Bauer Gear BM Series Geared Motors for Overhead Conveyors
Thurella is a leading Swiss juice producer and accounts for a third of all the apple juice concentrate produced in Switzerland. The company processes around 30,000 metric tons of fruit and 7,500 metric tons of vegetables every year and is also active in the contract bottling business including juices, beer, and ice tea.
The EOC manufacturer in Schopfheim (Baden, Germany), selected Bauer Type BM20 geared motors to power each of the systems nineteen vehicles (load carriers). The BM20 units, designed for overhead conveyor drives, feature a low-backlash coupling for high positioning accuracy and are fitted with a transmitter for precise motor speed control. Units incorporate low noise gearing and are completely enclosed and sealed against dust and water spray.
