New Planetary Gearbox is Suitable for Horizontal and Vertical Robotic Applications

Press Release Summary:

GAM’s Planetary Robotic Gearbox is available in seven frame sizes ranging from 180-330 mm in GPL-V (shaft) and GPL-H (hollow) versions. The unit offers torque ranging from 400-3,000 Nm and a backlash of ≤ 0.1 arc minute. These gearboxes deliver an efficiency of 90% with noise level of 65 dB and 20,000 hrs service life. They are offered in flange and hollow output designs and right angle versions.

Original Press Release:

New Planetary Robotic Gearbox from GAM

The GPL-V (shaft) and GPL-H (hollow) are our lowest backlash (≤ 0.1 arc minute ) planetary gearboxes for horizontal and vertical robotic applications. A patented design guarantees that the backlash will not increase over the life time of the gearbox. Very high tilting rigidity results in excellent positioning accuracy with a rated 20,000 hours which is over 3x longer than comparable gearboxes in the market.

The noise level of 65dB compared to 69dB of comparable models makes it ideal for MRI applications where low noise levels are critical.

The efficiency is over 90% compared to 70 – 80% of other models allowing for lower power consumption which could result in choosing a smaller motor.

Features include:

  • Zero Backlash (< 0.1arcmin)
  • High torsional rigidity, torque density, and accuracy
  • Torque range from 400-3,000Nm
  • 90% Efficiency
  • 65 dB noise level
  • 20,000 hour service life
  • Compact design
  • Flange and Hollow output designs
  • Right Angle versions
  • 7 Frame sizes from 180-330mm
  • Subassembly and Fully Enclosed versions
  • Ratios from 40-200
  • No maintenance
