Brother is the pioneer and leading manufacturer of Hypoid Bevel gearmotors. This
unique right-angle type gearmotor has much higher power transmission efficiency
than conventional worm gears. Growing demand is due to its COMPACTNESS, HIGH EFFICIENCY,
and superior wear life, which meet the latest primary requirements for industrial
- Input Speed - 1800 RPM
- Hypoid - Grease Lubrication
- Worm - Oil Lubrication
The graph at left shows actual measured efficiency, 1/4 Hp to 3 Hp.
Because of the high efficiency of the Hypoid/Helical combination, there is no self-locking
in the back drive direction.
Big Energy Savings, Smaller Motor Hp Input
Due to the superior efficiency, it is often possible to replace worm gearbox/motor
combination with a smaller Hp input in a Hypoid and actually receive greater torque
at the driven shaft. Also, with smaller motor Hp, less electrical current is required,
resulting in big savings on electric bills.
