In the past and present, volume sizes of 30,000 kg of liquid metal have been moved with the aid of countershaft gear sets. The disadvantage of this drive unit is the large number of components that are needed to achieve the required torques. This situation requires the foundryman to assess whether, in a technical and cost comparison, it is necessary or not to have a countershaft gear set in a new pouring ladle or not, for example. The result of the analysis, which is based on the assumption of a substantial increase in costs for a countershaft gear set, influences a neutral assessment by the foundryman. It is often quite difficult in practical business.
This fact has motivated us to push ahead this sector and to expand drive technology in the realm of up to 50,000 kg of liquid metal. The consistent further development of our successful RSD gear set series 60 V to 140 V with a utilization size between 0 and 30,000 kg has led us to the RSD 180 V gear set. A gear set that enables you, as the operator, to move large dimensions dynamically and easily in a safe and playful manner.
Our tasks in developing the new drive were as follows:
