Crown Lubricated Gear Drives

Nov. 27, 2018
Zero-Max's gear drives handle speeds up to 2,000 rpm.

Lubricated for life with Beacon 325 premium grade grease, Zero-Max Crown drives feature heat-treated AGMA Class 10 spiral bevel gears. This combination of bearing design and lubrication formulation ensures long-term, maintenance-free operation for high-performance, industrial applications. The drives feature long-life, precision hardened, and ground ball bearings handling speeds up to 2,000 rpm in most operating environments. The internal gears are permanently mounted to the shafts with the use of a press-fit and locking pins. This provides a very resilient and durable connection for use in heavy load applications while requiring no maintenance.


Lubrication with Beacon 325 grease ensures optimum performance in temperature ranges from -50 to +120°C without evaporation. This is especially important in sealed for life systems using motors, generators, and similar equipment in industrial applications.


Zero-Max ensures their drives are predictably smooth operating, and similar model sizes have identical performance characteristics when designed into multiple drive setups. To accomplish this, Zero-Max drives are precision assembled for perfect bearing and gear alignment. The drives are pre-lubricated during assembly, then completely enclosed in a heavy-duty anodized aluminum housing.  This design ensures that internal gears stay permanently aligned, lubricated, and free of contamination from outside debris.


Zero-Max Crown drives are ideal for a wide range of machine applications including food processing, packaging, and material handling systems. Available in many sizes and models, they are ideal for a wide range of horsepower, torque, and shaft speed requirements. Standard two and three-way models are available with 1:1 and 2:1 speed ratios in shaft diameter combinations of 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, and 3/4 in.
