Reggiana Riduttori Launches New W-Series

RR HollandReggiana Riduttori (RR), an established Italian manufacturer of planetary reduction gears, has launched its new W-Series. The W-Series planetary winch drives are an innovative solution for the maritime and offshore industry.

Thanks to their compactness and flexibility, they are a perfect drive for winch application. The smart design allows these winch drives to be integrated in winch drums. They can be connected directly or indirectly to either an electric or hydraulic motor. Typical applications include winches for port cranes, offshore cranes, truck-mounted cranes, material handling and drilling machinery. Even when assembled in the drum, the RR winches can be easily maintained, as all the interfaces are on the motor side. A guaranteed long lifetime and resistance to high radial loads and peak torques are just a couple of the many features of the W-Series.

The gear units can be used with custom-made accessories to ensure a perfect and simple assembly on the application. The W-Series can be equipped with either electrical or hydraulic motor connections and negative brakes with backstop device. The double radial shaft seal protection ensures a safe and long-lasting product. These drives are available in two, three and four stages, as well as bevel options. Due to the design, the ratio can be easily modified when necessary. The T2 max static torque ranges from 58.000N⋅m to 1.100.000N⋅m, while the T2 fem ranges from 39.000N⋅m to 660.000N⋅m.
