KHK USA Inc. announces Extensive Line of Premium Gearboxes

Large Selection includes Commercial, and Industrial Right-Angle Drives

KHK USA Inc., distributor of the market leading KHK® brand of metric gears, announces its extensive line of right-angle metric gearboxes, manufactured to the highest quality standards by Kohara Gear Industry Co., of Japan. KHK’s large selection of right-angle gearboxes are very quiet, provide smooth transmission of power, and are suitable for a very wide range of applications where speed reduction and a change in orientation is required.

KHK right-angle gearboxes are available with either an aluminum housing for medium-duty application, and cast-iron housing for heavy-duty applications. Reduction ratios include 1:1 and 1:2 with either a single output or dual output shafts.

All KHK right-angle gearboxes contain KHK stock bevel gears. The KBX medium duty boxes and the CBX heavy duty boxes both use case hardened ally steel spiral bevel gears. The KBX series are available as off-the-shelf products and are available for immediate delivery. The CBX units are assembled to order as there are 24 permutations of user defined input locations and rotations.

Right Angle gearboxes transmit motion between two shafts at 90 degrees. Their purpose is to redirect motion and where required, reduce the speed. When set to 1:1, right angle gearboxes will change the direction of rotation and rotate the power transmission 90 degrees. When set to 1:2, right-angle gearboxes will not only change the direct of rotation and rotate the power 90 degrees, it will also reduce the output speed to one half of the input speed while increasing the output torque to twice the input torque value.
