Aluminium worm geared motors are compact and economic right angle drives with an adaptable mounting system and short lead times. Powers range from 90W to 2.2kW and output speeds 9 to 265 r/min. Standard models are fitted with 3 phase AC motors but alternatives of 1-phase, DC and brake motors are also available. These geared motors are sealed for life and maintenance free.
The efficiency of worm gearboxes, is relatively low at 50 to 80%. We recommend that for energy saving reasons these geared motors are used for intermittent drives. Where the drive is continuous consider the Lenze GKR bevel gearboxes with efficiency of about 96%.
