The Genat and Wood brand is one of the few that are manufactured to suite any brand of motor that has a universal IEC Fitment. Which means you can easily unbolt the existing motor, unplug it, plug in a new one, bolt it on and you are ready to run.
Some of the older style Genat and Wood branded gearheads have the ‘old style’ input which uses and “R” adaptor and internal draw bolt which holds the electric motor’s shaft to the gearbox input shaft.
Incorporated in the design is the utilisation of standard shaft and flange mounted motors to AS 1360 PHO & IEC 72 + 34.1
Amiga offer the service of interchanging the ‘old style’ input to the ‘new style’ input for user ease.
The gearboxes can also be fitted with brake, 2 speed, single phase and D.C. motors. Additional options such as clutch/brake, anti run back bearings, external cooling fans are available, contact Amiga Engineering for more information. The flexibility of design enables motor/gearbox units to be changed in kW rating if necessary provided the maximum torque capacity of the gearbox is not exceeded.
By incorporating standard metric flange mount motors in our design, this enables rapid change if required keeping down time to a minimum, and also permit the flexibility of fitting alternative client specified motor brands.
The bearings fitted to all units have been selected to match the output requirement of the gearbox. Sturdy tapered roller bearings are utilised in the majority of gearboxes, with preference to the Timken Tapered Roller, due to its superior load carrying capaCity and back up service throughout Australia, incorporating locally manufactured sizes where possible.
All castings are Red Oxide Zinc Chromate crank case sealed prior to final assembly and units are finished with a top coat of Genat & Wood Blue air drying enamel as standard. Specialised coatings eg: 2 pack epoxy, polyurethane or surface finish to partiCUlar specifications are available upon request.
Every Genat & Wood Geared Drive has a stainless steel nameplate fitted, contributing to corrosion resistance, enabling full details of gearbox to be identified at all times.
In addition to the standard features on the Genat & Wood gearbox, the following options are also available upon request.
Our in house manufacturing facility offers you the flexibility of special requirements.
