SIMOGEAR Parallel Shaft Gear Motors

parallel shaft gear motor

Parallel shaft geared motors are the modern version of coaxial geared motors. As a result of their compact and short design, they take up less space than helical geared motors. Parallel shaft geared motors can either have a solid shaft - or alternatively a hollow shaft as so-called plug-on gear unit. This means that the geared motor is optimally integrated into the driven machine. Additional components - e.g. such as gear wheels or chain wheels - to transmit the force to the driven machine are eliminated. Parallel shaft geared motors represent the space and weight-saving solution within the range of coaxial geared motors.

SIMOGEAR  parallel shaft 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).
