MICROMO Introduces the New FAULHABER 17/1 Series Planetary Gearhead

Ideal for applications which demand the highest torque

Thanks 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 0.1mm radial play. With the version with pre-loaded ball bearing, this can be reduced to zero. The operating temperature range is between +100 and -30 °C by default. The gearhead is also available as a low-temperature model for requirements down to -40 °C.
