AND THE ACTION KICKS IN
Want to become a net zero business?
CEP offers comprehensive training and
accreditation in carbon and energy
management planning. The outputs of the
• A comprehensive carbon and energy
management plan for your business;
• A plan which guides you to reducing
emissions in line with your corporate
• A trained and qualified staff member to
guide and manage your decarbonisation
The next delivery of the programme is
taking place in Auckland in early May 2020.
PLANT HIRE COMPANY
INSTALLS POLYMER BUCKET
A New Zealand plant hire company, which carries
out its own repairs and sells original equipment
and other parts, has installed four high-wearresistant
no-grease polymer Vesconite bucket
bushings (also called skip bushings) on a Volvo
A30 dump truck.
The polymer bucket bushings replace green
nylon OEM-supplied ones and are a like-for-like
application, since the measurements of the OEM

part are identical to that supplied by Vesconite.
However, they will not wear out as quickly as nylon
and will not have to be greased as often.
“The application will definitely work,” says
Vesonite’s Eddie Swanepoel, adding that Vesconite
Bearings has been successful with a similar part
in a UK OEM’s articulated dump truck (ADT) and
has also had success with replacement parts for
various ADT makes and models.
The Carbon & Energy Professionals/
Sustainability Society 2020 Conference
provides the opportunity to learn how to
decarbonise your business from experts
and share experiences with peers facing
the same issues as you.
The two-day conference mixes educational
presentations, panel discussions,
research presentations and networking
These two days provide real advice, real
examples and real solutions.

IMPROVED TORQUE LEVELS FOR
MAXON BRUSHLESS DC MOTORS
The maxon brushless flat motors are now available
in combinations with planetary gearboxes,
encoders and vented rotors for increased torque.
The recently released 90mm diameter Brushless
DC ventilated motors from maxon gave power
level increases from 160W to 600W within the
same diameter. Two length options of 27.4mm
and 39.9mm are selectable with two air cooling
options. Four winding options are available for DC
voltages varying from 12 to 60VDC.
Continuous torque capability is up to 1610mNm
from the motor alone and when combined with
planetary, worm and helical gearhead options
repeated peak torque levels of 650Nm have been
achieved. High ratios and 25600qc integrated
internal encoders make them extremely useful
products for rotary joint applications such as
robotics and industrial machinery actuators.
Maxon can also manufacture custom versions with
specific cable looms and rear shafts for mounting
loads on both sides of the motor.
The combination of the flat motors with high
stiffness, low profile, zero backlash, trochoidal style
gearheads also makes the complete drive suitable
for wheel drive applications such as autonomous
ground vehicles and warehouse logistic machinery.
