Compact WPLFE gearbox takes second place in i-NOVO Tech Awards
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—A compact right-angle planetary gearbox manufactured by Neugart USA is said to require up to 30 percent less space than comparable right angle gearboxes, depending on the frame size. Besides being suited for applications with tight space constraints and powerful torque requirements, the new flange-mounted WPLFE gearbox "has the flexibility to mount in any direction to help optimize small spaces," the company reported in a press release. The WPLFE took second place in voting for the i-NOVO Tech Awards at the recently concluded SPS-IPC Drives trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany.
This model has a standardized flange interface that makes it easy to mount drive components, such as pulleys, belt drives, rack-and-pinion systems, linear units, and rotary tables. The WPLFE's large flange output shaft diameter is reported to provide five times the torsional stiffness of an output shaft with a feather key. It also comes with deep, low-friction groove ball bearings that produce little heat, ultimately improving the lifetime performance of the gearbox and drive, according to the manufacturer. The WPLFE gearbox, capable of operating at temperatures from 25° to 90° C, is said to have a service life of 20,000 hours.
