Helical Gears
  • SGR Series Helical Gearmotor
    Our helical gearmotors achieve a very high torque density and long service life. These gearmotors are specially designed for great performance and reliability. and offered in a wide range of torques and gear ratios are offered to best fit the needs of your applications. These gearmotors are compatible with many critical mechanical systems.

    Power ratings from 0.05 to 433 HP
    Ratios from 1.3 to 23,401
    Output torques to 490,641 lb-in

    Typical applications: Steel mills, paper mills, conveyors, waste water treatment
  • SGK Series Helical Bevel Gearmotor
    Each helical bevel gearmotor is designed for wear-free operation, allowing for a long service life. These gearmotors feature gear efficiencies of more than 90% in both directions of rotation within the system. As with other Superior Gearbox Company products, these gearmotors are also very compact and they boast a high power density, to better meet the needs of your machinery. These products are also resilient enough to be operated in a wide range of ambient temperatures and are designed to work in many mechanical applications, while operating at high levels of efficiency.

    Power ratings from 0.05 to 615 HP
    Ratios from 3.98:1 to 24,353:1
    Output torques to 442,500 lb-in

    Typical applications: Conveyors, material handling, steel mills, paper mills.
  • SGF Parallel Shaft Gearmotors
    Parallel shaft gearmotors are designed for use in a variety of mechanical systems such as industrial conveyors, material handlers, steel mills, and more. Each unit is designed to be slim and compact to ensure the best fit in many critical spaces that demand precision positioning and quality.

    Power ratings from 0.05 to 336 HP
    Ratios from 3.77 to 29,211
    Output torques to 159,300 lb-in

    Typical applications: Conveyors, material handling, steel mills, paper mills.
  • SGS Series Helical Worm Gearmotor
    The SGS Series Helical Worm Gearmotor utilize an helical/helical-worm combination, making these units more efficient than normal helical-worm gear units. Due to their outstanding efficiency, these drives can be used in every industrial sector and tailored to individual torque and speed requirements. The reduction ratios afforded by the helical-worm gear stage and the low noise levels during operation make these gearmotors ideal low-cost solutions for simple applications.

    Power ratings from 0.05 to 46 HP
    Ratios from 3.97 to 33,818
    Output torques to 35,400 lb-in

    Typical applications: Drives in theater applications, adjustment drives, presses, rotary tables, and corner transfer units.
