High-Speed Drives target vertical lathes.

October 24, 2014

Using planetary reducers, high-speed versions of DRP, KRP, and KRPX Drives simplify design of mechanical transmission systems of both large rotary tables used on vertical lathes over 2,000 m and smaller tables used on milling machines. When meshed with drive gear, reducers on TwinDrive and DualDrive solutions cancel 100% of backlash. Reducers have been hardened to allow continuous operating cycles and can achieve rotational speeds up to 28 rpm-1. Read More
