Custom Differential Gearbox

Differential gearbox assembly provided with open loop, AC, Slow Syn motor with custom mounting plate and 3:1 timing belt reduction to differential control shaft to achieve customer’s desired correction rate between input and output shafts. Gearbox includes timing belt pulley mounted to the input. This differential gearbox assembly is ready to drop into the client’s food packaging machine retrofit project providing infinite, bi-directional phase/timing control of a candy bar packaging machine; specifically the gearbox times a heated, rotating wheel that seals and cuts the ends of the pre-printed wrapper after its formed around the candy bar and sealed down its length.
