TREOTHAM Trading presents Alpha's new HG+ right-angle gearhead, which allows machine designers to solve longstanding inefficiencies associated with right-angle applications.
The result of Alpha's research and technology shift into single-stage gearing technology, the HG+ achieves an efficiency above 96% with guaranteed backlash of <4 arc minutes, rations of I = 3-10 and an acceleration torque of 20-640Nm - all in a compact, right-angle gearhead solution.
Additional advantages of the single-stage gearhead design include low inertia, high speeds, low noise, low heat and lower system costs.
The technology shift to one-stage gearing compares favourably with servo worm gears and with larger, more complicated, two and three stage gearheads with bevel stages.
HG+ is an optimal solution for compact servomotor applications such as packaging and converting machinery, handling and gantry robots and flat bed type machinery.
The HG+ is available in five sizes. It mounts to all servomotors in five minutes, using a universal mounting system.
