AutomationDirect Introduces SureGear PGA Series
February 13, 2013—AutomationDirect’s new SureGear PGA series of high-precision servo gear reducers is a suitable choice for applications requiring accuracy and reliability. Offered in a concentric shaft design with a maximum five arc-min backlash rating, the SureGear PGA series is an accurate, high-performance, and cost-effective solution for applications such as gantries, injection-molding machines, conveyors, and more. The in-line planetary gear reducers are available in four gear ratios (5, 10, 15, 25:1) and feature thread-in mounting with industry-standard mounting dimensions. Additional features include helical-cut planetary gears for quiet operation and reduced vibration, and uncaged needle roller bearings provide high rigidity and torque. Mountable in any direction, the PGA series is maintenance-free with no need to replace the grease for the life of the unit. SureGear PGA series prices start at $398 and are backed with a five-year warranty.
