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.

Gearboxes in glass and ceramic industry

Posted by Marketing Varvel on Jan 30, 2018 1:10:47 PM

The glass and ceramic manufacturing industries are steeped in craftsmanship and employ highly skilled labour. They have also modernized over the years, introducing more and more automation in order to boost production capacity.

The machines involved in glass and ceramic production processes must be able to operate with only a minimum of down time for maintenance and repairs. This can only be achieved through the use of reliable, high performance drive systems capable of guaranteeing the continuous production needed to satisfy demand, that can be adapted and customized (for more information see article System customization thanks to the modularity of gearboxes).

Thanks to the range of technologically advanced, reliable and easily implemented reducers in the various automatic solutions, Varvel is the ideal supplier for machinery manufacturers for the glass and ceramics industries. Varvel’s high-tech gearboxes are extremely achieved and ideal for applications in process automation. Varvel is therefore the preferred supplier to many constructors of production machinery for the glass and ceramic industries.
