Beier® Variator

“Every grape variety requires a different delivery rate to the crusher. Bigger berries require a low rate, say 50 tons an hour, while delivery rate for smaller berries might be 100 tons an hour... We needed a drive that was as maintenance-free as possible. We also wanted something with no mechanical problems. At a meeting of a nearby engineers' club, I heard comments about the Sumitomo Beier Variator. I was sold.”

“We need high precision in maintaining speed relationships between critical machine components. The speed relationships are locked by gear ratios... But we must be able to vary the speed of the winder independently and with sufficient precision to give us fine control of package density and yarn tension. Sumitomo does this so conveniently, economically and reliably.”
