Bison VWDIR Line Expands
December 2, 2008—A right-angle AC gearmotor in six standard models is the latest product released in the Von Weise Drop-In Replacement gearmotor line from Bison Gear and Engineering Corp. The gearmotors have 1/12 horsepower or 62 watts dual voltage, dual frequency and single-phase permanent split capacitor electric motors.
The integral gear reducers use hardened steel worm gearing and cast iron output gears with ratios from 37:1 to 1,205:1. Fixed output speeds are from 40 to 1.5 rpm with continuous torque rating from 89 to 250 in-lbs. They are available with left, right or dual output shafts; they are reversible and have all-position foot mounting with overhung load capability of 100 lbs.
The VWDIR33 AC right-angle gearmotors are designed for commercial and industrial applications from food service equipment to welding positioners. U.L. and CSA recognition are standard.
"This is the tenth new Von Weise Drop-In Replacement Gearmotor we have introduced in the past three months, and there are more to come," says John Morehead, vice president, strategic planning and marketing for Bison Gear. "We're finding that OEM customers for these products are particularly interested in shortening their supply chain with dependable deliveries of a quality product. We're able to meet those requirements by manufacturing these gearmotors here in our St. Charles, Illinois facility to Bison's high quality standards to ensure reliable, long-life operation."
