Announcing Partnership between Oriental Motor & Brother!

Postby om_tech_support_JT » Tue Nov 11, 2014 5:16 pm

Oriental Motor U.S.A Corporation and Brother International Corporation (brother) have entered into a strategic partnership which allows Oriental Motor to competitively offer a broader range of 1/2 HP to 3 HP Hypoid and Helical geared AC motors in addition to our line-up of 1/750~1/4 HP. Being a national supplier of Brother’s Mid Series 1/2 HP to 3 HP AC Geared Motors allows Oriental Motor to offer 1 to 2238 Watts AC geared motors to our customers for an even wider range of load requirements.

We will be offering 3 types of “Mid Series” geared ac motors with this line up expansion;
- The G3 Parallel Shaft type
- H2 Right-Angle Foot Mount
- F3 Hollow Bore types.
With this offering, we can meet more application demands and continue to provide industry leading before and after sales service with our industry expertise.

Brother is well known for their superior quality of their Hypoid and Helical geared motors. The brand is “GTR”. Their factories in Japan utilize the most advanced gear cutting machines in the world. With their advanced technology, they are able to offer high strength, compact size gears integrated in one (combination type) package. Each gearmotor is sealed at the factory, utilize grease not oil in the gearbox and offers an “O” ring design so the motors can be mounted in any direction. Key terms to describe these motors are;
*Lightweight and Compact: Aluminum gear housing
*Long Life: 10,000 hours
*Durable Finish: Electrocoated paint is standard on all motors (including IP65)
*Mount in Any Direction: Due to “O” ring sealed design
*Helical or Hypoid Gear Advantage: High efficiency
-Helical - Parallel (Inline): Heat treated (carbonitriding) allows for small gears to be used over standard Spur type.
-Hypoid - Right Angle: more efficient than worm gears with no drop off in efficiency with larger gear ratios, meaning 100% of the torque is available.
*Standard (no X type) product offering:
-IP65 Types / Terminal Box or Lead Wire Types / Brake Types
*Windings: Single-Phase 115 (1/2 HP only) / Single-Phase 220 / Single-Phase 230
-Three-Phase 208/230/460 (one winding type)
*Approvals: UL / CSA / CE
