Industry demands the reduction of hodge-podge of gearboxes, improvement of system efficiency, stoppage of the leaks, and the excessive downtime that is drowning the business! Most conveyor systems incorporate many different vendors of inefficient worm gears that kill system efficiency, leak oil, and are a maintenance nightmare. If gearbox redundancy can be eliminated, efficiency would be improved and operating profits would be increased.
By upgrading to a helical-bevel gear drive that is over 90% efficient, paired with a high efficient motor, system efficiencies would increase by over 40%. Longer life expectancy than that of standard worm gearing could be realized due to less heat generation. Rapid payback would be achieved in less than a year. The high efficiency gear drive is dimensionally interchangeable to up to 11 sizes of worm drives for inventory consolidation, saving more money.
