EXCELLENT Geared Motors. Watt Drive gearboxes and geared motors are the electro-mechanical key elements for low backlash, easily running and highly dynamic drive systems.
Our high-performance gear devices are designed to withstand the toughest industrial applications.
The apparatus housings are machined on all sides and invite diverse mounting positions and applications, making them much popular in the industry. Consequently our geared motors are often to be found within our customers own machines.
The smooth running of Watt Drive gear units and the outstanding load planetary gearbox capacity of WATT teeth are achieved with 3D design supported by FEM (Finite Element Method). This tooth geometry ensures optimum rolling contact under load.
The special tooth root style in combination with tooth helix angle, tooth depth, the materials used and surface finish maximizes load capacity. This high gearing capacity allows smaller wheels to be utilized for the same torque, and smaller sized gears with remarkable power density can also increase reliability. Watt Drive geared motors are consequently incredible space savers.
Gearing produced with such micro-geometric precision allows the gearing play necessary for troublefree rolling contact to be substantially reduced and then the gear backlash to be minimized.
Dual chamber shaft seals developed by Watt Drive are utilized as standard in parallel shaft, shaft mounted and helical worm gears for a high level of tightness.
