Bodine Electric Company offers many built-to-order (custom) configurations of stock gearmotors. The type "3RD" gearmotor is designed for OEM applications that require very slow rotation and high torque. Typical applications include conveyor systems, food processing equipment, medical equipment and factory automation.
The "3RD" gearmotors are available with Bodine's type 30R AC induction (fixed- and variable-speed), 24A permanent magnet DC, and 22B brushless DC motors. The double-reduction design provides gear ratios from 200:1 up to 3600:1, allowing a relatively small motor to produce up to 150 lb-in. torque. The gearheads are offered with outputs ranging from 0.4 to 12.5 RPM. The 3RD gearhead is unvented with bronze and hardened steel worm gears for low maintenance and long life.
The gearmotor can be customized and is offered with a variety of built-to-order shaft options, including single, double or hollow shaft configurations. Hollow shaft units can be connected directly to the driven load, which saves space and eliminates unnecessary parts that are bulky and present alignment issues. The gearhousing was designed for maximum flexibility. These gearmotors can be face-mounted on the drive-shaft side, or from the bottom of the gearhead.
