Plymouth, Minn. – Crown right-angle gear drives from Zero-Max Inc. feature heat-treated AGMA Class 10 spiral bevel gears and non-magnetic stainless steel shafts providing long-term, maintenance-free operation.
Zero-Max Crown gear drives feature long-life, precision hardened and ground ball bearings handling speeds up to 2,000 rpm in most operating environments. The internal gears are permanently mounted to the shafts with locking pins. This provides a resilient and durable connection for use in heavy load applications while requiring no maintenance.
Zero-Max ensures their drives are predictably smooth operating, and similar model sizes have identical performance characteristics when designed into multiple drive setups. To accomplish this, Zero-Max drives are hand-shimmed and hand-assembled for perfect bearing and gear alignment. The drives are pre-lubricated during assembly, then completely enclosed in a heavy-duty anodized aluminum housing. This design ensures that internal gears stay permanently aligned, lubricated and free of contamination from outside debris.
Zero-Max Crown drives are ideal for a wide range of machine applications including food processing, packaging and material handling systems. Available in many sizes and models, they are ideal for a wide 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.
