Lenze Adds New g700 Planetary Gearbox Series for Use with Synchronous and Asynchronous Servo Motors

New purebred servo gearboxes are available in five sizes for torques from 177 in-lbs to 7080 in-lbs
Leading global manufacturer of electrical and mechanical drives, motion control and automation technology, Lenze Americas has unveiled its g700 series of purebred planetary gearboxes designed for servo applications with demanding requirements relative to overload capacity and dynamics. The new gearbox series extends the company’s range of solutions for servo motor applications. The g700 can be used in conjunction with Lenze’s synchronous and asynchronous servo motors, as well as a single gearbox with a servo motor. Designed specifically for servo application, the one-, two- and three-stage planetary gearboxes are available in five sizes and cover torques ranging from 177i n-lbs to 7080 in-lbs.
The special handling of the toothing edge, which includes grinding and honing, and the precise, balanced clamping system for the motor, help to minimize the noise generation. As a result, a noise of ≤58 dB(A) is achievable which corresponds to a quiet conversation. The g700 is a gearbox with lowest life-cycle costs. The gearbox is robust and reliable and achieves a service life of 30.000h. It does not need lubricant change or top up and is completely maintenance-free.
“Our growing solutions portfolio is scalable and precisely tailored to the requirements of servo applications,” said Robert Gradischnig, electro-mechanical business development manager, Lenze.
“This new g700 planetary gearbox is another step forward in our ‘easy engineering’ philosophy. Whether they need products for relatively simple machine tasks or highly complex ones, our customers can easily find the right solution for their application.”
