David Brown has launched its new F2 range of geared motors. The F2 is available in 11 sizes up to 110kW capacity and combines high performance characteristics and instant availability with David Brown's other recognised brand values.
The overall product performance has been bettered thanks to a range of design improvements. Wider gear teeth and heavier and harder-wearing bearings combine to produce a 20 per cent improvement in output from a given footprint and the F2, which is entirely designed, manufactured and assembled in Europe, employs fewer components than previous models.
With the dry-fit capability of the F2 range, the motors can be removed and replaced simply and without exposing the gearbox, thus avoiding loss of lubricant or increased maintenance costs.
The F2 range is the result of careful development by David Brown and its European sister company Benzlers. It also represents an ongoing investment in its modular geared motor range, utilising many common components from the series M, K and C ranges already available. This not only makes specification of the most suitable geared motor unit easier for all sections of the supply chain, but significantly reduces inventory requirements.
Chris Morrell, General Manager of Standard Products, comments: "This latest development continues David Brown's commitment to providing a smarter range of products with real benefits for the customer. It will also help to extend our cooperation with distributor partners to offer off-the-shelf availability, plus a wealth of applications experience and practical advice to all sections of the market place."
The modular approach to F2's design and construction means that 600 elements can be combined to create 10million assembly permutations in terms of capacity, configuration and application suitability. For further information, visit www.davidbrown.com/geared-motors.php.
