This mounting system now comes in 19 new sizes designed for larger parallel shaft helical and helical bevel gear units. The new sizes cover shaft diameters from 3.25-5 inches and 80-125 mm and come in electroless nickel or stainless steel. They use interchangeable bushings, making it cheaper to build machines for OEMs. The gear unit is also easy to remove, even after hours of operation in corrosive environments. Its small size can be mounted close to bearings or machine frames.
