AERS Full Stainless Right Angle Planetary Gearheads

Built for washdown environments, food handling, above food line, beverage – dairy, soft drink, beer, pharmaceutical , corrosive environments. The AERS series features high torque capacity helical gearing, smooth, quiet operation, low backlash, high radial load capacity and continuous/high cycle rate capability.
The AES/AERS series also includes Apex’s patented input bearing technology that perfectly centers the pinion, or sun gear, directly in the center of the planet gears. This ensures equal load sharing on each of the planet gears, driving better accuracy, smoother quieter operation, lower torque ripple and lower transmission error, while increasing longevity and decreasing wear.
