In mining, the reliability of the drives is the utmost priority: Production downtimes cause massive financial damage and can cost human lives.
Our planetary gearboxes are used as travel drives in mining, as maintenance drives in mills, in thickeners and many other sophisticated mining machines. Fulfillment of relevant requirements such as ATEX compliance is naturally possible.
One interesting example is a thickener with a completely new drive concept whose efficiency was massively increased through the use of a PULSGETRIEBE gearbox with integrated bearings. The utilization of discontinued third-party gearboxes in existing machines is another one of our specialties.
Another example of application is a dumper, that is modified to drive electrically. For this project we designed a PULS Planetary Gearbox T Series with specific requirements. The 800 hp edumper is currently the biggest purely electric driven vehicle in the world. When driving downhill fully loaded, energy is generated. This energy is more than the vehicle needs to drive up again. Therefore the edumper can be used as plus-energy vehicle. More information can be found at www.edumper.ch or at YouTube.
