Parallel shaft geared motors are the modern versions of the co-axial geared motors. As a result of their compact & short design, they take up less space than helical geared motors. Parallel shaft geared motors can either have a solid shaft or a hollow shaft as so called plug-on gear unit. This means that the geared motor is optimally integrated into the driven machine. Additional components viz. gear wheels or chain wheels are eliminated. Parallel shaft geared motors represent the space and weight saving solution within the range of coaxial geared motors. These geared motors are typically available in Foot or Flange mounting versions, with torque arm, solid & hollow shaft, hollow shaft with key connection or shrink disc.
Can be used even in narrow construction space
High gear ratios (plug in pinion)
Hollow shaft on both sides possible
Very energy efficient (efficiencies of 98% per stage)
Shelf access equipment
