WEG’s geared motors claim worldwide interchangeability

WEG’s WG20 geared motor product line includes helical, parallel-shaft and helical bevel gear units with rugged pressure-cast aluminium housings and torque ratings from 50 to 600 Nm.

The geared motors are available in energy efficiency class up to IE3 and have standardised mounting dimensions, making them interchangeable.

The standardised mounting dimensions of the WG20 geared motors make them suitable for use in new and existing systems worldwide, says the company. WEG’s modular gearbox motors also cover virtually all supply voltages worldwide thanks to internal voltage switching, making them easily interchangeable. In addition, the motors are especially efficient thanks to two-stage gear units covering a large range of gear reduction ratios and low power dissipation, which also results in lower housing surface temperatures. Precision machining and toothing ensure low-loss power transfer and low noise levels, along with very smooth running and extended service life.
