Baldor Electric Company: Right-angle gearmotors
Baldor Electric (Fort Smith, AR) redesigned its line of right-angle gearmotors to include an internal expansion chamber and Mobil synthetic SHC 634 oil bath lubrication.
With the internal expansion chamber there is no need for a vent because the chamber absorbs the pressure caused by the expanding oil. Other improvements include induction-hardened and ground worm gears for increased life and load capacity and new casting designs which eliminate porosity leaks reduce weight and increase strength. Motors are available in a range of ratios and styles from ½5 HP through ½ HP in both AC and DC ratings.
