Bonfiglioli´s first step in its expanding
and innovative IE3 product series

2 new motor series fulfilling IE3 class requirements are now available in the 7.5-22kW rangeBonfiglioli fosters initiatives for sustainable energy use and for the exploitation of renewable energy sources. The ongoing worldwide process to improve electric motor efficiency is top priority for the company, and as a leading firm in the renewable energy business, it is dedicated to making this transition for all its customers. The release of the new energy-efficient BX/MX motors is further proof of Bonfiglioli´s commitment to environmental preservation.

The BX/MX motors fulfil several requirements and environmental norms. The motors meet standards of IE3 efficiency class, according to the international standard IEC 60034-30. The »X» of the new BX/MX motors stands for »eXcellence» in efficiency since the IE3 is the top efficiency rating currently formalized by global standards.

In addition, to meeting IE3 standards, the BM/MX motors are also compliant to Ecodesign Requirements for Electric Motors (Regulation (EC) No 640/2009 - Commission Regulation (EC) No 640/2009 of 22 July 2009 implementing Directive 2005/32/EC) as set forth by the European Parliament and the Council with regard to Ecodesign requirements for electric motors.

The BX/MX motors offer a highly efficient and cost-effective solution that has a lower environment impact. The motors provide protection degree up to IP65 as well as thermal protection (Bi-Metallic or Ptc). Furthermore, the motors include incremental and absolute encoder availability and an anti-condensate drain. All these cutting-edge features make the BX/MX motors ideal for a diverse range of applications that require low energy consumption, particularly continuous duty actions.

With the release of the new BX/MX series, Bonfiglioli offers a complete range of asynchronous motors.

Bonfiglioli, FDK and FZP versions:
New easy maintenance series

The new FDK and FZP versions dramatically simplify operations for applications that require periodic maintenance. They also enable a quick and easy disassembling of the gearbox from the machine, thanks to the new output stage design. These design innovations are highly beneficial for applications in the mining, sugar processing and marine sectors.Bonfiglioli´s 300 Series is a robust and versatile solution perfectly suited for harsh applications where shock loadings and impacts are more the rule than the exception. It features strong bearings to ensure a long lifespan. Bonfiglioli´s ongoing mission to improve and innovate their planetary gearboxes

for industrial applications has led to two important new features that result in an easier and safer assembling/disassembling of the drive to/from the application. The new FDK and FZP versions feature an output hollow shaft that will make the series more effective and suitable for "shaft mount" assembly. The hollow shaft solutions reduce the time and effort for the disassembling of the drive from the customer´s machine shaft, thanks to the new solution with the axial locking ring. The new product solutions make mounting and commissioning easier and faster thanks to the smarter design and allow for easier and more accurate screw tightening.

Furthermore, the cutting-edge design of the shrink disk will improve and speed up set up and commissioning.

The hollow shaft with the two keys at 120° will allow full rated torque and max torque transmissions. The axial locking ring with threaded holes completes the solution for an easier and more reliable shaft mounting. They keyed hollow shaft is available in smaller sizes, ranging from 300 to 310 and will be included in the designation of the series with the acronym »FDK»; when the FZP version is available it will come in larger sizes from 311 to 325.

Another advanced design component of the new 300 series is the splined hollow shaft which meets the DIN 5480 standard and offers the same strong bearings available in the current FP version. It provides double centering for an aligned assembling of the solid shaft of the machine. Like the keyed hollow shaft, the splined hollow shaft also includes an axial locking key with threaded holes for easier mounting and grants full rated and max torque transmissions.

The new shrink disks prevent accidental mounting errors (even when dismounting and re-mounting the shrink disk) thanks to simpler design and »visual-control» of screw tightening torque.

This advanced design makes the 300 series now complete and effective for any shaft mounted requirements for all sizes and ratios. The series has a torque range of 1,000-1,287000 Nm and gear ratios of 3.4-5,234.

Bonfiglioli´s new 300 series offers customers a higher quality and more flexible solution due to its ability to adapt to client and application requirements and provides more control during the mounting process. It is also the most compact solution available on the market.
