Parallel Shaft Speed Reducers

Rebuild & Replace

Parallel Shaft reducers are a common gear speed reducer configuration used to increase torque and slow down motor output. They can be more compact than other solutions, and offer a long lasting motor for continuous use.

What is a Parallel Shaft Speed Reducer?

Parallel Shaft Reducers, also known as Parallel Shaft Reducer Gearboxes, are gear speed reducers in which the motor shaft and reducer output shaft are on parallel planes. This allows them to take up less room than coaxial reducers and have high power and torque outputs. Parallel Shaft Speed Reducers are produced in a variety of sizes, brands, and styles, and can be custom or standard builds. They are a great choice for continuous duty applications.

Parallel Shaft Speed Reducers come in three main gear types: Spur, Helical, and Double Helical. Each gear type comes with its own advantages and costs. Spur gears are most common, and also typically most affordable, while Helical and Double Helical gears tend to be more expensive, they are quieter and more powerful.
