July 27, 2016 - High precision gearing specialist, Harmonic Drive UK, has launched IridiumLine, a new series of lightweight gears featuring a hollow shaft with a diameter up to 60 percent of the total gear diameter. The design has been achieved without restricting torque capacity, making the IridiumLine ideal for applications such as industrial, robotics, military, defence and aerospace, where the light weight and compact, high precision gear offers the ultimate integration and reliability.
IridiumLine gears are available in sizes 14 to 58 with gear reductions between 30:1 and 460:1. Lengths range from 19-61mm and external diameters between 50-195mm. The series offers repeatable peak torques of up to 1300Nm with hollow shaft diameters up to 115mm. Depending on application requirements, the gear is available in two precision classes, BL3, with three angular minutes of backlash and BL1, with one angular minute of backlash.
For extreme loads, IridiumLine gears can be lubricated with Harmonic Drive grease or oil to achieve continuous operation in extreme environments between temperatures of -50 to over 200 degrees Celsius.
