Baldor UK has released a new range of right-angle gearmotors featuring an internal oil expansion chamber, eliminating the breather vent on conventional units that can restrict the choice of mounting position. Additionally, this eliminates the possibility of airborne contaminant and moisture ingress, which shortens gear life.
The new GC and GP Series of single-reduction ratio gearmotors offer a choice of gear styles with ratios from 5:1 to 3600:1, in motor powers ranging from 0.03 to 0.37kW, and in either AC and DC ratings.
Further improvements in the new product range include induction-hardened and ground worms for extended life and load capacity, and the use of high-performance Mobil synthetic SHC 634 oil bath lubrication.
Baldor’s new gearmotors are suited to a variety of applications in equipment such as conveyors, material handling, packaging and machine tools.
