Boston Gear Introduces New Worm Gear Reducer
A new 700 Series Conveyor Flange Adapter (CFA) is specifically designed for increased control and lower maintenance cost on material handling conveyors. The CFA700 is a direct mount worm gear speed reducer that works with a drive train and can streamline equipment design.
According to the companys press release, this product replaces the heavier chain drive mounted on many material handling conveyors and includes fewer moving parts.
The adapter is interchangeable with standard two and four-bolt mounted bearings and attaches to existing side rails.
Additional features include rubber mounting pads and bushing to limit vibration and noise and the patented PosiVent pressure equalization system to eliminate the need for synthetic lubricant.
The patent is pending on this series but a number of educational items are available.
