Innovative gearboxes are now even more versatile
Renowned for its experience in aerospace gearbox, motor, sensor and electronics design, Wittenstein has extended its Galaxie gearbox range with four different variants, providing maximum flexibility. Furthermore, new and versatile sizes expand the mechatronic solution space for applications with special performance or installation requirements.
The Galaxie D Drive System is a compact mechatronic unit comprised of a Galaxie G hollow-shaft gearbox and a special permanent magnet, high performance synchronous motor. Water cooling and an encoder system are standard; the holding brake is a useful additional feature. The same applies to the optional sensors, which allow operating data to be transmitted to an IoT cloud. This data can in future be accessed anywhere and on any device throughout the drive lifecycle, regardless of the control system.
The Galaxie DF Drive System boasts an up to 30% reduction in length compared to the Galaxie D. This space saving is possible because the motor is positioned radially around the gearbox. The new Galaxie generation provides performance features which are superior torque density and zero backlash kinematics.
The Galaxie GH meets application requirements for installation wherever the space for the length of the driven axis is limited. The right-angle version offers the same performance as the Galaxie G, so that the drive design is not compromised in any way. At the heart of all Galaxie versions is the Galaxie G hollow-shaft gearbox, whose innovative kinematics follow a logarithmic spiral and give the new generation its name. Galaxie G lets customers realise their own motor-gearbox units. The servo motors can be mounted to the Galaxie G using the standard adapter plates in Wittenstein’s alpha’s modular toolkit.
The new Galaxie D Drive System in size 085 is designed for use in axes with very high compactness and precision requirements. It also particularly targets applications where high torsional rigidity and freedom from backlash are called for rather than torque.
