IronHorse(TM) Hollow Shaft Gearboxes

April 17, 2009
AutomationDirect’s IronHorse worm gearbox line now includes hollow shaft models in four frame sizes, and six gear ratios from 5:1 to 60:1. 
Constructed of cast iron one-piece housings, hollow shaft worm gearboxes feature a C-flange input. Designed to change drive direction by 90 degrees, hollow shaft gearboxes are used when space is at a premium, such as for conveyors, or to simplify mechanical design. IronHorse gearboxes are mountable in any direction, except motor pointing up. Prices start at $169; the full line, available for same-day shipping, is backed by a one-year warranty.
