Sumitomo has introduced the Hyponic quill right angle reducer, designed for motor specification flexibility. The device offers hypoid gear technology, maintenance- free grease lubrication, and a compact modular housing combined with an improved C-face quill input and anti-microbial DuPont Alesta AM powder coat finish. This NSF Standard 51 coating continuously inhibits bacteria, mould and fungus growth on almost any surface, even those with light scratches and abrasions. Ratio ranges of 5:1 through 1,440:1, NEMA motor frame sizes 56C through 182TC and up to 13,000 in.-lb torque give the product good flexibility for right-angle applications. Sumitomo
