August 15, 2018 – Zero-Max introduced Zero-Max Crown Right Angle Gear Drives. Motion system designers looking for a right angle gear drive will find Zero-Max Crown Gear Drives a suitable choice.
Lubricated for life with Beacon 325 premium grade grease, Zero-Max Crown drives feature heat treated AGMA Class 10 spiral bevel gears. This combination of bearing design and lubrication formulation ensures maintenance free operation for industrial applications. The drives feature precision hardened and ground ball bearings handling speeds up to 2000 rpm in most operating environments. The internal gears are permanently mounted to the shafts with the use of a press-fit and locking pins. This provides a connection for use in heavy load applications.
Lubrication with Beacon 325 grease ensures performance in temperature ranges from -50° C to +120° C without evaporation. This is especially important in sealed for life systems using motors, generators and similar equipment in industrial applications.
Zero-Max drives are assembled for bearing and gear alignment. The drives are pre-lubricated during assembly, then enclosed in an anodized aluminum housing.
Zero-Max Crown drives are intended for a range of machine applications including food processing, packaging and material handling systems. Available in many sizes and models, they are ideal for a wide range of horsepower, torque and shaft speed requirements. Standard two and three way models are available with 1:1 and 2:1 speed ratios in shaft diameter combinations of 3/8, 1/2, 5/8 and 3/4 inch.
