The Shaft Mounted Speed Reducer, metric in design, provides a very convenient method of reducing speed, since it is mounted directly on the driven shaft instead of requiring foundations of its own. It eliminates the use of one, and sometimes two, flexible couplings and external belt take-up arrangements.
A torque-arm anchors the Reducer and provides quick, easy adjustment of the V-Belts by means of its turnbuckle.
The Speed Reducer is available in 08 different sizes, designated by the letters B through to J. The eight sizes may have anyone of three nominal gear ratios, 5: 1, 13: 1 and 20: 1. A very wide choice of final output speeds can be determined by the use of an appropriate input V -Belt drive. The units will normally be oil lubricated, but they are equally suitable for “lubricated for life” greases.
The following variants of SMSR are also available.
- Foot / Flange Mounting
- Motor Mounting
- Vertical Shaft Mounting
- Back Stop
