Thomson Industries, Inc. has expanded its web-based sizing and selection tool for Micron® TRUE Planetary™ Gearheads. The web-based MicronMOTIONEERING® is an application-based sizing and selection tool that quickly and easily identifies the correct planetary gearhead for an application. The improved MicronMOTIONEERING interface and expanded product offering allows users to save time and boost confidence in knowing that they’ve selected the optimal gearhead for their motion control application.
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. These applications usually require a high torque to volume ratio, high torsional stiffness, and low backlash that are the performance advantages that the Micron products offer. The upgraded user interface was designed and tested to provide a professional user experience for design engineers. The expanded MicronMOTIONEERING now covers the full Micron offering, including the stainless steel AquaTRUE gearheads, ideal for food and packaging applications, and the XTRUEM, a drop-in replacement for common gearheads in the market today.
The new upgrade allows customers to simply enter a few key application parameters and the MicronMOTIONEERING instantly delivers all the information needed to specify and order the best gearhead for the application.
The extended capabilities of the online tool, also means it is now easier to quickly configure and download 3D models along with detailed and downloadable specifications including list price, delivery time, configuration parameters, life calculations, motor sizing and more.
The new MicronMOTIONEERING tool is available at: www.micronmotioneering.com.
