Six Tips for Choosing A Planetary Gearhead

Comments Off on Six Tips for Choosing A Planetary Gearhead

Download this white paper nowWhen a motor is being designed into a motion control system, all too often the benefits of a gearhead are realized much too late. Designing in a gearhead at the end of the project will many times cause delay and additional cost, which could have been prevented if it had been considered at the start of the project. Understanding all of the advantages that a gearhead can provide becomes a necessity when designing a successful motion control project.

Among the many reasons engineers should choose a planetary gearhead for their motion project are for improvements in system response, inertia matching, speed matching, system stiffness, and system resolution.
