Thomson is launching a new series of planetary gearheads specifically designed to move large loads more easily and more quietly. Known as XTRUE, the new series uses proprietary True Planetary gearing to improve load capacity and reduce backlash.
Ted Moser, Micron Product Line Manager, says: "The XTRUE Series of precision gearheads is a cost-effective complement to the Micron True Planetary Gearhead family of products, which is already the broadest and deepest selection of planetary gearheads available in the world."
XTRUE True Planetary Gearheads are available in 40mm, 60mm, 80mm, 120mm and 160mm frame sizes and deliver precise 13 arc-min operation with torque capacity up to 876Nm and ratio availability of 3:1 to 100:1.
Users benefit from improved machine up-time with the Micron flexible RediMount mounting system. This allows the gearhead to be mounted to any motor in three easy steps: align, mount and tighten.
XTRUE True Planetary Gearheads feature a tapped face output that enables easy, drop-in replacement for similarly configured European gearheads. All XTRUE components are RoHS-compliant (EU Directive 2002/95/EC), helping users to 'go green' with their machines.
