Right Angle Gear Drives

"Lubricated for life is one of many features of Zero-Max Crown Right Angle Gear Drives," said Zero-Max spokesperson. The drives are a suitable for motion system designers looking for a smooth operating, quiet right angle gear drive.

Lubricated for life with Beacon 325 premium grade grease, Zero-Max Crown drives feature heat treated AGMA Class 10 spiral bevel gears. This combination of bearing design and lubrication formulation helps provide long-term, maintenance-free operation for high performance industrial applications. The drives feature long-life, precision hardened and ground ball bearings handling speeds up to 2,000 RPM in most operating environments. The internal gears are permanently mounted to the shafts with the use of a press-fit and locking pins. This provides a resilient and durable connection for use in heavy load applications while requiring no maintenance.

Lubrication with Beacon 325 grease provides increased performance in temperature ranges from -50 °C to +120 °C without evaporation. This is especially important in sealed for life systems using motors, generators and similar equipment in industrial applications.

"Zero-Max ensures its drives are predictably smooth operating, and similar model sizes have identical performance characteristics when designed into multiple drive set-ups," said the spokesperson. "To accomplish this, Zero-Max drives are precision assembled for perfect bearing and gear alignment. The drives are pre-lubricated during assembly, then completely enclosed in a heavy-duty anodized aluminum housing. This design ensures that internal gears stay permanently aligned, lubricated and free of contamination from outside debris."

Zero-Max Crown drives are suitable for a wide range of machine applications including food, packaging and material handling systems. Available in many sizes and models, they are ideal for a wide range of horsepower, torque and shaft speed requirements. Standard two- and three-way models are available with 1:1 and 2:1 speed ratios in shaft diameter combinations of 3/8", 1/2", 5/8" and 3/4".
