SEW-EURODRIVE releases stainless steel helical gear reducers
Traditional single-worm reducers commonly found on processing equipment are inefficient and wear over time. Helical bevel gears have an infinite life, and are 50% more efficient than single worm gears. The new stainless steel speed reducers are new on the outside, but inside youll find the same high-quality gearing the industry has relied on for decades.
The shaft-mounted gear units are available with TorqLOC, SEW-EURODRIVES compact keyless hollow shaft mounting system. TorqLOC combines interchangeable bronze bushings and a stainless steel clamping ring for mounting onto various sized solid shafts. This eliminates the need for high tolerance machining of the shaft and ensures the reducer can be easily removed even after years of service in the harshest environments.
The RESF37 and KESA37 are available with NEMA C-face motor adapters, IEC adapters or as gearmotors. Other options include seals to provide IP69K protection and food grade oil. All shafts and hardware are high quality stainless steel as standard.
The new RESF37 and KESA37 stainless steel gearboxes from SEW-EURODRIVE are available with ratios up to 134.82 and 106.38:1 respectively. Both have an input power rating of up to 3 HP and an output torque rating of 1,770 lb-in.
