Regal Beloit Corporation, a manufacturer of electric motors, electrical motion controls, power generation and power transmission components, had recently announced that its Grove Gear Stainless Steel Worm Gear Reducer has achieved third party IP69K certification.

Ingress Protection (IP) Marking rates the degree of protection provided by mechanical casings and electrical enclosures against intrusion, dust, accidental contact and water. It is published by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The IP69K rating is for high-pressure, high-temperature washdown applications. Enclosures conforming to it must not only be dust-tight, but also able to withstand high pressure and steam cleaning.

The Grove Gear Stainless Steel Worm Gear Reducer now joins the Hub City® Hera® Stainless Steel Gear Drive, Sealmaster® PN Gold Mounted Bearings and the Leeson® Extreme Duck® Ultra Motor as third party IP69K-certified products from Regal. Together, these four products provide a complete washdown solution for food and beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical processing applications.

“Traditionally, IP ratings have been used for electrical components, but the industry is starting to recognize the benefit of IP rating for power transmission components,” said David Silverman, product manager of worm gearing at Regal. “This allows our customers to have a better understanding of the product capabilities for specification purposes. We are pleased that the Grove Gear Stainless Steel Worm Gear Reducer now carries the formal IP69K certification.”

This Grove Gear Stainless Steel Worm Gear Reducer has a 316 stainless steel housing to withstand extreme environments. An O-ring on the face of the motor adapter, poppet-style vent, and v-rings on the output shaft seals provide a system that fights dust and moisture intrusion. A 303 stainless steel output shaft and stainless steel hardware are also included.

This reducer is also available with Leeson motors pre-assembled for the perfect performance-matched and IP69K-certified solution.

EV Powertrain LinesBy Bill Sarver

What will the automotive marketplace look like in 10 years and how do I prepare for it? That’s the question foremost on the minds of the powertrain plant personnel I encounter in my work as an industry consultant.

It’s not an easy question to answer given that we are in the midst of a truly revolutionary time in the automotive industry. To address regional emissions mandates and upcoming bans on gasoline and diesel-powered automobiles, manufacturers are ramping up their focus on electric vehicles (EVs).
