In this monthly recurring column we would like to put a transmission or related product into the spotlight, our GearTopper. In this way, we like to share our product knowledge with our readers. This edition we focus on bevel helical geared motors.
The power transmission market knows a wide variety of geared motors and gearboxes. One of the most popular geared motors nowadays is the bevel helical geared motor. Many applications which in the past were driven by an inline helical geared motor in combination with a coupling, chain or belt transmission are replaced by the shaft mounted bevel helical version. These 90 degrees shaft mounted geared motors have a high efficiency, a wide range of possible ratio’s and are very compact in design.
Most conveyor belts are today equipped with a bevel helical gearbox which are mounted with a torque arm to have the unit free from external forces.
The I.Mak IRK series are available with hollow shaft diameter from 30mm up to 120mm and can be ordered with a male input shaft, direct coupled electric motor and an IEC coupled e-motor with male/female connection or with a flexible coupling.
Next to this we have many options as ATEX certification, backstop function for conveyor solution, reinforced bearings of the output shaft, special coatings and many many more.
