High positional accuracy in a zero-backlash gearhead
Built for OEM robotic applications, the SHD Gearhead Size 14 has a 1.5 arc-min positional accuracy and ±5 arc-sec repeatability. It has a high-precision harmonic drive gearing and high-capacity cross roller bearing, with a rated torque of 33 inches-lb and a maximum torque of 310 inches-lb. It has an outer diameter of 70 mm, is only 17 mm long, and comes in 50:1 and 100:1 gear ratios. It has necessary motion control components like the harmonic drive gear and the cross roller bearing, which allows it to be incorporated into the machine housing.
