Maxon Motors recently introduced the GP 6 S, a micro spindle gear with a diameter of six millimeters that is now also available in a metal version to provide a spindle drive with optimized value.
Spindle drives are designed for linear positioning systems, lens adjustment, or syringe pumps. Maxon Motor’s GP 6 S spindle gear is meant for use in compact spaces. To provide a cost-effective alternative to the ceramic version, it is now also available with a metal spindle.
The GP 6 S spindle gear is suitable for a wide variety of linear drive solutions. The maximum feed velocity is 15 mm/s at a force of 10 N. Integrated ball bearings ensure that this drive stands up to high axial loads. The gear can combine with the maxon DC brushed motor (RE 6) and DC brushless motor (EC 6).
