Original Press Release:
'U-Shaped' Gearmotor Provides High Torque in a Compact Package
Bodine Electric Company introduces built-to-order "U-shaped" gearmotors for OEM applications. The new, type -HG gearhead provides flexible mounting and high torque in a small package. Typical applications include conveyor systems, food processing equipment, and factory automation.
The type -HG gearmotors are available with Bodine's 42R AC induction, 33A permanent magnet DC, and 34B brushless DC motors. This new gearmotor design utilizes three-stages of gearing, providing gear ratios from 6:1 to 110:1. The gearmotor produces up to 1000 lb-in. continuous torque and outputs from 3 to 23 RPM. For increased radial load capacity and long life, the HG gearheads are unvented with needle bearings for the intermediate gear stages, and large ball bearings on the output shaft. They also feature selectively hardened helical and spur gearing for quietness and high output-to-size ratio. The gearmotors are offered with a variety of built-to-order shaft options, including single, double or hollow shaft configurations. Hollow shaft units can be connected directly to the driven load, which saves space and eliminates unnecessary parts that are bulky and present alignment issues. Type HG, integral gearmotors can be face-mounted from either side for maximum flexibility in mounting configurations.
Bodine Electric Company is celebrating its 100th anniversary of manufacturing fractional horsepower electric motors in 2005. Still family owned, Bodine is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, and offers a wide range of more than 850 stock motors and gearmotors worldwide, including AC, DC, and Brushless DC. Each drive is complemented by system-matched Bodine motion controls. Bodine also offers built-to-order services with engineering support for concurrent product development. All items are available from a strategically located network of Bodine MotionPRO Sales Reps & Authorized Distributors worldwide.
