New pure metal GPT gearheads from FAULHABER MICROMO feature performance values comparable to more expensive technologies on the market like ceramic components. The gearheads are available in diameters of 22, 32 and 42 mm. Compared to predecessor models, the continuous input speed was more than doubled above 10,000 rpm, and can support input speeds up to 20,000 rpm in intermittent mode. The 42GPT Series can sustain an intermittent torque up to 25 Nm while its length is squeezed down to 71 mm. The GPT gearheads are designed to be extremely robust and tolerate both continuous as well as abrupt and sudden load changes. At the same time, they are significantly shorter than other models in the same diameter.
￼ The gearheads can be equipped with up to four reduction stages. Each stage is individually optimized to achieve the highest power in terms of torque and speed. An important feature of the product family is the high number of available gear ratios and their uniform distribution. As a result, the motor power can be used optimally; a higher torque can be achieved with the same input speed; a higher speed can be achieved with the same torque. In addition, power consumption is significantly reduced through a much higher efficiency compared to previous product generations. The new GPT family is also particularly well suited for accurate positioning applications granted by a low backlash characteristic.
￼ With high performance values and the great robustness, the new gearheads are suitable for various demanding applications. Their compact design fits particularly well with the new BXT brushless flat motor family when size is a key constraint for integrating actuators inside applications. A large selection of dc motors is also available in combination with the new GPT gearhead family. They are ideal for different types of robots – inspection, assembly, rehabilitation or exoskeletons – as well as for production and laboratory automation, for packaging machines, measurement and testing equipment or for semiconductor handling.
