New Compact Right-Angle, Flange-Mounted Planetary Gearbox

Neugart USA introduces its new compact right-angle, flange-mounted WPLFE gearbox for applications with tight space constraints and powerful torque requirements.

Charlotte, NC, November 16 - Neugart USA introduces its new compact right-angle, flange-mounted WPLFE gearbox for applications with tight space constraints and powerful torque requirements.

Depending on the frame size, this gearbox requires up to 30% less space than comparable right angle gearboxes. With lifetime lubrication and minimal installation height, WPLFE has the flexibility to mount in any direction to help optimize small spaces.
This models standardized flange interface makes it easy to mount drive components—such as pulleys, belt drives, rack-and-pinion systems, linear units and rotary tables. In addition, WPLFEs large flange output shaft diameter provides five times the torsional stiffness of an output shaft with a feather key.
WPLFE also comes with deep, low-friction groove ball bearings that produce little heat, ultimately improving the lifetime performance of your gearbox and drive.

Other benefits include:
* 94% efficiency at full load
* Operating temperatures from 25 to 90°C
* IP54 protection class
* Nominal output torque up to 260 Nm
* Radial force up to 3,800 N
* Service life of 20,000 hours
* High inertia ratio range from i=3 to i=100

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
