Kennady V Kaippally, Country Manager-India - Bonfiglioli Transmissions
Bonfiglioli has been investing in new technologies and has developed a range of products for varied applications. Some of the products that we have lined up for display at Excon are Bonfiglioli 700CE planetary track drives, planetary axles and drives, and Bonfiglioli 600WE planetary wheel drives.

Infrastructure requirements coupled with need for mechanization and shift to specialized, more productive equipment, are the key growth drivers for the CE industry.
We have a very positive outlook on the future of power transmissions in general and fluid power solutions, in particular, for the Indian construction, mining and material handling equipment. The need for mechanization and shift to specialized, more productive equipment will generate a need for innovative power transmission and fluid power solutions that must meet specific local Indian requirements.

Challenges in such an environment will need developing or adapting products and manufacturing capabilities that suit the specific demands of the Indian market. Bonfiglioli with its local design center and manufacturing facilities and its presence in India for two decades, has gained a deeper understanding of the market and is, therefore, well placed to take advantage of these opportunities.

Smart, digital and electrical technologies are permeating all walks of industries and the construction equipment industry is not immune to these disruptive phenomena.
Bonfiglioli 700CE planetary track drives coupled with a high-power density electric motor are specifically designed for high-voltage hybrid powertrain systems. An integrated, maintenance-free IPM (internal permanent magnet) electric motor is included, giving significant benefits in terms of dimensions and efficiency.

Bonfiglioli high-efficiency, low-noise planetary axles and drives with integrated high-performance electric motors and low maintenance braking systems are ideal for tow tractors and other such applications.

Bonfiglioli 600WE planetary wheel drives incorporate an integrated, maintenance-free electric motor and offer significant benefits, including compact dimensions, low noise and high efficiency. The 600 Series of drives are designed for use with all kinds of aerial platforms and other types of mobile machines, for indoor and outdoor use.

Extreme compactness, reliability, efficiency and smooth operation are the key features of our 700CK series of track drives.
Market trends in transmission systems of construction equipment’s are driven by the ever-increasing expectations of the customer from their equipment. Given the cost pressures inherent in the Indian market, productivity, reliability and fuel efficiency are right at the top of customers’ expectations. Design of a transmission plays a vital part in delivering on these diverse expectations.

Bonfiglioli having worked with all major OEMs across the globe in construction equipment, has decades of experience that enables it to provide solutions meeting these objectives. One such solution that we offer is the 700CK series of drives used on tracked machines ranging from 1.5 to 120 tons. These products are the result of our partnership with Kayaba Industries CO. and represent the best in class solution for the industry.

All the hydraulic and the mechanical functions like power drive, operating and travel speed, hydraulic and mechanical emergency braking system, and overload protection, are incorporated in a single unit. Extreme compactness, reliability, efficiency and smooth operation are the key feature of 700CK series of track drives.

IoT and electronics are becoming important tools for bringing efficiency, sustainability and latest emission norms to the new-age equipment.
Digital tools support the operator by providing information on all the necessary parameters in real time. This enables him to operate the machine in the most optimum mode to achieve fuel economy and productivity.

Bonfiglioli has many unique solutions where electronic and hydraulic features are integrated in a mechanical transmission system to provide the right online feedback mechanism to equipment operators across applications. One of our patented solution is integration of load cell with the gearbox. This quickly and precisely measures torque and enables torque monitoring in real time. Connected via an external cable connection, the system provides an automatic engine shut­down to protect the drive or reduce the capacity of the frequency converter, while providing information to the PLC. The system also has an ant seize function which prevents blockages. The evaluation of its data also facilitates predictive maintenance.

The new integrated load bearing system allows Bonfiglioli for the first time in the market to deploy an intelligent solution, combining our historic excellence in transmission manufacturing with new age digital tools.

Being a leader in our field of business, we set benchmarks for performance and quality; address price-competitiveness by working together with our customers.
Our products lie at the heart of the construction equipment as their performance is critical to the overall performance of the equipment. Being a leader in our field of business, we set benchmarks for performance; thus, quality is an uncompromising facet of our business.

However, price competitiveness in the cost–conscious Indian market can’t be ignored, and we address it by working together with our customers. This involves in-depth study of duty cycles for right sizing of products, understanding machine features for product optimisation, and continuous improvements by way of VAVE projects. Our local engineering centre works closely with our customers to achieve these objectives.

We partner with OEMs to develop highly customized power transmission solutions.
We have been present in India for two decades and our business philosophy has been to partner with OEMs who are leaders in their business to develop tailor made, highly customized power transmission solutions catering to their requirements. This approach requires a constant engagement of our R&D with customers in order to improve the lifecycle and total customer experience.

Bonfiglioli, with its local India R&D Centre, is well placed to engage with customers to develop products that meet these specific requirements. The R&D Centre works right from data acquisition of equipment in the field to understanding the operating conditions and transforming this information into a customised product to achieve total customer satisfaction.

Today, we are a one-stop-shop for our customers catering to their diverse requirements for different product ranges and have the largest market share in each of these segments.
