AutomationDirect's IronHorse line of motor products now includes helical gearboxes which provide quiet startup and smooth operation in applications such as conveyors, packaging machines, rotary tables, and more. Designed for use with 1 Hp to 20 Hp electric motors, IronHorse gearboxes reduce output speed while increasing torque. The gearboxes are constructed of FC-20 cast iron one-piece housings, and feature a carbon steel shaft protected with shaft sleeves, as well as heat-treated and ground high-strength steel gears. An interior channel guides oil to directly and constantly lubricate heavy-duty bearings on the output shaft; double-lipped embedded oil seals prevent leakage.
