Bodine Electric Co. has introduced its new WX gearhead in conjunction with its upgraded 34B-frame brushless DC motor. The new WX gearmotors are designed to drive applications such as conveyor systems, packaging equipment, metering pumps, medical devices, commercial appliances, and solar-powered outdoor equipment. The new steel gearing is designed to AGMA 9 standards or higher, to assure the quiet operation that is expected. The synthetic lubricant in this new gearhead improves efficiency, and allows these gearmotors to operate in a wide temperature range.
