Adjustable-speed and right-angle drives

A new, 28-page catalog covers adjustable-speed drives, right-angle gear drives, and linear actuators.

Adjustable-speed drives can be used as a primary or secondary drive and eliminate the need for expensive ac/dc drives or variable-pitch drives. The drives accept input speeds from 0 to 2,000 rpm for quick and easy output speed changes, whether the machine is running or idle. A new Micro Dial design feature provides accurate and repeatable speed settings.

Crown two and three-way rightangle gear drives transmit power using spiral-bevel gears and nonmagnetic stainless steel shafts. The drive’s fully enclosed cast-aluminum housing prevents internal gears from getting out of alignment, jamming up, or becoming contaminated by debris, and offers maximum heat dissipation. These drives are available in many sizes and shaft configurations including squared, splined, extended, shortened and stepped. Applications include printing, packaging machines, off-highway vehicles and special machinery of all types.
