Product Features

  • Due to the load sharing attributes of multiple tooth contacts,planetary gearboxes provide the highest torque and stiffness for any given envelope 
  • Balanced planetary kinematics at high speeds combined with the associated load sharing make planetary-type gearheads ideal for servo applications
  • True helical technology provides increased tooth to tooth contact ratio by 33% vs. spur gearing 12¡ helix angle produces smooth and quiet operation
  • One piece planet carrier and output shaft design reduces backlash
  • Single step machining process
  • Assures 100% concentricity Increases torsional rigidity
  • Efficient lubrication for life
