DieQua to Launch Varvel Worm Speed Reducer Line
Although already available for close to a year for special projects, this worm speed reducer program will be official rolled out by DieQua during the first quarter of 2011. A new aluminum square body design, this reducer is designed, manufactured, and assembled by Varvel, a world class Italian manufacturer of power transmission gear products.
While a number of worm designs are now coming out of China, the quality and reliability has not yet caught up with the traditional Italian quality of worm gear manufacturing. Although still competitively priced, the Varvel worm has many features that provide performance enhancements for users of the product, which makes it a high value solution.
DieQua now has an inventory of gearboxes that include both inch or metric hollow outputs and and inch or metric standard shafts. Input adapters for either NEMA or IEC standard motors are also available. DieQua is also offering customization capabilities for stepper and hydraulic motors and other special designs, when the quantity makes it a viable possibility.
Sizes from 28 mm center distance to 110 mm center distances are offered in the new square design. Although not presently stocked, Varvel's previous round body design is available in the same sizes and up to 150 mm center distance. So, customers with existing Varvel reducers or those needing larger sizes can contact DieQua for service, as well.
Ratios of 5:1 to 100:1 are possible in a single stage. For higher ratios, input helical gear or primary worm modules are available as two stage solutions.
Whether you have a need for 1, 1,000, or 10,000, DieQua is prepared to help you satisfy your design needs for right angle worm speed reduction. Give us a call.
