24/7 stands for reliable drives and efficient production,


for available facilities and stable processes, for dependable partnership and competent advice, for responsible
action and sustainable thinking.
That is our commitment.

What keeps moving 24/7?

FLENDER helical and bevel-helical gear units are modern drive solutions which satisfy the most varied, sometimes extreme requirements, day after day, year after year. For decades, plant operators in all conceivable
industries have used our helical gear units to achieve high plant availability and low life-cycle costs.
With the FLENDER helical gear units, Siemens offers you the most comprehensive range of industrial gear units
in the world. It includes universally applicable gear units as well as customised and application-specific gear
units and hence covers almost all drive-related needs in industry and primary production.

Over 1,000,000 versions,


one original
FLENDER helical and bevel-helical gear units

Flexibility in plant design: many


sizes, versions and add-on parts

The worlds most comprehensive gear unit assembly


kit provides universal gear solutions from 3,300 to
1,400,000 Nm as well as numerous application solutions.
The different designs of our gear units are perfectly enhanced by numerous standardised options such as motor
lanterns, non-return devices or, for example, a long-lasting seal for operation under harsh conditions. Our range
thus gives you an almost unlimited variety of design
options. The compact design of the gear units, the ability
to install them horizontally or vertically, the different
kinds of mounting (foot mounting or as a shaftmounted
gear unit) and the easy attachment of add-on components

give them the ultimate flexibility in plant design. Working


together with OEMs and users over decades has spawned
highly developed application solutions for an increasing
number of industries.
Put your trust in our quality 24/7 and build on the reliability that only we offer you!

The FLENDER range of gear units from Siemens


offers you by far the most application-specific
solutions and hence covers cover almost all
drive-related needs in industry and primary production.

Premium from really


small to really big
FLENDER planetary gear units

PLANUREX 3
PLANUREX stands for a new generation of extremely high
performance planetary gear units for a wide range of
applications. Their high efficiency level and compact
design allow high torques to be achieved in a small space.
PLANUREX offers a complete, fully standardised portfolio
of planetary gear units, combined with optimised delivery
times, an outstanding price/performance ratio and a high
degree of modularity.
In the torque range between 80,000 and 5,450,000 Nm,
PLANUREX hits the optimum point between power density, plant availability and cost. You can tell how much
you can trust in the reliability of PLANUREX 3 just from the
warranty extended by 12 months.

FLENDER planetary gear units have an extremely low power to weight ratio and are particularly suitable where
large transmission ratios are called for. Under the PLANUREX and FLENDER SIP brands, product ranges have
established themselves that stand for one thing above all: premium gear units.
We offer you reliability and durability in 24/7 operations, in no matter which industrial environment. With our
planetary gear units, ultimate performance is concentrated in the tightest of spaces. Because the gear units are
very compact. The extreme power density is reflected not only in a very low weight, but also in an attractive
price.

PLANUREX 2

FLENDER SIP

PLANUREX 2 are the biggest selling industrial planetary


gear units in the world. Not only have they proven themselves in numerous applications over many years under
the widest range of conditions, but have set standards
worldwide particularly because of their high quality.

With the FLENDER SIP range, we have succeeded in giving


the product maximum flexibility. With a wide transmission
ratio spectrum, many different types of drive shaft, compliance with the most important motor standards and a
wide variety of add-on parts, the range is ideally equipped
on the application side to be used under all possible
conditions.

The finely graduated series covers a nominal torque range


of up to 1,680,000 Nm. 13designs, 21 sizes and large
variety of types using different drive shafts, motor conformities and application-specific add-on parts, by means
of power splitting and the ability to position the motor
axially and coaxially, cover a wide range of possible
applications.

With FLENDER SIP we offer you a wide variety of high


quality and cost-effective drive solutions for slow running
applications from 10,000 to 80,000 Nm.

What keeps moving 24/7?

Every industry poses its own demands, requires specific solutions and competent advice. Based on the experience gained
from thousands of drive situations, we have standardised many application-specific solutions in the FLENDER modular system.

When it comes to drive solutions, what counts besides speed and power above all are reliability and a reasonable price/quality ratio. And as there are nearly always several drive systems that keep your facility operating,
what it essentially comes down to is to integrate reliable components to make a functioning unit. We have
decades of experience in many industries.
Every industry poses its own demands, requires specific solutions and competent advice. Siemens has been a
partner to the different industries for decades and is familiar with their specific requirements. Here is a small

From the best advice


to the best production
FLENDER couplings portfolio

Used all over the world:


FLENDER couplings

FLENDER couplings for all applications


No matter what requirements are placed on the coupling:
low or high power, demanding operating conditions or
high ambient temperatures, a dusty or explosive environment we have the whole range. Our comprehensive
range of elastic, high elastic, torsionally rigid, free-of-play
and hydrodynamic couplings offers a variety of sizes and
designs with a torque range from 10 to 10,000,000 Nm.
In over 90 years of development, design and production,
