CGI Inc., a leading manufacturer of custom precision gearboxes and mechanical IP69K CGI Raptor Gearboxsubassemblies, now sells a new line of IP69K-rated precision planetary gearheads. These Raptor-SS series gearheads are washdown ready and built with advanced heat-treated materials — with stainless-steel construction or a white epoxy coating.

Raptor-SS gearheads are compact (with lengths from 3.39 to 7.63 in.) and have a captive input pinion; high-torque gear geometry; and exceptional stiffness and loading characteristics. They can mount in any direction and accept input speeds to 6,500 rpm. Service life exceeds 15,000 hours.

The IP69K-rated gearheads come in:

  • One, two, or three-stage configurations (with backlash of 4, 6, and 8 arc-min. respectively) to deliver speed-reduction ratios of 4:1 to 700:1 — with other ratios possible from the three-stage version
    • Standard NEMA and metric configurations — and with other features for quick installation
    • Versions with food-grade grease for food-related applications

Efficiencies are better than 95% for single-stage gearheads, 90% for two-stage gearheads, and 85% for three-stage gearheads in the Raptor-SS series. Operating range is -40° to +250° F.

Raptor-SS gearheads in 023RTX (NEMA) and 060RTX (metric) sizes deliver nominal torques of 17 to 45 Nm; maximum acceleration torques of 22 to 53 Nm; and peak emergency-stop torques of 81 to 107 Nm. Torsional stiffness is 15 arc-min.

Raptor-SS gearheads in 034RTX (NEMA) and 090RTX (metric) sizes deliver nominal torques of 63 to 164 Nm; maximum acceleration torques of 80 to 207 Nm; and peak emergency-stop torques of 277 to 392 Nm. Torsional stiffness is 70 arc-min.

CGI Raptor IPK69P GearboxesBesides stock products, CGI Inc. also supplies customized gear solutions. The manufacturer’s in-house capabilities include:

  • Engineering and design support from initial design and prototyping to full-scale production — collaborating with OEMs to design manufacturable components that meet or exceed design parameters
    • Design and assembly of complete gearboxes with grinding, turning, milling, Swiss-type, and diverse machining capabilities to customize various geared designs
    • Heat treating, laser welding, and electrical discharge machining (EDM)
    • Execution of testing and validation to help customers get industry approvals; support of inventory management and KANBAN integration to streamline supply-chain management

The new Raptor SS precision planetary gearhead from CGI Inc. offers stainless-steel construction and IP65-rated sealing for a washdown-ready design that is suitable in food and beverage and other sanitary applications.
The planetary gearhead also has high stiffness to withstand high loading — as well as gear geometry to transmit high torque. Components are made of advanced materials that get specialty heat treatment for durability.

There are also versions of the planetary gearhead that come with a white epoxy coating and optional food-grade grease for food-related applications.

The Raptor SS has features that simplify installation; it can mount in any direction and has a captive input pinion. NEMA and metric configurations are standard.

Maximum input speed for the planetary gearhead is 6,500 rpm. Service life exceeds 15,000 hours. Maximum backlash (arc-min) is 4 (for the one-stage design), 6 (for the two-stage design), and 8 (for the three-stage design). In addition:
• Efficiency for the one-stage design is better than 95%
• Efficiency for the two-stage design is better than 90%
• Efficiency for the three-stage design is better than 85%
