December 16, 2019 – Faulhaber introduced a metal GPT planetary gearhead family characterized by its fine graduations of the gear ratios. It tolerates both frequent as well as sudden load changes. The gearheads can be combined with many different motors and enable various shaft configurations.
The pure metal GPT gearheads achieve performance values comparable to more expensive technologies on the market like ceramic components. The gearheads are available with diameters of 22, 32 and 42 millimeters. Compared to the predecessor models, the continuous input speed was more than doubled above 10’000 rpm, and can support input speeds up to 20,000 rpm in intermittent mode. The 42GPT Series can sustain an intermittent torque up to 25 Nm while its length is squeezed down to 71 millimetres. The GPT gearheads are designed to tolerate both continuous as well as very abrupt and sudden load changes.
The gearheads can be equipped with up to four reduction. The GPT family is also particularly suited for accurate positioning applications granted by a very low backlash characteristic.
