Gearing Solutions (Solon, OH) introduces its FlexFrame 5 HP face mounted speed reducer with patented adaptors which allow them to be used with either IEC or NEMA motors. This allows users to quickly switch or replace motors, interchange IEC and NEMA motors for export applications, add face, flange or foot mounts and use GS convertible shaft adaptors to match virtually any motor to any gearbox. Consisting of a face mounted speed reducer with a hollow shaft input, these new designs function as gearheads. Built on the proven Nu-Lobe gear design, they are available in standard ratios of 3:1, 4:1 and 5:1, making them ideal for a wide range of industrial and commercial applications. Other features include:
- Aluminum housings, making FlexFrame units up to 50% lighter with the smallest profile on the market, creating a premium weight to torque ratio (power density). This allows them to be used in cantilevered and over-center designs where heavier gearheads are not feasible.
- Shock load resistance, cost-effectiveness, and easy mounting.
