Inching Drives

Shutting down and starting up grinding mills for maintenance and inspections can be challenging and dangerous. Many companies still rely on manual techniques to move machinery through its cycles, such as jogging the start/stop button. This inefficient technique is not only hazardous for workers but potentially damaging to mechanical systems.

Eaton Inching Drive Systems are the safer, simpler, faster solutions. These low-power, high torque auxiliary drives allow you to control mill rotational movement from an inching pace to of up to two revolutions per minute. They're designed and engineered to help elevate safety, prevent load freezing, simplify maintenance, extend component lifetimes and maximize mill uptime.
