March 14, 2018 - AutomationDirect's IronHorse worm gearbox line now includes left hand shaft models in four frame sizes, and six gear ratios from 5:1 to 60:1. IronHorse cast iron worm gearboxes (worm gear speed reducers) are mechanical power transmission drive components that can drive a load at a reduced fixed ratio of the motor speed.
Constructed of cast iron one-piece housings, the worm gearboxes feature a C-flange input. Designed to change drive direction by 90 degrees and to increase torque output, worm gearboxes are used when space is at a premium, such as for conveyors, or mechanical design. IronHorse gearboxes are mountable in any direction, except motor pointing up.
In business since 1994, AutomationDirect is a distributor offering thousands of industrial automation products for electrical control systems, including PLCs, operator interfaces, AC drives, motors, stepper systems, sensors, motor controls, enclosures and more.
