What Makes Foote-Jones Gears so Good?
Foote-Jones has been around since 1859. They are among the oldest gear manufacturers in the world. As a part of Regal Beloit since 1990, the company produces all types of gearboxes and reducers, which also include shaft-mount designs. Their products come in different housing dimensions, shaft sizes, and reduction ratios. They are all robust, rugged, made of high-strength metals, and with premium seals. Their through-hardened shafts and oversized bearing are among the several unique features of their products.
Foote-Jones Gearboxes, Reducers, and Shaft-Mount Reducers
The primary function of gearboxes and reducers is to adjust the torque to the desired output. That means it must very exact to hold to an accurate reduction ratio. However, it must also be able to withstand the operation load. This is more important in heavy-duty machines like those used in the mining industry. Hence, gearboxes must be strong and rugged. Shafts used in Foote-Jones gearboxes and reducers are through-hardened and heat-treated to impact the desired strength and ruggedness. The reducers are concentric and configured to withstand heavy loads and shock. They are also easy to maintain and rebuild. Their shaft-mount reducers come in different dimensions, power rating, and reduction ratios. The oil sump is large to ensure proper lubrication, and the housing is made with ductile iron, which resists vibration.
