Maintenance Intensive Worm Gear Reducers

Material Handling Innovation

Energy Improvements and Inventory Reduced 

Our customer needed an alternative to its continuous purchasing and stocking of eight different gearbox ratings at a cost of $300 to $800 each. The company had maintenance-intensive worm gear reducers that often leaked and failed, causing excessive plant downtime.

With energy prices rising, implementing warehouse modifications can mean improved efficiencies and big savings.

High Efficiency Solutions and Systems 

We have been providing solutions for more than 75 years to the material handling industry. Our experience includes state-of-the-art conveyor components, industry leading variable speed motors, and high efficiency gearing. Our AC drives and motors are “Performance Matched“ for unparalleled dependability.

To modernize its conveyor system as efficiently as possible, our customer selected the IronMan® E Series high efficiency gear reducers from Grove Gear. By installing gear reducers designed specifically for the facility’s needs, our customer could help bring the 3.75-mile conveyor system back on track.

The IronMan E Series gear reducers provide a dramatic 60% more torque than the previously installed reducers, and use optional mounting bases and existing bolt patterns to fit without having to modify the conveyor.

Value Proposition

We have a developed reputation for conservative motor designs, highly engineered motion control, and power transmission products used in a vast array of commercial and industrial applications around the globe.

Market leading solutions that reduce energy consumption, improve process throughput, provide sustainability, increase productivity, and uptime are at the heart of what drives our world.

The Blue Chip Series® XRI® family motors have led the motor industry for over 30 years in “Mission Critical” applications where NEMA Premium® IE3 efficiencies and severe duty construction are required.

BlackMAX® and BlueMAX® inverter duty motors with the patented MAXGUARD® insulation system has stood the test of time as the choice of the design engineer when specifying variable speed motors for the most demanding applications. With unlimited lead length and protection against the potential destructive forces associated with the high switching frequencies of today’s PWM drives, you can be assured of reliable and dependable performance year after year.

Today, we build on our 100-year-old legacy of innovative and efficient designs by the joining of magnetics, motors, and controls into a single leading technology. This allows for unparalleled power densities, unprecedented performance, and unmatched efficiencies.

SyMAX® and NovaMAX™ PMAC radial flux motors allow you to imagine and implement possibilities that no conventional induction motor or competing variable speed technology can provide in a hoist of commercial and industrial applications.

UlteMAX™ PMAC axial flux motors usher in a new generation of integrated motors and controls that reduce weight and size and simplify wiring.  These high torque, high performance integrated packages are ideal solutions in air moving, pumping and commercial HVAC applications.

High efficiency mechanical solutions are at the cutting edge of what we do best.  We are recognized for producing reliable solutions that solve problems in critical applications where performance is crucial.  
System Plast is a world leader in conveyor systems and components that reduce energy consumption, improve sustainability, and increase throughput in material handling, bottling, and conveyors.
