Thu 25th Jan 2018 - SP plus and TP plus low backlash planetary gearheads

Higher output torques and maximum speeds with a larger range of ratios - these are the essential improvements featured in the new SP plus and TP plus low-backlash planetary gearboxes from Wittenstein.
The gearboxes offer increased power density which enables optimal utilisation of the motor's capacity and hence even more dynamic processes. The outcome is shorter machine cycle times and higher productivity. What's more, the expected life can now be taken into account for the first time when designing the gearboxes. This customising option helps Wittenstein stand out from the market standard and creates a unique selling point for the SP plus and TP plus planetary gearheads.

Advanced Linear Systems with SP plus and TP plus planetary gearboxes are adequate for mid-range to high requirements. They are excellent value for money and can also be combined with the High Torque and High Speed gearhead variants.

All linear systems with a rack and pinion have been completely re-engineered and made adaptable to each customer's specific requirements in terms of smooth running, positioning accuracy and feed forces. Thanks to the new linear systems, Wittenstein now provides solutions for all axes. Preferred linear systems - available for all classes and with different output ratings - speed up the selection process and are always comprised of a gearhead, rack, pinion and lubrication system in an ideal combination. Preferred linear systems can be configured with INIRA® - the simple, fast and efficient assembly option for racks and with Cymex® 5, the sizing software, configuring the linear systems is even easier.
