Product Overview

Product Usage:
All AndyMark gearboxes require grease for proper operation and long life. We suggest using our red tacky grease, am-2768. We also encourage that the user powers the gearbox continuously for 30 minutes without grease to allow the gear teeth to wear in. While we do design with short run times in mind, this 'run in' period for smooth gearbox operation, is recommended. Once this is completed, thoroughly grease the gear teeth periodically to ensure smooth operation.

This gearbox is single stage, single reduction gearbox that yields a 4.67:1 gear reduction from a CIM style input. This gearbox is shipped in kit form, unassembled. The CIM Motors are NOT INCLUDED with this gearbox.

CIMple Box accepts two (or one) 2.5 in. CIM style Motors. Hardware is included for attaching two of these motors. 

Previous versions of this gearbox has a shaft that protruded 1.55 in. from the face of the bearing. In 2020 and beyond the shaft protrudes 2.16 in. from the face of the bearing.  

Included Hardware:
Additional Encoder: An optional Encoder can be purchased and added to this CIMple Box

    CIMple not so simple

    We needed a low format gearbox to add a spooling pulley for a two stage vertical slide extension. We had to modify the box and shaft to achieve the result we wanted, using a 1/2 inch hex drive shaft with the magnet cut off and a second snapping cut into the shaft. We then had to use a step drill to bore out the side holes to allow the gears from the cim motors to extend through the bracket. The single down bolting cut bracket would allow flex in our application and the back of the two cim motors had to be strapped down to prevent flex. Maybe we picked the wrong gearbox for our application but with the shortages during build season we got what we could and made it work.

    Awesome! Worked Perfectly!!

    This is what we decided to go with for our rope climbing mechanism, and it worked flawlessly, once we got enough power to it and put a 2nd CiM motor on it!

    "Awesome, but would love a 3 motor option"

    "This gearbox is great especially because it is so light. With FIRST allowing 6 CIMs this year and other gearboxes that allow you to turn another motor into a CIM in terms of output rpm, even if FIRST only allows 4 CIMs next year a 6 CIM option for this gearbox would be great so that you could avoid the weight of the Toughbox."
