IronHorse adds aluminium worm gearboxes
AutomationDirect has expanded its mechanical power transmission product line to include aluminum worm gearboxes in five frame sizes, with gear ratios from 10:1 to 100:1.
They feature a C-flange input and hardened hollow-bore output shafts and come in 30- to 75-mm box sizes with double-lipped embedded oil seals to prevent leakage.
Epoxy paint inside and outside the reducer prevents corrosion, and double bearing sets are on both shaft ends.
They change drive direction by 90 degrees; they’re mountable in any direction, except motor pointing up; and they do not have vent plugs or breathers.
These IronHorse worm gearboxes are used with electric motors for reducing output speed, increasing torque, changing drive direction, or running two loads from one motor in applications such as conveyors, packaging machines and rotary tables.
Options include single and double output shafts, output flanges, torque arms and output covers.
