Gear solutions for robotics and mechanical engineering unveiled at Automatica

The Automatica trade fair will take place in Munich from 21-24 June 2022, and Nabtesco will also be there with what it says will be a real game changer for robotics, as well as its new high-torque gearboxes for heavy loads.

In Hall B6, Booth 311 Nabtesco will present three innovations: the servo gearboxes of the Neco series, the new Neco HT high-torque gears and the new precision gears of the Zeta series.

Nabtesco developed the solid and hollow shaft gearboxes of the new Zeta series especially for robotics. The main characteristic is their extremely high rigidity. Compared to the gears of the RV-N and RV-C series, they feature up to 20 percent higher bending and torsional rigidity, respectively, resulting in improved precision. The modular gear concept also ensures maximum flexibility, availability and cost effectiveness. The first models specially designed for robotics are already available, and the product portfolio will be successively expanded.

The user-friendly gears of Nabtesco’s Neco series have made robot technology accessible in conventional machine and plant engineering. The ready-to-install servo gearboxes are said to set standards with respect to design, corrosion protection, motor interface and modularity, in order to achieve huge leaps in performance. Now the cycloidal gear specialist has expanded the successful series to include models that are dimensioned for heavy-duty applications.

Neco HT high-torque gearboxes deliver torques of 3,800 to 7,000 Nm and guarantee high-precision positioning in applications with high weights and forces. They feature a high level of modularity and standardisation, which ensures cost-effective series production and high availability. Neco HT high-torque gears are currently in prototype status.

In addition to these new gears, Nabtesco will also present a selection of the company’s broad automation products at Automatica. The products will include rotary indexers of the RS series, zero backlash OVALO strain wave gears, the world’s largest precision gearbox (RV-2800N), and a fully integrated and decentralised wheel drive unit, as well as a preview of future condition monitoring concepts for real-time monitoring of robots.
