What can you expect from Vortex Worm Gear Speed Reducers?

Worm-Gear-Minimal-Oil-Leakage

Minimal oil leakage and longer seal life.

Our metal-reinforced, spring-loaded, double-lip oil seals ride on shafts with ground seal seats minimizing oil leakage and providing longer seal life.

Worm-Gear-Ground-Shafting

High strength shaft with ground bearing seats for longer bearing life.

Our one-piece shafts are made of heat-treated alloy steel for high strength. We use centerless ground bearing seats to provide ideal shaft fit and extend bearing life.

Worm-Gear-Protection-from-Wear-Corrosion

Protection from wear and corrosion.

Vortex uses cast iron housings and feature a highly corrosion-resistant finish and generous oil sump. These features dampen the effects of vibration and shock, protect from corrosive elements, and provide ideal lubrication throughout the life of the unit.

Worm-Gear-Compatibility

Compatibility.

We use a Cast Iron NEMA C input flange, making our reducers compatible with most off-the-shelf electric motors.

Worm-Gear-High-Load-Capacity

High load capacities.

Vortex uses tapered roller bearings on the output shaft to give our reducers high overhung and thrust load capacities.

Wormgear-Input-Tapered-Roller-Bearings-ArrangementOptions

Arrangement options.

Our X-Series reducers are available in a variety of input and output shaft configurations, making them easy to use in many applications.
