May 26, 2017
Varvel recently presented its new FRP680 gearbox, developed for use in the farming industry and especially for the international poultry sector. The poultry sector is one of Varvel's most important and dynamic customers and accounts for over 60,000 pieces a years.
Coupled to a suitable motor, the new FRP680 gearbox is designed to drive the supply systems and screw conveyors that deliver animal feed. Years of experience in this sector have allowed Varvel to develop a gearbox capable of satisfying the key needs of today's market: competitive price, versatility and customization.
The FRP680 gearbox will be available in three different versions: an integrated version with a 160 mm input flange and a square output flange; a second integrated version with a 200 mm input flange and square output flange; a universal version for coupling to custom input and output flanges. The new gearbox is intended for use with motors 0.25 kW to 1.5 kW in power.
The decision to produce three different versions was made in response to the needs of the sector. The two integrated versions cover the market's most common size and configuration needs and will make a major contribution to optimizing customers' costs.
The universal version on the other hand offers maximum flexibility and customization and can be adapted to all necessary configurations, including those common in North America, whose huge poultry industry represents a new frontier with excellent growth prospects for the Varvel Group.
Modularity has always been the key guiding principle in Varvel's development of new solutions, as it allows improvements to be introduced across the entire range of Varvel products and services. The new FRP680 will be available to order in the second half of 2017.
