SIMOGEAR Helical Gear Motors

Helical gear motors - cut

Helical geared motors are the most conventional and cost-effective solution for many drive applications. Helical gear units are coaxial, where the gear unit output shaft is in line with the motor shaft. A solid shaft is always used as output shaft. Additional components – e.g. gear wheels or chain wheels – to transfer the force to the driven load are therefore required. Solutions utilizing helical geared motors are capable of an extremely variable speed range.

SIMOGEAR  helical geared motors are available for the power range up to 20 HP (15 kW) and rated gear unit torques up to 5,900 ft-lb (8,000 Nm).
