Thomson introduces Micron MOTIONEERING®, a new web-based sizing and selection tool for Micron TRUE Planetary™ Gearheads. Micron MOTIONEERING offers “Select by Model Number” or “Sizing and Selection” modes to deliver downloadable 2D and 3D models, expected life calculations, as well as pricing, ordering and delivery information to help machine builders quickly specify the right gearhead to satisfy specific application performance requirements. For users who need it fast, Micron MOTIONEERING also lists all of the size and ratio combinations that are available to ship within 24 hours via the Gearhead Express Program.
Using the “Sizing and Selection” option, users simply enter key technical requirements in a few simple steps, and Micron MOTIONEERING delivers the optimized gearhead solution. Alternately, machine builders who already know the gearhead they need can simply use the “Select by Model Number” option to enter a product line, frame size, ratio and RediMount Motor Mounting System. Micron MOTIONEERING then delivers a specific single part number, pricing and delivery information, as well as a downloadable 2D and 3D model.
The flexible Micron RediMount™ mounting system enables the specified gearhead to be mounted to any of hundreds of the most popular motors available in the industry today in three easy steps — simply align, mount and tighten.
