  • Six Tips for Choosing a Planetary Gearhead
    Considering the need for a gearhead early in the design stage of a motion application will save time and effort (and headaches) further down the road.
  • Planetary Gearheads Key to Advances in Medical Applications (.pdf)
    Micron gearheads are used widely across a huge range of engineering sectors in order to provide efficient, accurate and reliable gear reduction. Since the development of the true planetary gearhead by Micron, however, interest has spread into the medical devices sector. So much so that they are now
  • Gearhead Construction and Use
    Gearhead Construction and Use. Spur Gear Type Gearheads. Direction of Rotation. Planetary Gears. Spur Gear Type Gearheads. Spur gear type gearheads are probably the best possible choice for relatively low torque applications. They tend to be less expensive than comparably sized planetary gearheads
  • Understanding, Selecting and Applying Planetary Gearheads
    Planetary gears provide an excellent solution for a wide range of precision motion control applications. Understanding the backlash measurement used by the gearhead manufacturer is important to selecting the best gearhead for the application. Online selection and sizing tools can save design
  • Spur versus planetary gearheads for dc servomotors
    are available with integrated spur or planetary gearboxes in single and multistage models. Dc servomotors with built-in gearheads can provide a more cost-effective solution in a smaller package than an assembly of separate components. However, determining which type of gearhead is appropriate
  • Artificial stars created with laser technology.
    Southern Observatory (ESO). The so-called "Optical Tube Assemblies" are complex projection systems for generating artificial stars. A high-precision drive system with two brushless maxon flat motors, planetary gearhead with spindle and encoder ensures accurate positioning of the laser.
  • Small motors position big glass
    Optical assemblies are precisely positioned using a miniature dc motor, encoder, and a low-backlash planetary gearhead. The most powerful stand-alone telescope in the world goes into operation this year on Mt. Graham near Safford, Ariz. Astronomers are particularly interested in setting
  • Flexible gears minimize gearhead backlash for life
    Timing-belt tensioning and planetary gearheads that maintain out-of-box backlash levels for life are just some of the topics covered in this mechanical reference guide. HPG Series Harmonic Planetary gearheads from HD Systems Inc., Hauppauge, N.Y., come in three frame sizes and ratios from 5:1
