Design Highlights














Helical gears provide 33% more gear contact compared to spur gears, while the helix angle provides for a smooth mesh reducing both noise and backlash.




High performance is achieved by easing off the tooth profile and crowning the lead edge of each gear tooth. The result is superior gear mesh alignment and tooth contact.




This process provides a consistent tooth surface hardness of 840Hv for superior wear resistance and a core hardness of 30 HRc for durability.




This patented design places the sun gear bearing directly into the planet carrier, minimizing gear misalignment resulting in greater accuracy. This design also provides maximum radial load capacity, increasing design reliability and stiffness.




Each planet gear rotates on uncaged needle roller bearings optimizing contact points to increase design stiffness and torque capacity.




Each unit is factory lubricated with Nyogel 792D synthetic grease and sealed to IP65 standards. Food grade grease is available upon request.




This patented system reduces break-away torque and heat via a special coating on all sealing surfaces. The coating achieves a hardness of 3700Hv and is then ground to reduce wear and erosion. This technology prevents leaks and results in a service life greater than 20,000 hours.




The design features a triple split collet that provides a backlash free connection with 100% concentricity. This balanced design ensures smooth operation at high speeds.




These units are designed for assembly in a variety of NEMA and metric housings to provide dimensional drop-ins to several competitive units where higher quality and lower cost is required.
