Original Press Release:
LPB Integrated Geared Pulley Drive System
Elk Grove Village, IL-alpha gear drives, Inc. will display the LPB integrated geared pulley drive system. The LPB gearbox has a flange output, allowing the gearbox to be nested inside the pulley, eliminating the need for a right angle gearbox, couplings
and/or additional bearings; in turn, reducing cost, increasing performance, and reducing parts and system engineering time.
The LPB is available in sizes 70-120mm, with ratios of 1:1, 3:1, 5:1 and 10:1.
The LPB design increases the radial load capacity associated with belt and pulley applications, greatly increasing output bearing life. This design also reduces package size and installation space requirements.
The LPB was designed to be integrated with linear module applications but can be used in many other industrial applications as well.
