The fluid shaft motor can also be built with many other components to expand its versatility. Brakes and gearboxes can be mounted in a number of configurations to match the customer’s requirements. For example, a Reuland brake can be mounted before or after the fluid shaft motor. Gearboxes combined with Reuland brakes and fluid shaft motors offer complete drive train solutions for our customers.
Reuland combines a quality electric motor with a fluid coupling to form a fluid shaft motor. This package harnesses all the advantages of a fluid coupling in an integral, compact motor frame. This one frame design can reduce the overall length of two separate devices by almost one-third. Fluid shaft motors are available in ratings of (0.5- 15) horsepower in standard NEMA U-frame sizes.
