Pittman® Motors, part of the AMETEK Precision Motion Control division, has introduced a new compact planetary gearbox as an addition to their extensive line of DC motor and gearmotor products.
The G30A planetary gearbox incorporates sintered steel planet gears to promote high torque capacity and low audible noise while maintaining a compact design.
Single piece carrier plates with integral gear posts and sun gear can be arranged to achieve many different reduction ratios.
The gearbox output is through a 416 stainless steel shaft and a sintered metal output bearing.
The G30A gearbox is a perfect complement to the Pittman 8220, 8690, 8540, 9230, and 1300 Series brush and brushless DC motors, states the company. When the G30A is combined with the latest motor materials and manufacturing technology such as high energy neodymium magnets, silicon lamination steel, and advanced winding techniques to maximize slot fill, a high efficiency system is created perfectly suited for high-tech motion applications.
The Pittman motor line spans a wide variety of dc motor sizes and technologies ranging from 12mm diameter brushless slotless dc motors used in high speed medical applications to large NEMA frame dc servo motors used in sophisticated automation equipment.
Pittman also offers a wide variety of complementary products such as gearboxes, encoders, brakes, and drive systems.
