HIMMEL®-gear motors are used to drive low speed machines. They are used where desired output speeds cannot be economically achieved with conventional electric motors. The gearbox and motor are assembled into a sturdy and elegant unit. The gear units can be supplied as foot or flange-mounted and, with the appropriate amount of lubricant, can be installed in any position. Electromagnetic brakes, backstops and speed monitors can be added. The design principle of geared motors achieves low noise emissions and space-saving drive solutions due to the compact size of the design. The cast iron gearbox housing is stable, vibration-damping, and designed for continuous operation. Oil leakage or ingress of dust is prevented by radial shaft seals equipped with a dust lip. All gears are milled, scraped crowned or ground and surface hardened. Helical gear teeth achieve supreme running smoothness. The maximum permissible radial and axial forces must be observed.
