About Sumitomo Gearmotors

AutomatedPT is your source for SUMITOMO motors, gearmotors, and variable frequency drives

Sumitomo’s industry leading technology, combined with AutomatedPT’s extensive experience, can assist you in selecting the right unit or developing a multi-component system optimized to your application.

General purpose units
Sumitomo concentric drives include inline reducers and gearmotors suitable for both light and heavy-duty applications. Advantages include:

  • compact modular design
  • easy installation of output chains and sprockets
  • high shock load capacity
  • durability
  • wide ratio ranges

Right-angle and specialty drives
Sumitomo right-angle drives are ideal for special applications where space is at a premium or design considerations demand a right-angle configuration. Advantages include:

  • compact space-saving profile
  • ease of installation
  • shaft mounted reducers and gearmotors
  • spiral, bevel and Hypoid® gear designs for quiet, efficient performance
  • simplified maintenance due to absence of chain, sprocket, and chain guard

The Sumitomo Cyclo® series—a wide range of sizes and configurations for industry’s toughest jobs

Incorporating advanced technology, rugged construction, and outstanding performance, the Sumitomo Cyclo® series units deliver superb performance in a compact, durable package.

  • Cyclo® Bevel Buddybox 4 Series—a state-of-the-art mid-size family of speed reducers and gearmotors
  • Cycle® Bevel Buddybox 5 Series—a highly efficient, compact series of gearmotors and speed reducers
  • Cyclo® Overhead Drive—drop-in ready for DVX and European standard footprints in both inline and right-angle configurations, the Cyclo® Overhead Conveyor Drive excels in food industry and general applications including automotive and other conveyor systems
  • Beier Cyclo® Variator—the ultra-compact combination of a Beier Variator and a Cyclo® Reducer that provides both adjustable speed range and extremely low output speeds
  • Fine Cyclo®—a precision reducer for applications that demand accurate positioning and repeatability such as industrial robotics and automated production equipment. Fine Cyclo® features zero backlash, minimal lost motion, and high torsional stiffness.
  • Cyclo® 6000—the most popular of the Cyclo® line—the Cyclo® 6000 eliminates wear, shear, and other problems associated with gear drives through its epicycloidal (planetary) design. Two-thirds of its reduction components are in contact at all times

Available in sizes ranging from 1/8 hp to 100 hp, Cyclo® 6000 is most frequently used with Sumitomo variable frequency drives and is engineered to deliver high performance over a long life. An intrinsic lubrication system eliminates conventional maintenance problems, and the Cyclo® 6000 CN variation can be mounted in any direction.

  • Cyclo® Servomotor Servo 6000–a low-backlash version of the standard Servo drive, the Servo 6000 is available in both foot-mounted and flange-mounted designs.
  • Cyclo® Servomotor Servo 100—based on Cyclo® technology, Servomotor speed reducers offer a combination of high strength, low inertia, low noise, and high reduction ratios in a small, lightweight package
  • Cyclo® Centrifuge Drives—designed for conveyor applications, Sumitomo Centrifuge Drives provide the differential speed between the bowl and the conveyor and the torque for the conveyor. The perfectly balanced housing is connected with the bowl and turns at the bowl speed
  • Cyclo® Helical Buddybox (Cyclo® HBB)—the parallel shaft, helical gearbox with Cyclo reducer input features keyless, steel taper-Grip® bushing for easy mounting

Hansen P4 Series
