Parallel shaft mounted helical gear motors and units

HIMMEL®parallel shaft mounted helical gear motors of the FZ series - two-stage and FD - three-stage are designed for a wide range of applications. Thanks to their high efficiency, they are suitable for a wide range of applications. Also known as flat motors, these are the same as a helical gear unit with a parallel offset of the output shaft and can therefore be integrated into a hollow shaft.

HIMMEL®Gear motors are designed and developed using a modular principle; the output shaft of the built-on motor serves as the mount for the first reduction stage, making the transmission very compact and suitable for installation where space is limited. No matter which HIMMEL®parallel shaft mounted helical gear motors you choose, you will always benefit from the right balance of performance and space-requirement.

HIMMEL®Gear motors can be supplied as an integrated unit or with an attached IEC standard motor. The gear motors you need are also available as ATEX variants upon request. Transmissions are available as foot, flange or shaft mounted and can be installed in any position using the relevant amount of lubricant. Our modular system for gear units provides a wide range of options (high gear ratios with best efficiency) so that you can always select a suitable drive for your needs and enjoy the associated cost savings.

HIMMEL®flat gear motors are also available as tandem gear units for very high gear ratios.

Electromagnetic brakes, backstops and rotational speed monitors can be installed. The design principle used for the gear motors ensures low noise and the minimal installation space makes them space-saving drive solutions.
