Alphira - A New Addition to the Alpha Family

The inline basic precision alphira® product proves to be another valuable addition to an already innovative range of servo planetary gearheads

Fast, flexible, efficient - three attractive attributes to win customers. alpha has broken new ground with the latest in an impressive line of precision planetary gearheads. alphira® is the name of the youngest offspring in the popular alpha product family. Packaged in a lightweight aluminum case, alphira® is precise, power-dense and maintenance-free. With unique mounting dimensions, this basic precision is well poised to tackle your low-precision applications.

Ideal as a component of servo and stepper motor applications, alphira® is optimally equipped for the job. In terms of reliability, efficiency and precision, alphira® is every bit as impressive as its older siblings in the rest of the alpha family.

Technical characteristics in brief:
- Low-backlash planetary gearhead
- 4 sizes (40, 60, 80, 115)
- 5 reduction ratios (1-stage 5, 10 / 2-stage 25, 50, 100)
- Aluminum case, unvarnished
- Lightweight (approx. 2.5 3 kg)
- High efficiency > 95%
- Low noise level
- Designed for cyclic and continuous operation
- Very simple motor mounting
