Bison Introduces Metric PowerSTAR Right-angle Hypoid Gearmotor Line 06/30/2014

Available now, Bison Gear and Engineering has launched a metric complement to all standard inch PowerSTAR part numbers across all ratios and motor options. This will provide better mounting for metric equipment and open up new doors and opportunities for the PowerSTAR hypoid product line.


The PowerSTAR gearmotor was designed as a global product, featuring mounting options for both domestic and European equipment. With the new metric offering, PowerSTAR now allows users to select metric sized output shafts. Exact measurements of the ID are as follows:

  • 720 Series = 20 mm
  • 725 Series = 25 mm
  • 730 Series = 30 mm

From chip conveying on industrial hobbing and milling machines to material handling packaging conveyors, PowerSTAR gearmotors are designed to improve efficiency and performance over traditional worm gear and other older technology options currently in the market. As with the standard inch version, the metric PowerSTAR gearmotors are equipped with several advantages over the competing technology:

  • Advanced hypoid gear technology offers 4X the efficiency of traditional right-angle gearmotors
  • Maximum power density means a compact profile without compromising performance
  • Exclusive PowerSTAR® EP lubricant for extended life
  • Ground gearing provides whisper quiet operation and low backlash precision
  • Torque Ranges from 4-195 Nm
  • Watts Range 50 - 250
  • Versatile mounting interchangeability allows easy upgrade of installed drives

The PowerSTAR metric series are available to order now. For more information on PowerSTAR or other problem-solving Bison Gear and Engineering products, please visit our newly designed website at www.bisongear.com.
