Gearboxes in the food industry: needs to be respected

Posted by Marketing Varvel on Jul 16, 2018 10:50:59 AM

The food industry sector, constantly growing and developing both nationally and internationally, is among the most demanding and difficult to meet due to the stringent regulations, the high quality standards and the safety of the products offered to the consumer. Food processing companies must manage a range of food materials that travel at varying speeds through extreme temperatures, liquid dips, steam treatments, cutting techniques and a multitude of other processing methods. This is why equipment must be state of the art and must not produce potentially contaminating environmental factors, including excess dust, dirt, chemicals and grease. The components must therefore be able to resist the processing methods of food and structure environments without suffering irreparable damage or corrosion, which could cause food contamination.

How to combat temperature variations for gearboxes

Posted by Marketing Varvel on Jul 10, 2018 4:14:59 PM

Understanding the impact that the environment has on an industrial gearboxes is important for its operational efficiency. Most experts believe that the external environment and climatic factors should be taken into account when determining the useful life of the equipment, also to understand in advance how and when to perform maintenance to avoid extra costs.

Fluctuations in indoor and outdoor temperatures can affect the production quality of an industrial gearbox. Implementing some simple preventive measures could help reduce the chances of overheating the gearbox and stop malfunctions that can affect how it works on a daily basis. An advice on this is to choose the best lubricant, understanding the technical characteristics and combining it with the climatic factors that influence the equipment.

How OEMs can benefit from gearbox customization

Posted by Marketing Varvel on Apr 16, 2018 4:35:30 PM

Do you produce industrial machinery and are you looking for gearboxes that do not create problems and that can be adapted to your needs to give more authority to your market?

There is a whole series of customizations and adaptations that can be demanded by a gearbox, because the goal is the final machine, and the characteristics that must have as a component must be adaptable and conform to the overall technical and practical requirements.

How to save and increase the efficiency of your machinery thanks to the helical gearboxes

Posted by Marketing Varvel on Apr 6, 2018 3:18:22 PM

An increasing trend across industrial plants in all sectors has been to reduce costs by replacing spur and worm gears with high-efficiency helical equipment. Helical gears are more expensive than the classic worm and spur gears they replace. However, they are also more efficient, reduce energy costs, run cooler, are quieter, and require overall less maintenance. In short, helical gearboxes are excellent at saving your business money, time, and energy over the long-term.

How to monitor the efficiency of machinery through gear vibrations

Posted by Marketing Varvel on Apr 5, 2018 5:51:42 PM

Gears are critical components of industrial gearbox but they are also the fundamental components for making the machine work. It is very important that they work perfectly, as intended or your entire operation could come to a halt. Gearboxes, while tough, are sensitive machines prone to failure if not properly maintained. These machines are often subjected to extreme stress and high temperatures. As a result, even the smallest misalignment could be deleterious, so it is recommended to prevent breakdowns through continuous monitoring.

Gearboxes in chemical and pharmaceutical industry

Posted by Marketing Varvel on Mar 2, 2018 12:28:27 PM

Gearboxes are also used in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and manage the speed, operations and workflow of the machines used: from the phase of creating the chemical bases to the packaging of the finished product. Some laboratory plants and the production cycle of medical products, or more generally of synthetic substances, find the presence of epicycloidal gearboxes, gearboxes with parallel axis and gearboxes with orthogonal axis.

VARfast: assembling solutions that come in a flash!

Posted by Marketing Varvel on Feb 21, 2018 3:45:44 PM


Sometimes, technical problems and breakdowns interrupt the working day. Gearboxes are fundamental components in industrial production and must always work as efficiently as possible. When there are problems with one of these machines, you risk losing a lot of time and blocking the entire production process, with headaches and enormous difficulties. Solving the defect can become the sole purpose of the week, looking for spare parts available in the shortest possible time, to meet deadlines and shipments.

Custom and modular square flanges

Posted by Marketing Varvel on Feb 6, 2018 6:26:14 PM

Expansion of the service thanks to the modular square flanges

The new square flanges for servomotors and stepper motors will give Varvel's extensive offering greater modularity and will facilitate customization. At Hannover Messe the Varvel Group introduced a new range of customized square flanges designed to extend the scope for customization and make it easier than ever for customers to find the right solution to their needs. IEC flanges conform to the same standards all over the world, but no unified design parameters exist for stepper motor and brushless servomotor flanges. As a result the diameter of couplings varies from one production area to another and there is no global compatibility. This situation obviously makes the market for square flanges extremely complex. Some manufacturers with specific needs demand custom designs to match the motors they use, while others set about adapting conventional flanges, not always with excellent results.

Guide complet sur les reducteurs de vitesses les plus frèquentes

Posted by Marketing Varvel on Feb 1, 2018 10:36:00 AM

Dèfinition: qu'est ce qu'un rèducteur de vitesse?

Les réducteurs de vitesses (boîtes de vitesses) ont toujours été considérés comme des composants essentiels dans le monde de la mécanique, leur succès réside dans leur utilité. Les boîtes de vitesses sont des transmissions à engrenages mécaniques qui transportent le mouvement d'un moteur vers la machine à laquelle elles sont appliquées, réduisant la vitesse dans le but de l’adapter aux besoins du fonctionnement. Tout en réduisant la vitesse, le réducteur multiplie la force fournie, techniquement défini couple. L'exemple le plus courant est celui du changement de bicyclette: le cycliste peut utiliser la même force sur des terrains plats  ou sur des cols alpins.Le fait d'avoir une facilité à faire fonctionner de grandes machines ,véhicules..., en utilisant des petits moteurs, fait des réducteurs de vitesses de la manière plus rationnelle, fiable et économique des transmetteurs de puissance.
