Right-angle Planetary Gearboxes

vr-seriesEV Series variants

To expand the potential configurations and overall solutions that we could offer our customers, NIDEC-SHIMPO has developed an impressive right-angle planetary gearbox offering. The core right-angle products are established from the base design of their inline equivalents. Similar to our Inline offering,  our EV right-angle series have some differences in terms of internal bearing design, output mounting, among others that differentiate each series from the other. The different series are available in the same frame size variety and most of the ratios as offered with the inline.

The EV right-angle product family is an excellent option when space is a key design constraint for the equipment manufacturer. With our rapidly growing customer base in the packaging, general material handling and machine tool industries, NIDEC-SHIMPO is seeing accelerating demand for our right-angle planetary gearboxes. To manage this growing demand, NIDEC-SHIMPO has established stocking and assembly capabilities in its North America build facility in Itasca, IL. Please contact NIDEC-SHIMPO directly, so that we can help you size your application and inform you which series, frame sizes, and ratios are immediately available

Please review the performance specifications below and consult NIDEC-SHIMPO for any additional details.
