Product Announcement from CGI, Inc.
While technology has advanced and there are many new ways to accomplish useful motion within particular applications, electric motors and gearheads are still the preferred and most popular choices for power transmission throughout commercial, industrial, and automation applications. This article offers valuable insight into Input and Output Power, Options, Software and Gear Type comparisons.
Motors are the components that convert electrical power to useful mechanical power. Gearheads transform the mechanical rotary power to the desired combination of speed and torque if the motor cannot do so directly. Benefits of this combination include low cost, simplicity, reliability, and versatility
CGI delivered the goods when NASA required a robust precision gearhead to drive its high-torque wrench on the Hubble Telescope repair mission
