Renold Gears' SMX range of heavy-duty shaft mounted gearboxes are good solutions for arduous applications in mines and quarries and are available off the shelf for fast delivery as part of the company's Rapid Response service.
The SMX gearboxes are manufactured with hardened and profile ground helical gears for maximum power transmission, efficiency, long life and smooth operation. High-capacity, heavy-duty roller bearings ensure problem free operation and maximum load carrying capacity for heavy duty, arduous applications.
The gearbox casings are manufactured from close grain cast iron for robust strength and quiet, vibration free operation. Both sides of the SMX units are fully machined for face mounting options and they are interchangeable with Fenner (Eriks), Rexnord, Benzler, Sala and Dodge to enable fast and easy replacement.
The SMX range is also available with a wide range of non-standard options, including enhanced seals on the output and input shafts for use in hostile environments and a sprag clutch backstop option to prevent drive reversal, such as on inclined conveyors. The units come from the same family as Renold's PM, TM and Carter gearbox ranges, sharing their reputation for quality, reliability and service.
