Leading manufacturer of mechanical motion control solutions, Thomson Industries announces new enhancements to its web-based sizing and selection tool for Micron TRUE planetary gearheads.

Micron planetary gearheads from Thomson are used on high precision motion control applications, such as CNC cutting, material handling and many variations of packaging equipment, all of which usually require a high torque to volume ratio, high torsional stiffness, and low backlash.

MicronMOTIONEERING is a unique, application-based sizing and selection tool that quickly and easily identifies the correct planetary gearhead for any motion control application. Featuring an improved interface and expanded product offering, the MicronMOTIONEERING tool enables users to save time and also have the confidence they’ve selected the optimal gearhead for their motion control application.

The upgraded user interface of the MicronMOTIONEERING tool is designed and tested to provide a professional user experience for design engineers.

The expanded MicronMOTIONEERING tool now covers the full Micron offering, including the stainless steel AquaTRUE gearheads, ideal for food and packaging applications, and the XTRUE, a drop-in replacement for common gearheads in the market today.

Howard Horn, Product Manager Micron Gearheads at Thomson Industries explains that MicronMOTIONEERING is an intuitive tool that greatly simplifies gearhead sizing and selection to help OEMs optimise their machine design in much less time than it takes using manual calculations and paper catalogue look ups.

Describing MicronMOTIONEERING as the best sizing and selection tool for gearheads available online today, he added that end users will find the cross reference guide and expedited delivery option a lifesaver for line down situations.

Following the upgrade, customers have to simply enter a few key application parameters for the MicronMOTIONEERING tool to instantly deliver all the information needed to specify and order the best gearhead for their motion control application. It’s also now easier to quickly configure and download 3D models along with detailed specifications including list price, delivery time, configuration parameters, life calculations, motor sizing and more.
