Shaft Mounted Helical gear units off the shelf

Posted: Wednesday 19th March 2008

Rapid availability is a major requirement in many industries when there is a machine breakdown. Each minute of lost production costing heavily in both revenue and reputation.

Nowhere is this more true than in the UK’s extractive industries, where the belt driven shaft mounted helical gear unit is a popular gearbox choice.

Renold Gears’ SMXtra gear unit has long been regarded as a robust, reliable unit and “instant availability” has now been added to the list of associated benefits.

Manufactured in the UK at its factory in North Manchester, the SMXtra unit is available in 12 sizes in parallel bore with a complete range of bushes in 5mm increments from 20mm to 190mm. A unique taper lock securing and release system is also available which can be fitted on either side of the unit, making the SMXtra one of the easiest units on the market to fit and remove.

Being shaft mounted and secured with a torque arm rather than a base mounted unit allows trouble free interchangeability with other, less available ranges.

The new “off the shelf” stock is available on preferred sizes and ratios in both parallel and taper bore options for immediate despatch from the Manchester factory, or from strategic locations throughout the UK via Renold’s Distributor network.
