Flender Himmel Motox helical geared motors and gear units were very popular in Australia for decades, offering flexibility in mounting as well as torque range.
Structured in sizes from the 30 series through to the 181 series in foot mount, the Motox gearbox was designed for output torques ranging from 25Nm to 25,000Nm, with single, double and triple reduction options.
Flender Himmel Motox Strengths
One of the strengths of the Flender Himmel Motox range was the modular assembly system that the German manufacturer employed, allowing all forms of configurations to be available on short delivery times. Standard components included both foot and flange mounted housings, shaft mounted housings, specialist outputs for agitators, as well as a full range of input options.
Flender was keen to ensure the Motox range incorporated as many DIN standards as possible in its design, and utilised only the highest quality cast iron for its housings and surface hardened gears throughout. Although subsequently superseded by other manufacturers in both torque capacity and dimensional compactness, the Flender Himmel Motox series was ahead of the curve during its day.
All Torque Transmissions receives many requests to supplant existing Flender Himmel Motox units with a modern-day alternative, and the original usually can hold its own in a straight line comparison between new and old.
