Fully sealed GB12 gearbox
Parvalux EMD, a UK motor manufacturer, has launched a fully sealed version of the GB12 square-framed, worm-wheel gearbox.
In preventing contamination of the gears and housing by the ingress of fluids or particulates, the completely sealed design facilitates an estimated life expectancy of more than double that of similar half-seal worm and wheel designs.
The unit comes with a choice of nine standard DC commutated permanent magnet motors from the company's EMD application range or it can be customised to fit any one of Parvalux's other standard AC or DC motor products.
Features include: a maximum continuous torque of 45Nm; a choice of six reduction ratios (12.5:1, 25:1, 30:1, 50:1, 60:1 or 75:1); a composite or phosphor-bronze gear; an ingress protection rating of IP65; a steel output shaft diameter of up to 25mm (single or double); a two-year parts warranty; a sealed aluminium housing; and a black finish option.
The GB12 shares the same dimensions and fixings as the EMD-GB4 unit, designed originally for wheelchair and golf trolley applications, but is now used in a variety of other applications throughout the mobility, leisure and industrial sectors.
Customers seeking to replace old GB4 motor-gearbox units are being encouraged to consider a GB12 solution for extended reliability.
Parvalux has launched a solid machine prototyping service designed to ensure that a ‘proof of concept’ of a geared motor can be delivered to a customer within a very short lead time.
Parvalux EMD, a UK fractional horsepower motor manufacturer, has announced a major clearance of excess and surplus stock via a new online web store facility.
The German version of Parvalux's 2009 DC brushless catalogue is complemented by the Parvalux website, which features dedicated content for Austria and Germany.
Parvalux has announced a product information service, named Parvalux Update.
