Yaskawa America, Inc.’s Drives and Motion Division recently unveiled a full line of gear motors based on its Sigma-7 servo motors. The new line brings servo motion to a variety of automation applications, especially those which require high torque at low output speeds.
- Gear motor solutions rated from a low of 50 watts to a high of 15 kilowatts
- Gear ratios from 3/1 to 50/1
- Precision helical gearing with a 40 percent greater tooth surface area for smoother, quieter, and more accurate operation
- Enhanced system of bearings, including 45 percent larger planet bearings
- Balanced, concentric shaft couplings to minimize vibration
- Documented performance, including 100 percent inspection of all gear motors and a report on noise level, vibration, backlash, accuracy, and drive back torque
