Gearboxes & Air Motors

Gearboxes are a fundamental component of many drive systems. With a wide range of designs and configurations available, gearboxes can be used to increase torque, reduce or increase speed, reverse rotation, or change the direction of the driveshaft. As with any drive component, the quality of the gearbox you use drastically affects mechanical performance and longevity.

Hypoid GearboxHypoid Gearboxes

Our newest gearbox in the Ondrives.US product line delivers high-efficiency results in smaller capacity motors. These gearboxes handle heavier load transmission, achieve higher gear ratios, and have an incredibly quiet operation.
 

Air Motor | Ondrives.US

Air Motors

Air motors are more convenient and easier to use compared to other power-generating motors. Our piston air motors have a low-maintenance design, resist corrosion, and are compatible with                       flammable environments, underwater installation, and applications where electromagnetic                               interference is a design concern.

Wormwheel Gearboxes | Ondrives.USWormwheel Gearboxes

Compact right angle wormwheel speed reducers produce an output at 90° from the input. 10 space-saving frame sizes are available, with output torques as high as 420Nm.

 

Crossed Axis Gearboxes | Ondrives.USCrossed Axis Gearboxes

Crossed axis gear drives produce an output at 90° from the input. These gearboxes feature anodized aluminum housings and hardened alloy steel input gears for durability in challenging applications. Available with gear ratios from 1:1 to 40:1 and torque values up to 62Nm.

 

Right Angle Bevel Gearboxes | Ondrives.USRight Angle Bevel Gearboxes

Our Bevel T right angle speed reducers feature a shaft that passes through both sides in the form of a “T”. This solid thru-shaft rotates at both ends simultaneously. Also available with a single output shaft. Available in ratios from 1:1 to 24:1.

 

Counter Rotating Bevel Gearboxes | Ondrives.USCounter Rotating Bevel Gearboxes

Our counter-rotating T-style bevel gearboxes feature two output shafts on the same axis and an input shaft at 90° from both; the output shafts rotate in opposite directions.

 

Spur Gear Reducers | Ondrives.USSpur Gear Reducers

Also known as parallel shaft gearboxes, spur gear reducer boxes provide an output that is parallel to the direction of the input shaft. Available in gear ratios from 2:1 to 7:1 with torque output up to 850Nm.


 

In-Line Gearboxes | Ondrives.USInline Gearboxes

Inline reducer gearboxes provide an output that continues in the same direction and on the same plane as the input. We offer a wide range of inline reducers, including spur, Encoder,                               low-backlash taper, speed increasers, and more. Available in ratios up to 3600:1.

 

Rack and Pinion Actuators | Ondrives.USRack & Pinion Actuator Gearboxes

Rack and pinion actuator gearboxes convert rotational motion into linear motion, or vice versa. Our compact designs provide short strokes from 10mm to 30mm.

 

Planetary and motorized gearboxesPlanetary & Motorized Gearboxes

Our motorized planetary reducers are small, inline devices designed for low backlash performance in speeds up to 3,000 RPM. Slim, compact footprints make them ideal for                                   applications where space is limited.

 

Miniature Gearboxes | Ondrives.USMiniature Gearboxes

Many of our other gear reducer styles are available in miniature versions. These ultra-compact gearboxes are precision engineered for superior performance in tight spaces and small-scale                           applications.

 

Modified and Custom Gearbox and Air Motor Designs

A wide variety of standard gearboxes and motors makes it easy to find a solution for almost any application. With an in-house team of application engineers, we can also modify or customize any of our standard products to meet your unique specifications. Our team can also reverse engineer obsolete gearboxes or help you find a comparable gearbox within our product line. Contact our application engineers to discuss your custom gearbox application.
