Press Release Summary:
Stealth PS in-line and RS right-angle helical planetary gearheads have greater face width for higher load capability, smoother tooth engagement, and lower backlash. Stealth Advanced Gearhead has been improved to reduce heat and increase internal lubrication that will extend seal and gearhead life. Other enhancements include smaller viton seals to reduce start up torque and increase efficiency, magnetic drain plugs, and lower RA shaft surface finishes to improve seal life.
Original Press Release:
Bayside's New Stealth "Advanced" Gearheads
Bayside Motion Group, a leading manufacturer of precision mechanical and electrical motion control products, announces that it has advanced its high performance Stealth PS (in-line) and RS (right-angle) Helical Planetary Gearheads.
The Stealth Helical Planetary Gearhead has always provided engineered advantages with it's Helical Planetary Design. The Helical tooth contact and greater face width results in higher load capability, smoother tooth engagement and lower backlash. This patented HeliCrown gear tooth design has performed exceptionally over the years offering a quieter (less than 68 db) and stronger gear.
The New Stealth "Advanced" Gearhead has been improved to reduce heat and increase internal lubrication that will extend seal and gearhead life. Engineering design enhancements include:
- The use of smaller, low friction viton seals reduce start up torque (stiction) and increase efficiency.
- The use of oil to improve the lubrication of seals and bearings.
- Magnetic drain plugs to attract metal wear and offer regular maintenance for oil changes.
- A new front cover design to make seal replacement and field service easy.
- Lower RA shaft surface finishes to improve seal life.
Bayside Motion Group offers a family of motion control products and systems to leading industrial companies worldwide. System solutions include: servo systems, geared drives and high accuracy linear positioning systems for customers in the semiconductor, electronics, automotive, medical, machine tool and telecommunications industries. Bayside is a unique U.S. manufacturer, providing electromechanical automation subsystems that combine servo motor, gear and linear bearing technologies under one roof.
