April 29, 2013 – New 80:1 and 100:1 ratios are now available in single reduction 700 Series worm gear speed reducers from Boston Gear. The new models provide the compact size of a single reduction reducer with a lower purchase price than traditional double reduction units, boasts the company. Units are backward-compatible with all 700 Series industry-standard mounting dimensions. These reducers are ideal for low-torque, light-duty material handling, food processing and packaging applications, adds Boston. The ratio reducers are available with projecting, quill or coupling input options. Hollow and solid (projecting) output options are also offered. Models are available with standard paint, BK/SBK coatings or stainless steel housings.
