Rexnord Corp. is offering an inching drive option for its Falk V-Class gear drive. This optional standard package will enable the V-Class gear drive to offer reliable full-load inching operation. This allows slow-speed operation of equipment for inspection and maintenance purposes. It can also be run continuously to prevent freeze-up of components in harsh and cold weather environments when facilities may be temporarily not in production. The inching drive utilizes a Falk Ultramite gear drive that is integrally mounted to the main gear drive unit coupled via an overrunning clutch. This allows the inching drive to be automatically disengaged when the main motor is operating. Moreover, the Falk V-Class gear drive incorporates the latest advances in materials technology, engineering design and manufacturing processes to produce a tough, reliable gearbox that excels in today’s demanding applications, according to the company. Features are built into the drive to bring customers maximum uptime in a smaller drive at a lower total cost of ownership.
