Right handed gearhead is a rugged all-rounder

The LPK Plus from Alpha is a range of right-angled gearheads offering high power density, a torsional backlash limited to 10 arc minutes, high continuous speeds and rugged output bearings to prolong service life. The LPK Plus represents an attractive alternative technology to servo worms or bevel spur gearheads for servo motors.


Alpha says this gearhead provides the perfect solution in applications where economic efficiency is a top priority, without compromising on quality. It is suitable for any operating mode, installation position or motor type and is also included in Cymex - Alpha's sizing software. Designers can use this software to optimise applications and verify such aspects as capacity utilisation, service life and motor mounting.


The LPK Plus can optionally be supplied with the Alpha rack and pinion system or shaft couplings solutions. Courtesy of the universal motor mounting system, the gearhead can be mounted to any servo motor in just five minutes, says the company. From positioning feed axes through motorised auxiliary axes, to heavy-duty loading axes and economical rotary axes, the LPK Plus is a stable and versatile performer in any application that must meet exacting productivity and reliability requirements yet still remain affordable.
