Planetary gears

The company is now offering a high-performance and economical drive program with the addition of planetary gears to its line of synchronous and stepper motors. The gears come fully mounted on 8LSA, 8LVA , 8JSA, and 80MP Series motors, eliminating troublesome communication problems between the motor and gear suppliers. Gears in both straight and angled designs and with all conventional drive flange geometries are available.

Standard single-stage gears for gear ratios i = 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 and have ≤8 to 15-arc-min backlash. Two-stage or three-stage designs are also available. The line’s premium Series provides backlash ≤1 arc-min as an option paired with high-output torques.
