AutomationDirect Offers Hub-Style Servo Gearboxes

Cumming, GA --- July 1, 2015 ... AutomationDirect's line of SureGear® precision servo gearboxes now includes hub-style inline models. The PGD series sets a new standard in applications requiring extremely high torque ratings and rigidity. The compact design and hub-style output is ideal for equipment that requires high-speed, high-precision indexing movement. The remarkable torsion stiffness and the low backlash of the planetary gearing combine to provide outstanding positioning accuracy.

The hub-style gearboxes feature a best-in-class backlash rating of less than 3 arc-minutes and exceptional torque handling capabilities. Available in gear ratios ranging from 5:1 to 50:1, the PGD series offers a high-performance, robust planetary solution for OEM customers. Additional features include helical-cut planetary gears for quiet operation and reduced vibration as well as uncaged needle roller bearings for high rigidity and torque.

The PGD reducer is often used for larger indexing applications and dial tables commonly found in packaging machines, filling equipment, injection molding machines and assembly automation systems.

Maintenance free, the gearboxes contain high-viscosity, anti-separation grease which does not migrate away from the gears and does not leak through the seal.

Starting at $722.00, the SureGear PGD-series gearboxes can be mounted in any orientation, have an IP55 environmental rating and are backed with a five-year warranty.
