With the first low backlash SP planetary gearboxes from Wittenstein Alpha in 1983, a new era of decentralized drive technology began. Since then, more than two million low-backlash planetary gears have been produced. The latest high-performance version SP + High Speed, presented at Motek, is suitable for use in applications with maximum requirements for the highest speeds in continuous operation.
Backlash-free galaxy drive system
In spring 2015, Wittenstein made the step from zero backlash to zero backlash with the Galaxie drive system - another highlight among the exhibits at this year's Motek.

Planetary gear in a hygienic design
Wittenstein Alpha implemented the requirements of the food processing and packaging industry in 2013 with the world's first hygiene design planetary gear with EHEDG1 certification. They support the hygienic machine construction as well as the safe processing, filling or packaging operation.
Linear actuators with a patented lubrication concept
Converting rotary movements into linear movements is the job of the Cyber Force Motors linear actuators from Wittenstein Cyber Motor. A special feature of these linear actuators with a fully integrated threaded spindle is their patented lubrication concept, which enables the spindle to be relubricated during operation without any maintenance-related downtime of the machine.

Gearboxes are the link between the engine and the application. Depending on the requirements, there are different designs on the market. Here we dedicate ourselves to the planetary gear and present the functionality, advantages and applications
Maul Konstruktionen has developed a special kit for Evoloid planetary gears with three planets. This should make it possible to achieve significantly higher reduction ratios per stage than with conventional planetary gears as well as very high efficiencies
SEW-Eurodrove presents the PxG modular system for high-precision planetary servo gear units. Typical areas of application are handling applications in the field of robotics and automation as well as in tool and woodworking machines
Servotecnica now also has low-backlash spur gear planetary gearboxes from Reckon. These should convince with extreme smoothness. The company offers a total of six different series of planetary gears
The overall economic view of a drive solution with planetary gears should be considered as a risk assessment, because: The optimal planetary gear can in many cases consist of prefabricated components of a modular system
