Planetary Gearhead Is Silent and Powerful

Maxon’s (Booth 545) patent-protected coaxial drive combines the best of two gearing technologies, worm and planetary. Measuring 32 mm in diameter with a torque of 6.5 Nm and speeds of up to 8,000 rpm, this unique torque conversion makes operation very quiet even with high loads. These low-noise combinations are ideal for compact, noise-sensitive, highly demanding applications such as hand tools and instruments used principally on or near patients in the medical technology sector.
