With long service life and high power density, right-angle gearboxes provide advantages as a mechanical add-on to servo drive trains. The alpha LPBK+ is yet another example of proven Wittenstein engineering expertise, the company says.

Offering flexible design and available as standard in a food-grade version, the alpha LPBK+ is the low cost alternative which still guarantees maximum return. By taking the LPK+ right-angle gearbox and adding a pulley drive, Wittenstein has created an integrated solution with ultra-compact design and easy motor mounting.

Optimized for linear drives and available with flexible output variants, the LPBK+ can improve not only low-duty application designs but is also available in IP64 for food-grade applications. With a space savings of more than 40% compared to a conventional drive solution for linear applications, this product brings cost and space savings to your design.
