Or more accurately, around the corner: Electro Mechanical Systems has announced that it is now supplying updated versions of the Nidec DCK right angled gear-motor range. The design has moved from a deep drawn housing to a rolled construction, which provides the same performance but with improved cost efficiency, according to EMS. The units are manufactured in Germany by Nidec Motors & Actuators, part of the Japanese Nidec group.

The new upgraded right angled motors have a high gear reduction ratio to deliver high torque performance in a small package. In particular, Nidec’s DCK35 series provides torque ratings up to 8Nm while weighing just 1.2kg, a combination which the supplier says makes the motors suitable for patient aid medical equipment such as hoists, bath lifts and mechanical operating tables. The revised housing now makes the range an option for industrial applications too, such as door openers, food processing equipment and labelling and conveying systems. The range is available in both 12V and 24V variants.
