Bosch Rexroth and ZF industrial gearboxes are used in various industries in high-load cranes and wind turbines. Using case-hardened, tempered steel these industrial gearboxes are designed and manufactured to provide precise, reliable operation in some of the most arduous applications in the toughest operating environment.
Our industrial gearboxes combine precise operation with a compact design, smooth and quiet operating characteristics, and low maintenance that can be carried out quickly and easily, with easy fluid changes.
By designing industry-leading industrial gearboxes, Bosch Rexroth and ZF have played a central role in advancing the rise of wind power across the world. They continue to deliver new innovations in industrial gearbox technology to market, enabling more efficient, environmentally friendly systems for a greener future.
Used in all kinds of winches, including mobile and crawler cranes, railroad cranes, shipboard, dockside and container cranes, Bosch Rexroth winch drives are the ideal drive components for the most arduous applications and tough operating conditions.
With their compact design, it’s possible to mount these industrial gearboxes inside the cable drum for maximum space efficiency, and are simple to install with easy maintenance.
These industrial gearboxes are manufactured with case-hardened gearwheels and quenched, tempered and surface hardened ring gears, providing outstanding load-carrying ability, operational safety and quiet, smooth running characteristics.
Our industrial gearboxes ensure the nacelles of wind turbines are always turned in the prevailing wind direction to ensure optimum loads on the turbine components in addition to maximum energy generation.
These industrial gearboxes are equipped with 4 planetary gear stages to provide a high gear ratio. Depending on the overall size of the turbine, multiple yaw gearboxes can be used to provide higher torque as required.
Industrial gearboxes are critical for wind turbine efficiency, as the pitch of the rotor blades needs to be adjusted according to the force of the wind. Ultra-compact for maximum performance, Bosch Rexroth pitch industrial gearboxes sit at the root of each rotor blade, turning them into the optimum position for a high-efficiency energy system.
As is standard in all Bosch Rexroth and ZF components, high-quality materials combine with highly precise machining and designs by state-of-the-art machine tools to guarantee the optimum quality of industrial gearboxes.
The teeth of the planetary industrial gearboxes are case-hardened and ground, ensuring a precise, high-quality mesh over a long lifetime. They are splash lubricated to ensure a constant optimum oil supply for meshes and bearings.
