For over 50 years, CAVEX from Swabia in Germany has been proving not all worm gears are the same. Besides its new-generation CAVEXcompact worm gearboxes, the company is also showcasing a new stainless steel gearbox range at HANNOVER MESSE 2016 that has been carefully conceived to tick all the boxes in terms of "hygienic design". By combining the established CAVEX product features such as load-bearing capacity, low noise and compact design with the ability to deliver even high ratios in compact form, the new stainless steel gearbox range is perfectly suited for applications in the beverages and food industry and chemical and pharmaceutical sectors.
The use of stainless steel and a gearbox casing design characterized by rounded outer surfaces makes the worm gearbox particularly easy to clean. This opens up an incredibly wide range of potential applications, as the new gearboxes make the perfect replacement for conventional gearboxes that needed carefully isolating from critical zones behind stainless steel covers or for coated gearboxes that tended to be a compromise at best. The new gearbox range from CAVEX is available in three different sizes - sizes 40 and 50 are produced as gear motors with integrated housings and size 63 is available both with and without a motor.
