June 6, 2014 - AutomationDirect has extended its SureGear line of precision servo gearboxes to include right-angle gear reducers. The PGB series is ideal for applications that require a more compact footprint. These right-angle planetary gear reducers offer similar technical specifications to the PGA series in-line gear reducers, and provide the customer with an excellent solution when space and clearance requirements are limited. Available in four gear ratios (5:1, 10:1, 15:1, 25:1), SureGear PGB series gear reducers feature a thread-in mounting style, helical-cut planetary gears for quiet operation, and uncaged needle roller bearings for high rigidity and torque. The maintenance-free design also features high-viscosity, anti-separation grease which does not migrate away from the gears, meaning there is no need to replace the grease for the life of the unit. The PGB series reducers can be mounted in any orientation and mounting hardware is included for attaching to SureServo motors. Offered with a six arc-min backlash rating for 2-stage and nine arc-min backlash for 3-stage, the SureGear PGB series performs to OEMs’ demanding expectations. Backed by a 5-year warranty, SureGear PGB-series servo gearbox prices start at $674.
