SEW-Eurodrive has added the PSE series to its low-backlash planetary gear reducer line. Benefits of these single- and two-stage compact gear units include high torsional rigidity for accurate positioning and a high power- to-weight ratio. Optimized gearing geometry and close production tolerances provide for low-noise operation and enable the series to offer standard low circumferential backlash of 6 angular minutes. Offered in whole-number gear ratios from 4:1 to 100:1, the planetary reducers suit controls applications where encoder increments require divisible resolution values. The units are lubricated for life with synthetic lubricant for low maintenance and come with a range of easy adapter options for mounting both servo and AC motors.
