IronHorse cast iron worm gearboxes (worm gear speed reducers) are mechanical power transmission components that can drive a load at a reduced fixed ratio of the motor speed. Output torque is increased by that same ratio, while horsepower is unchanged (less efficiency losses).
Mounting: IronHorse gearboxes utilize C-face mounting interfaces for C-face motors
Bases: Worm gear reducer mounting bases are also available for ease of installation
Worm gearboxes (worm gear speed reducers) contain a worm-type gear on the input shaft,
a worm-type mating gear on the output shaft and change drive direction.
IronHorse cast iron worm gearboxes are mechanical power
transmission drive components that can drive a load at a reduced
fixed ratio of the motor speed. The output torque is also increased
by the same ratio, while the horsepower remains the same (less
efficiency losses). A 10:1 gearbox outputs approximately the same
motor output horsepower with motor speed divided by 10 and motor
torque multiplied by 10. Similar performance is provided by other
AutomationDirect's IronHorse® worm
gearboxes are manufactured in an ISO9001 certified plant by one of
the leading worm gear reducer manufacturers in the world today.
Only the highest quality materials are tested, certified, and used
in the manufacturing process. Strict adherence to and compliance
with the toughest international and U.S. testing standards and
manufacturing procedures assure you the highest quality products.
