ABB announces new gearmotor

ABB introduces the Dodge® Quantis® gearmotor, featuring IEC rated motors that have NEMA Design B torque characteristics offering up to 50% more starting and overload torque versus competitive products. This means more torque is available when cold or fully loaded starting is required, ensuring equipment gets moving.

The new Quantis gearmotor is engineered to provide the highest starting torque and easiest shaft mounting of any major gearmotor currently available.

For shaft-mounted applications, Quantis gearmotors feature the patented twin-tapered bushing system that provides easy installation and removal of the reducer from the shaft, saving time and maintenance.

“This product is unique in that both the gear reducer and the motor are designed to withstand the high torque required during cold starting with no damage to motor windings or gearing,” explains Tristin Hurst, Product Manager, MPT Products, ABB Limited. “Another critical advantage for customers is the exclusive twin-tapered bushings that cause no shaft damage, making it fast and easy to remove the reducer no matter how long it has been in service.”

Quantis gearmotors are readily available for the European market in three styles: inline (ILH), right angle (RHB) or offset parallel (MSM).

With ratings from 0.18 kW - 7.5 kW, up to 14 000 Nm output torque, and ratios up to 350:1, the new Quantis gearmotor is ideal for pumping, material handling, conveying and mixing applications found in a variety of industries.
