CONSTANT FEED GEARBOXES

To determine what feed rate gearbox you have it’s as simple as counting the sprocket teeth and chain pitch.  If sprockets and chains are in poor condition or not installed correctly the molder feed drive will NOT work properly.  

P-511 Complete Gearbox is a 15 feet per minute (FPM)  constant feed rate.  The (2) chains, (2) drive sprockets and (2) feed roll sprockets determine the speed rate.  Click here for a P-511 schematic.

15 feet per minute –

  • (1) P-112; Chain, #25, Short, Infeed, 32 Pitch   
  • (1) P-212; Chain, #25, Long, Outfeed, 58 Pitch
  • (2) P-110; Sprocket, 16 Tooth (drive sprockets located inside the chain guard)
  •  (2) P-111; Sprocket, 15 Tooth (feed roll sprockets, 1 on the end of each feed roll)                              

P-511 REV A Complete Gearbox is a 11 feet per minute (FPM) constant feed rate.  The (2) chains, (2) drive sprockets and (2) feed roll sprockets determine the speed rate.   Click here for a P-511 REV A schematic.

11 feet per minute –

  • (1) P-155; Chain, #25, Short, Infeed, 30 Pitch                                              
  • (1) P-156; Chain, #25, Long, Outfeed, 56 Pitch                                             
  • (2) P-150; Sprocket, 12 Tooth (drive sprockets located inside the chain guard)                                            
  • (2) P-111; Sprocket, 15 Tooth (feed roll sprockets, 1 on the end of each feed roll)     

54-312-K Raised Panel Kit.  Customers that have a 15 feet per minute molder and molding raised panel doors may have changed the original (15 FPM) sprockets and chains to our raised panel kit.  Due to the cutting design of raised panel knives the 15 FPM chains would sometimes rub on the raised section of the door.   The raised panel kit sprockets and chains eliminated this issue.  If your gearbox is 11 (FPM) the raised panel kit is not needed.

Raised Panel Kit -            

  • (1) P-155; Chain, #25, Short, Infeed, 30 Pitch
  • (1) P-156; Chain, #25, Long, Outfeed, 56 Pitch
  • (2) P-153; Sprocket, 14 Tooth (drive sprocket located inside the chain guard)   
  • (2) P-152; Sprocket, 13 Tooth (feed roll sprockets, 1 on the end of each feed roll)
