Sumitomo Machinery Corporation of America (SMA), U.S. headquarters for Sumitomo Drive Technologies, introduces its newest Cyclo® Bevel Buddybox 4 Series (BBB4) and 5 Series (BBB5), available to the market on June 1, 2012.





About the 4 Series:  Upgraded from the Cyclo® BBB3 Series

The new upgraded series is a robust, state-of-the-art, mid-sized family of right angle spiral bevel speed reducers and gearmotors.  The Cyclo® BBB4 is a unique combination of features that results in a highly reliable, efficient and durable gearbox.  The all-steel internal construction, featuring Cyclo® or planetary inputs that exceed performances of any involute input gear, and the ductile iron housing provide unmatched ruggedness.  Dimensionally interchangeable with the Cyclo® BBB3 series, the newly redesigned Cyclo® BBB4 series has been optimized for increased power ratings over the previous generations.  Additionally, a new F size yields higher torque and accommodates larger shaft diameters.  Sumitomo also introduces 46 new standard ratios, along with 87 optional ratios with this generation of Cyclo® BBB4.

About the 5 Series:  Newly designed for shaft mounted applications
The new series is an amazingly compact, energy efficient family of right angle spiral bevel speed reducers and gearmotors.  This new Cyclo® BBB5 series has been optimized for direct shaft mounted applications.  Similar to the Cyclo® BBB4 Series, the Cyclo® BBB5 has an exceptional combination of features that results in a very reliable gearbox.  The all-steel rotating components, featuring Cyclo® or planetary inputs that exceed performances of any involute input gear, exclusive bevel outputs, and compact housing design provide top performance without thermal limitations.  In addition, to enable customers to precisely define operating speeds, Sumitomo introduces more than 100 ratios with this new 5 series of Cyclo® BBB.

Sumitomo is dedicated to increasing their manufacturing capabilities in a market that continues to expand throughout the Americas.  This product initiative enhances Sumitomo’s ability to provide readily available, competitive bevel gearbox designs with world-class efficiencies.  The increased manufacturing capabilities at SMA’s facility in Chesapeake, VA will help support the production of the Cyclo® BBB4 and Cyclo® BBB5 Series.
