Boston Gear Introduces New Worm Gear Reducer
According to the companys press release, this product replaces the heavier chain drive mounted on many material handling conveyors and includes fewer moving parts.
The adapter is interchangeable with standard two and four-bolt mounted bearings and attaches to existing side rails.
Additional features include rubber mounting pads and bushing to limit vibration and noise and the patented PosiVent pressure equalization system to eliminate the need for synthetic lubricant.
The patent is pending on this series but a number of educational items are available.
