Thanks to the sturdy construction, FAULHABER metal Planetary Gearheads are the right choice for applications which demand high torque. The new 17/1 Precision Gearheads are an addition to the gearhead product line in the 16 to 20 mm diameter range and are available with up to five gear speeds with standard reductions of 3.33 : 1 to 1,367 : 1. The new series, with a diameter of 17 mm, 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 ensure axial shaft clearances under 0.1 mm. With the version with pre-loaded ball bearing, this can be reduced completed to 0 mm if necessary. The operating temperature range is between +100 and -30 °C by default. The gearhead is also available as a low-temperature model for down to -40 °C.
