planetary gearboxes

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.

Due to the advanced up to date range of gearboxes, dependable and easily implemented in the various automated solutions, Varvel is the preferred supplier for manufacturers of machineries for the glass and ceramic industries.

An excellent example of the products involved in these sectors is the RG series of planetary gearboxes with reduced backlash. Their main features are precision, efficiency and lack of noise: thanks to the reduced backlash and increased reliability, gearboxes of the RG series allow specific settings for exact positioning and are used in precision machinery.

Some of the most usual applications are end-of-line sorting for ceramic tiles, surface grinding and polishing, glass processing, brick and roof tile drying.
