Falk Introduces New High-Efficiency Gearmotor
A new gearmotor, named the Ultramite™ for its high efficiency and compact size, has been introduced by the Falk Corporation. The Ultramite gearmotor is ideal for a wide range of general purpose, factory and plant low hp/kW power transmission applications. Substitutions, drop-in replacement and retrofits are reportedly made easier due to the Ultramite gearmotor's base-mounted design that has a footprint that matches those of other major manufacturers. A simple, plug-in and bolt-on design makes this new drive compatible with standard, off-the-shelf NMA and IEC-C face motors permitting the use of customer-preferred motor brands.
The Ultramite gearmotor is available in several sizes in the .25 kW (.25 hp) to 15 kW (20 hp) power range and features hardened, helical gearing for energy efficiency over worm gear drives.
Falk's new gearmotor is also available in flange-mounted housings for additional flexibility. The Ultramite gearmotor is available locally virtually anywhere in the world via Falk's global distribution network.
