, gearmotors and AC drives serving a very wide spectrum of applications and sectors in stationary and mobile machinery - including the mining industry.
We have been active in the mining industry since the very beginning, and thanks to various product developments and geographical expansions we’ve built a solid reputation in this sector. We now offer the largest range of planetary, parallel shaft helical and bevel helical drives to meet any customer need in this tough, demanding sector.
Our product range and its proven reliability are only the starting point of a profitable relationship with our customers, starting with a deep study of the application, working out customized solutions and finally offering full product lifetime services to keep the plant productivity the highest possible.
Mines are, by nature, very tough environments, usually located in the harshest regions of the world, with sometimes extreme temperatures (hot summers in South America can easily reach 45°C, and the cold Siberian winters -30°C). Add to that a dusty environment, the sandstorms of the Middle East or the salty air of plants close to the sea. All this, besides the conditions under which the machine is used, must be taken into account at the design stage.
This is why we have developed a dedicated product series for the heavy duty and mining sector. More specifically, we develop solutions
300M SeriesBonfiglioli's 300M Series is an outstanding solution for all heavy-duty applications where compactness is not an option. Thanks to its modular design, the 300M Series can be customized to match an extremely wide range of applications. Bonfiglioli's expertise in planetary technology ensures high-quality product design and manufacturing procedures. The 300 Series operates without unwanted downtime even in the harshest environments. This planetary gearbox achieves top-class flexibility thanks to several outputs, as well as input configurations available for all 20 sizes. The 300M Series can be completed with a wide range of electric motors entirely manufactured by Bonfiglioli. Asynchronous motors (BN-BE-BX/M-ME-MX) can be coupled with 300M Series gearboxes, providing our customers a complete solution.
HDP SeriesWhen high output torque, robustness reliability and long operating life must be achieved, Bonfiglioli's HDx Series represent the best solution for our custmers needs. Thanks to high quality materials and an optimized design, HD Series can operate in the harshest environemt, as well as in explosive atmospheres, with low maintenance costs and long time service intervals. The output shaft can be chosen both in the parallel (HDP) or right angle(HDO) configuration and to always ensure the minimization of mounting space. HDx Series, furthermore, can be deeply customized thanks to an extremely wide options and accessories portfolio, thus matching most of the requirements of a large applications number.
HDO SeriesWhen high output torque, robustness reliability and long operating life must be achieved, Bonfiglioli's HDx Series represent the best solution for our custmers needs. Thanks to high quality materials and an optimized design, HD Series can operate in the harshest environemt, as well as in explosive atmospheres, with low maintenance costs and long time service intervals. The output shaft can be chosen both in the parallel (HDP) or right angle(HDO) configuration and to always ensure the minimization of mounting space. HDx Series, furthermore, can be deeply customized thanks to an extremely wide options and accessories portfolio, thus matching most of the requirements of a large applications number.
3/H SeriesThe Bonfiglioli 3/H Series combines the high torque density of planetary gear units with the robustness and high-speed operation of the helical bevel heavy-duty products. This configuration can provide great power transmission in a very compact space, thanks to its angular layout. The 3/H Series can also come with a set of features such as hydraulic couplings or cooling circuits, adapted according to customers' needs..
F SeriesThe F Series is perfectly suited to any crawler and milling machine. Thanks to compact, rugged design, high torque and load capabilities, these solutions are the best possible option for thes machines. All units are available with a fail-safe parking brake and for most cartridge type fixed or variable systems. Different disengagement systems are available on demand for all the sizes.
S SeriesThe S Series design makes this gearmotor particularly effective for pump, fan and blower applications. To meet the needs of customers in these sectors, the S Series is also available in the foot or flange versions and can be completed with a wide range of electric motors entirely manufactured by Bonfiglioli. Asynchronous motors both IEC and compact (BN-BE-BX/M-ME-MX) and reluctance motors (BSR) can be coupled with the S Series. With the breadth of its portfolio, Bonfiglioli provides customers with an outstanding balance of efficiency, dynamics and cost effectiveness.
We work very closely with the OEM to jointly design the most suitable solutions for our customers. Bonfiglioli looks very carefully at the after sales, granting the best possible support on service and spare parts, helping customers in reducing the down time of the machine and increasing the profitability for the operating companies
Thanks to our worldwide network of branches, distributors and service companies we are able to support our customers all around the world with our technical support. Plus, local assembly allows us to give continuity to the end user maintenance activities by providing spare parts and service in a very short time.
We really have a comprehensive approach to the mining sector: we have Key Accounting Teams that deal directly with Multinational Mining OEMs. Our Local teams of application and service engineers are then capable of follow-up, offering 24/7 service to all of them, or directly to the mining site when required.
According to the World Economic Forum, 79% of mining companies are accelerating the digitalization and adoption of digital tools and processes. Main drivers are certainly:
For a few years, we have developed IIOT solutions with the clear target to extend the lifetime of gear units and to reduce downtime to the very minimum.
Our sensorized units produce many interesting and useful data which, also thanks to the Bonfiglioli algorithm, produce paramount pieces of information for the Mining companies like:
It means having full control of a critical component like the gear units and managing risks of production losses and O&M costs at best possible.
