cymex® 5: Downsizing Your Servo System with alpha Premium

Adding a low-backlash planetary gearbox to a servo system generates more torque than a servo motor alone.  This allows for better inertia matching, greater system stiffness,  and reduces the overall size of the system's envelope.  WITTENSTEIN alpha Premium Line low-backlash gearboxes allow you to downsize further with less than 1 arc min backlash and greater torque values in a more compact frame.  In today's webinar, our Engineering Team will show you:

  • Performance characteristics of the alpha Premium Line
  • How to size a gearbox suitable for a high-performance system
  • How the alpha Premium Line delivers greater system flexibility
