The New FAULHABER 17/1 Series Planetary Gearhead
Thanks to the sturdy construction, the FAULHABER metal Planetary Gearheads are ideal for applications which demand the highest torque. The new 17/1 Precision Gearhead is the latest addition to the FAULHABER gearhead product line in the 16 to 20 mm diameter range. The 17/1 gearhead is available with up to five gear speeds, with standard reductions of 3.33 : 1 to 1,367 : 1.
The 17/1 series, with a diameter of 17 mm, stainless steel housing as well as steel and hard metal Planetary Gearheads and pins, is designed for continuous torque of 550 mNm and short-term loads of up to 800 mNm. Sintered bearings ensure axial shaft clearances under 0.1 mm. With the version with pre-loaded ball bearing, this can be reduced to 0 mm (if necessary). The operating temperature range is between +100 and –30 °C by default. The gearhead is also available as a low-temperature model for requirements down to –40 °C.
