Low-Backlash Planetary Gearboxes

Planetary Gearboxes That Far Surpass Industry Standards

Low-backlash planetary gearboxes made by RSGetriebe are used in highly demanding applications in which standard gearboxes can no longer meet the requirements. The gearboxes are individually developed according to the customer’s needs and, thanks to the precision with which they are manufactured, guarantee a very high power density with a minimum of running noise.

The low-backlash planetary gearboxes from Sonthofen provide immense rigidity with minimum backlash even in multi-speed models, thus guaranteeing the highest possible dynamics and precision. These gearboxes are used, among other areas, in machine tools, in printing or packaging machinery and, on request, can also be paired with a dynamic servomotor of your choice.

Options for every application

RSGetriebe equips the low-backlash planetary gearboxes with various additional features, depending on the requirements:

  • Reinforced bearings for the highest radial and axial load capacity
  • Master/Slave control for backlash-free positioning
  • Switching stages
  • Foot mounted model
  • Oil and water cooling
  • Lubricant and temperature monitoring
  • Shaft end: smooth, profile DIN 5480, keyway, complete with connecting flange

The low-backlash planetary gearboxes made by RSGetriebe are available with the following performance data:

Speed n2 rpm Up to 3,500
Torque T2 Nm Up to 5,000
Power P kW Up to 60
Ratio i   1 to 100
