Gearless mill drive maintenance and installation

Gearless mill drive systems connect the motor directly to the mill, as the name suggests this eliminates the need for gears, gearboxes and couplings. The benefits are a touchless drive system which means less interface and higher equipment availability, Siemens boast above 95% availability when maintained and installed correctly. EMF has been engaged to assist in maintaining and improving these machines by replacing sealing arrangements, dry ice blasting, reinsulating the windings and ongoing internal cleaning. The EMF team have extensive experience with Gearless mill drives and have played key roles in the installation process.
