Courtesy: Faulhaber, MicromoThanks to the sturdy construction, the Faulhaber metal planetary gearheads are ideal for applications which demand the highest torque. The new 17/1 gearhead is the latest addition to the Faulhaber gearhead product line in the 16 to 20 mm diameter range. The 17/1 gearhead is available with up to five gear stages, with standard reductions of 3.33:1 to 1,367:1.

The 17/1 series, with a diameter of 17 mm and, stainless steel housing as well as steel and hard metal Planetary Gearheads and pins, is designed for continuous torque of 550 mNm and short-term loads of up to 800 mNm. Sintered bearings provide up to 0.1 mm radial play. With the version with pre-loaded ball bearing, this can be reduced to zero. The operating temperature range is between -30 and 100 C by default. The gearhead is also available as a low-temperature model for requirements down to -40 C.
