New High-Performance Gearmotor Delivers Twice The Torque Of Similar Motor/Gearhead Combinations


Bodine Electric Company announced it has developed an extra-rugged line of variable speed AC inverter-duty and permanent magnet DC gearmotors, the type CG gearmotor.

While some competitors build gearheads and motors of this frame-size as separate components, the CG gearhead was developed specifically for the Bodine’s most powerful electric motors, the 48R-AC inverter-duty, and 42A permanent magnet DC motors. This integral gearmotor design allows the CG to deliver up to 1,000 lb-in. of torque, which is nearly twice the torque of any previous Bodine product.

Almost every component of the CG gearmotor was designed for higher than usual performance. The motor and gearhead are assembled as an integral unit, so the possibility of leaks at the motor-gearhead seal, or misalignment between motor and gearhead is eliminated. The new CG gearhead features a 3-stage, selectively hardened gearing cluster, permanently lubricated with a special, high-performance lubricant. Its solid aluminum-cast body, and extra heavy-duty bearings and seals ensure that it will perform flawlessly, even in the toughest applications. Because the gearhead is unvented, the gearmotors can be mounted in virtually any position by means of its extra-wide face-mounting flange. The driveshaft, featuring a 1.0 inch diameter, is almost twice as large as those typically found in comparable products, it allows the CG gearmotors to deliver tremendous output torque to the load.

These rugged gearmotors are specifically designed for applications such as platform lifts, heavy-duty plant automation equipment, and other equipment where long life and high load capacity are critical.

According to Edmund Glueck, Manager of Product Development, this new gearmotor fills out the Bodine product line. “It’s the largest gearmotor Bodine has designed to date,” he said. “It was designed to deliver Bodine reliability to the most demanding applications.”
