New 1000 Lb-In Gearmotor From Bodine Electric

(Chicago, IL - March 15, 2002...) Bodine Electric Company's new 42A-CG gearmotor has a maximum continuous output rating of 1050 lb-in, more than double the rating of the largest gearmotor previously available from Bodine. The gearmotor is ideal for applications that require tremendous torque from a small package.

The power behind the new gearmotor is Bodine's venerable 42A DC motor, which has been the first choice of industrial OEMs since the 1970's. Constantly improved over the years by taking advantage of the latest technology, the 42A motor now features Class F insulation on the armature windings to withstand high operating temperatures without sacrificing long life. Bodine's unique constant force spring design on the brush holders provides longer brush life than any other design on the market.

The new CG gear reducer unleashes the full potential of Bodine's 42A motor. The 42A-CG combination produces up to 1050 lb-in torque. The 3-stage gearing cluster of selectively hardened helical gears is permanently lubricated with synthetic grease. The unvented gear reducer can be mounted in virtually any position, by means of its integral face-mounting flange, with no lubricant leakage. A huge 1-1/8" diameter driveshaft, with keyway, delivers the tremendous output torque to the load. Like all Bodine products, the 42A-CG will last longer in a
demanding application than any comparable product.

Bodine Electric (, since 1905, is the leading North American designer and manufacturer of quality fractional horsepower electric motors and controls. Its comprehensive product line includes AC, DC and brushless DC motors, gearmotors and electronic motion controls for industrial OEM applications.
