January 5, 2011 - A new, 28 page Zero-Max catalog of Adjustable Speed Drives, Right Angle Gear Drives, and Linear Actuators has been published. The brochure contains new product models, new technical application data, drawings, and photos for easy ordering.Zero-Max Adjustable Speed Drives may be used as a primary or secondary drive. They eliminate the need for expensive AC/DC drives or variable pitch drives. They provide speed control for inputs from ¼ to 1½ HP applications with output torque ratings from 12 through 200 in-lbs. They accept input speeds from 0-2000 rpm, allowing output speed changes to be made quickly and easily, whether the machine is running or idle. The new Micro Dial design feature provides accurate and repeatable speed settings. The drives are available with optional gearheads, motors and c-flange adapters.Crown two- and three-way right angle gear drives transmit power with quiet, dependable spiral bevel gears and non-magnetic stainless steel shafts. New photos and drawings are featured showing multiple mounting options. The drives have a fully enclosed design. Internal gears cannot get out of alignment, jam up or become contaminated by debris. Cast aluminum housings are designed for maximum strength and heat dissipation. These drives are available in many sizes and shaft configurations including squared, splined, extended, shortened and stepped. Applications include printing, packaging machines, off-highway vehicles and special machinery of all types.Converting rotary motion to linear travel and carrying loads at speeds to 70 inches per second, Roh’Lix actuators handle thrust rates between 5 and 200 lbs. They are a less costly option compared to ball screws. They also are easy to adjust by simply tightening or loosening the thrust adjustment screws on the top of the block. And when thrust setting is exceeded, the Roh’lix slips on the shaft until the source of the overload is corrected. Thereby providing overload protection if an obstruction is encountered in the system. Available in 5 different sizes from 5 to 200 lbs. thrust. Learn More
