AutomationDirect Adds Helical Gearboxes to IronHorse Line

Cumming, GA --- June 2, 2016 ... AutomationDirect's IronHorse line of motor products now includes helical gearboxes which provide quiet startup and smooth operation in applications such as conveyors, packaging machines, rotary tables, and more. Designed for use with 1Hp to 20Hp electric motors, IronHorse gearboxes reduce output speed while increasing torque.

IronHorse Helical gearboxes feature C-face and TC-face inputs, inline outputs, and are available in five frame sizes ranging from 56C up to 254/6TC with six nominal ratios of 5:1 to 60:1. Manufactured in an ISO9001-certified plant, the gearboxes are constructed of FC-20 cast iron one-piece housings, and feature a carbon steel shaft protected with shaft sleeves, as well as heat-treated and ground high-strength steel gears. An interior channel guides oil to directly and constantly lubricate heavy-duty bearings on the output shaft; double-lipped embedded oil seals prevent leakage. Mountable in most directions, the universally interchangeable compact design ensures easy OEM replacement.

IronHorse helical gearbox prices start at $360.00.
