They’re a fraction of their former selves. SEW-Eurodrive has extended its line of Spiroplan right-angle, low-horsepower gearmotors to meet the requirements of fractional horsepower applications. Available as either a gearmotor or brakemotor, the compact and lightweight Spiroplan W10 gear unit was developed for applications requiring smooth-running, low-horsepower gearing, such as small conveyors, hoists and pumps, as a replacement for low-horsepower worm drives. This low-maintenance unit is available in 12 gear ratios from 8:1 to 75:1, and is driven optionally by either a 90-W (0.12-hp) or 120-W (0.16-hp) single- or three-phase motor, at torques up to 25 Nm (220 in.-lb). Output speeds are from 17 rpm to 152 rpm.
