AutomationDirect now offers IronHorse stainless steel worm gearboxes. Worm gearboxes are power transmission devices that drive a load at a fixed reduced ratio of a motor’s speed. The stainless steel housings of these gearboxes make them suitable for the food and beverage industry and many other harsh industrial applications.
