Gearheads vs. Programmable Index Drives for Horizontal Rotation Application

In Industrial Automation, it seems there is a growing trend of rotation devices to become infinitely programmable. When doing so, some find using a gearbox or gearhead would work fine for this, coupled to a servo motor or AC motor with encoder. Others have been finding out the difficult way that on horizontal rotating applications where high inertias coupled with the requirement for high accuracy...
