Despite a marked downturn in the South African platinum industry over the last year, SEW Eurodrive has still managed to secure work in both greenfield and brownfield platinum projects in the Bushveld Igneous Complex (BIC) in Mpumalanga. The company says that, even though South Africa saw a general decrease in the amount of work coming from the platinum sector, it has still maintained its workload as clients are starting to realise the benefits of its modular system and combination options. The platinum industry has been applying the company’s products and solutions to a vast range of applications, including incline belts, as well as strike and overland belts. The vast selection of geared solutions ranges from 25 Nm to 475 kNm, while the selection of variable electronic speed drives vary according to kilowatt and voltage requirements. The company has long been involved in the mining industry and, as such, understands the wide range of tasks that must be performed economically, with modularity and reliability as a priority.
