Steeped in 60 years of rich history, Bonfiglioli designs, produces, and distributes gearmotors, drive systems, planetary gearboxes, and inverters. The company is present in 80 countries.

Martin Broglia, managing director for Bonfiglioli ANZ, said the company handles some of the region’s most complex industrial automation demands.

“We pride ourselves on a winning combination of capability and technology and we are able to assemble drives up to 600Kw right here, on-site,” he said.

“Bonfiglioli carries a large local stock holding and offers in-house service and technical staff to assist with field service and commissioning. Our engineering team is also here to help with more technical applications.”

Bonfiglioli meets the requirements of the food and packaging industry. Broglia said the company offers solutions for grain handling and milling; baking processing; and fruit and beverage processing.

The company offers specific products for hygienic, explosion-proof and enhanced protection, developed to deliver the reliability and durability typically demanded by the food and beverage sector.

“Our products are typically found in meat and fish, poultry, diary, and packaging industries and can handle anything from delicate food packaging to large grain mills and crushers,” Broglia said.

“For grain handling and milling, we offer the F series – a shaft-mounted gearbox and geared motor. To name but a few benefits it offers easy installation, quiet operation, high torque capabilities, and energy saving.”

Broglia said another product for handling is the HDO series of heavy-duty gearboxes and geared motors.

“It acts as a one-stop complete drive solution, and offers highly transmissible power, extensive customisation, an external cooling-system and quiet operation,” he said.
