New gearbox assembly line
Baldor now offers European customers a fast-turnaround gearbox assembly service. The company has commissioned a dedicated assembly line at its UK manufacturing facility in Bristol, capable of building a wide range of models and sizes from the popular Dodge Quantis family of high efficiency gearboxes and gearmotors. The assembly service enables OEMs, system integrators and system maintainers to obtain custom-configured power transmission products within days. The new service is likely to prove especially attractive to machine builders operating just-in-time manufacturing processes.
The Dodge Quantis family of gearboxes and gearmotors are based on a modular design concept to facilitate the implementation of custom configurations. These products are used for a wide variety of industrial applications, including conveying, pumping, mixing, winding and extruding machines. Baldor is now stocking all necessary components to assemble Dodge Quantis in-line helical (ILH) and right-angle helical bevel (RHB) speed reducers and gearmotors, in any case size from 38 to 108. The range includes the new Quantis Gold B14/C-face gearmotor, which is the most energy efficient package available in the industry.
Quantis ILH series speed reducers offer a choice of foot or output flange mountings, are available in double or triple ratios, and have an efficiency of up to 98.5 percent per stage. The RHB series right-angle speed reducers offer shaft-mount, foot or output flange mounting, triple ratios, and have an efficiency of 95 percent per stage. Both series are suitable for B14/C-face, separate or integral gearmotor use, feature a clamp-collar design, and employ spring-loaded nitrile rubber bearing seals. The RHB series speed reducers also offer the option of tapered hollow bores and twin-tapered bushings.
According to Baldor UK’s Marketing Director, Mark Crocker, “We can now assemble a wide range of IEC metric and NEMA speed reducers and gearmotors here in Bristol, to accommodate customers serving both the European and American markets. We also offer an exceptionally wide choice of DC and AC motors in our gearmotors – for the three-phase AC models we are standardising on our latest IEC IE3 rated (CEMEC EFF1+) motors, which provide unprecedented energy efficiency and are ideal counterparts to our Quantis product line. European customers can now obtain fast delivery of a ‘Gold’ standard motor and gearbox combination using just a single part number.”
