Sealing equipment specialist Godfrey & Wing has a contract to supply its HVLV vacuum-impregnation system to SEW-Eurodrive, to seal diecast aluminum motor and gear components at its operation in Fordach, France. SEW is a developer and manufacturer of decentralized motor control technology. It also produces large industrial gearboxes, with helical, bevel helical, and planetary gears.
The system will be installed next year. According to Godfrey & Wing, the order also includes its 95-1000AA recoverable sealant and ongoing techni cal support.
Also, according to G&W, the contract resulted from SEW-Eurodrive’s plan to move its vacuum impregnation processes in-house. In-house production will reduce freight costs and production delays that necessitated by outsourcing the part-sealing stage of production.
