Quickits Launch Stainless Steel Gearbox Range
In January 2012 Quickits added to its already successful cast iron gearbox range full stainless steel versions of both the WG quarter turn and WG/D de-clutch models.
One of the unique features of the QK stainless steel gearbox range is that the bodies are fully CNC machined from a solid billet, in-house using the latest state of the art CNC machinery. This reduces the risk of any porous pockets or weak areas that could occur due to casting and ensures complete machining concentricity throughout the machining process. Having full control over the design and manufacture also allows Quickits to supply stainless steel gearboxes on much shorter lead times than the market is currently used to. Quickits Launch Stainless Steel Gearbox Range The ‘off the shelf’ S/WG range, as it’s known, consists of 4 models with output torques ranging from 200 Nm up to and including 2000 Nm.
Built with standard ISO base mountings covering F05 to F16 the S/WG range of gearboxes have a single piece input shaft and worm configuration as standard. With adjustable stainless steel travel stop screws this allows the units to be set between 50° and 90° and these are capable of operating in ambient temperatures ranging from -40° F up to and including + 176° F.
The stock de-clutch gearboxes known as the S/ WG/D range consists of 3 models with output torques ranging from 678Nm to 3000Nm. In line with the quarter turn range the bodies are manufactured with standard ISO mountings top and bottom to allow direct mounting to ISO valves and actuators.
Additional options include padlocking flanges, mountings for Namur or non-Namur switch boxes and full 316 stainless steel versions.
