Inching-drive option

An inching drive option is now available for the Falk V-Class gear drive. The drives are designed for maximum uptime and performance. The inching drive will let the gear drive offer full-load inching operation, which allows slow-speed operation of equipment for inspection and maintenance. It can also be run continuously to prevent freeze-up of components in harsh and cold-weather environments.

The inching drive uses a Falk Ultramite gear drive, mounted to the main gear drive unit coupled via an overrunning clutch. This allows the inching drive to be automatically disengaged when the main motor is operating. The gear drive features the latest advances in materials technology, engineering design, and manufacturing processes.
