These units are well suited for small conveyors and material
handling applications. The motor is mounted to the speed reducer
via a mounting flange, eliminating the couplings or v-belts. Many
of the manufacturers utilize special motors that have a gear on
the shaft to provide a higher reduction. This helps the
manufacturer but sometimes can make motor replacement difficult.
In selecting a gearhead, output rpm is the most important
selection criteria. Secondly, torque requirement or workload is
also necessary. Finally, voltage and assembly are two factors to
consider when choosing a unit.
We will be happy to engineer a new drive solution or select a
replacement for you. Please take a look at our available
gearheads. If you don't see it, please call.
