Why are Food Grade Planetary Gearboxes In Demand ?

In the present situation automated machinery is being used in food product processing and packaging more frequently than ever. With these applications, servo control is becoming a must for flexible and high-speed machine operations and the need to select the right precision gearbox to suit is paramount.

With processing machine operators facing increasing requirements to keep the manufacturing environment clean and contamination free, stainless steel gearboxes are becoming a more viable option for servo applications to enable wash- down procedures without the risk of corrosion or potentially toxic contamination from paint peel

The New Agv Gearbox Series With Low Backlash Helical Gears

Apex Dynamics as a world class manufacturer of low-backlash gearboxes, racks and pinions received more and more questions about which gearbox is ideal for an Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) application?

We have now developed a series of gearboxes specifically for this type of mobile robot application, theĀ GL series is a high-end gearbox range which complements the existing PD/PDR and the PL/PLR ranges and offers a number of technical advantages.

The GL series is designed with high precision helical gears with a maximum backlash of 3 arc minutes for a single stage ratio. With this series, the flange and the housing are made from one rotating part, making it ideal for direct mounting and supporting of the drive wheel without getting high bending moments.
