The mixer starts working with a liquid based product. The operators load various powdered chemical components to form a glue mix. The quantity introduced is based on the mechanical torque monitored by the drive. After the mixture is stabilized, the cycle ends.
Before installing Bonfiglioli’s solution
Our customer had a mixer with direct to the power grid connected gearmotor. The solution had frequent mechanical torque peaks which resulted in frequent breakage of the agitator shaft.
The reducer they were using had a hollow shaft which implies the manufacture of a solid shaft with a coupling flange.
Gearmotor - 300 Series
Our solution combines a 300M series planetary gear motor and Agile frequency inverter. A gearbox equipped with a solid shaft output and reinforced bearings, a plug-in coupling flange for the agitator shaft, and an inverter to control and monitor the motor torque
Main features of the 300M series:
Frequency Inverter - Agile Series
