TOL-O-MATIC, represented in Australia by Pneumatic Products , has announced that its Slide-Rite gearboxes are now offered in 3:2 and 2:1 gear ratios, and metric versions in 1:1 ratios.
The slide-through shafting allows the device to slide axially along keyed shafts in either direction, limited only by the length of the keyway. This type of floating design allows for easy installation and fast changeover.
Slide-Rite Gearboxes also maintain perfect alignment, eliminating the need for chain sprocket drives and additional adjustments required for chain drive applications.
Slide-Rite gearboxes feature a hard coated aluminum case and hardened alloy steel bearings and gears for high torque performance, greater efficiency, and long life.
The one-piece housing provides leak-proof performance, protects inner components from contaminants, and is prelubricated for trouble-free service. The gearboxes are capable of input speeds up to 1200rpm with only 1 degree of backlash on reversal of input.
Slide-Rite 3:2 and 2:1 gearboxes are available in bore sizes from 3/4 to 1-1/4 inches. Metric 1:1 models are available in full and compact sizes with bores ranging from 12 to 30mm.
For applications in harsh environments, Tol-O-Matic also offers the corrosion-resistant Slide-Rite CR model that features electroless nickel-plating on all exposed components.
