Zero-Max Crown right-angle gear drives provide directional motion change
Zero-Max Crown right-angle gear drives are built to feature heat-treated AGMA Class 10 spiral bevel gears and non-magnetic stainless steel shafts. Zero-Max Crown gear drives feature hardened and ground ball bearings that are made to handle speeds up to 2,000 rpm in most operating environments. The internal gears are permanently mounted to the shafts with locking pins.
Zero-Max drives are hand-shimmed and hand-assembled. According to the company, the drives are pre-lubricated during assembly, then completely enclosed in an anodized aluminum housing. This design is engineered to ensure that internal gears stay permanently aligned, lubricated and free of contamination from outside debris.
Available in several sizes and models, they are designed for a range of horsepower, torque and shaft speed requirements. Standard two- and three-way models are available with 1:1 and 2:1 speed ratios in shaft diameter combinations of 3/8, 1/2, 5/8 and 3/4 inch.
