Maxon Precision Motors recently introduced right angle gearheads designed to be configured with Maxon’s 22 mm and 32 mm DC motors. These compact, lightweight and high torque gearheads were developed to transmit power at 90 degrees in the smallest possible form factor.
The Spiroid technology incorporated in the gearhead design offers a number of performance benefits, including low backlash, high torque transmission and low deflection with large applied loads.
The 22 mm and 32 mm right angle gearheads are available in either a 4:1 or 31:1 ratio, which may be mounted directly onto Maxon’s brushed/brushless motors or configured with different ratios of Maxon’s GP22 and GP32 planetary gearheads. This results in a range of achievable gear reductions. The motor and gearhead combinations are suited for a variety of applications particularly where an output shaft perpendicular to the motor axis is desired.
