In ports and marine installations all over the world quayside and dockside cranes employing Brevini's standard or PDL range of modular planetary gearboxes are operating around the clock loading enormous conveyors onto ships.
The proven reliability and strength of the planetary gearboxes in this operation is matched by the Brevini slewing gear units which rotate the fully loaded cranes, smoothly and accurately, in all types of temperatures and climatic conditions.
Also adding to improved efficiency in ports is Brevini's range of winches. These provide robust, highly reliable and precise operation in all types of marine applications involving lifting, pulling and raising tasks.

Brevini Australia | Gearboxes, Drives, Hydraulics & Winches
Our company philosophy at Brevini Australia has always been inspired by a few, simple ideas: Ruggedness, Compactness and Strength.
These terms relate strongly to the gear units produced by our company since the 1960's.
Today, we build gearboxes in Australia, keep stocks of gear modules and a variety of locally produced housings, shafting and bearings.
We specialise in application of planetary gearboxes with hydraulic and AC drive technology to low speed, high torque equipment. Our reducers are also particularly suited to thickener, agitator, mixer, feeder conveyors, inching, long travel and slewing drives.
Planetary gearing has the highest torque to weight ratio of any type. The gear units are robust, flexible in configuration and extremely simple to mount, service or modify. As well, competitively priced, our gear units area able to meet the demands of the most sophisticated as well as the simplest power transmission systems. These factors have helped Brevini reducers replace conventional parallel axis reducers in many applications.
