Expanding on its range of servo worm reducers, Atlanta is adding a high torque, economy and basic version, each based on the company's existing high-precision servo worm reducers. The high torque version has 150 percent of the ordinary reducer's torque capacity, with a backlash level at less than one arc-minute. It has increased bearing capacity and an option for flanged connections. The economy model has a less than six arc-minute backlash, and saves money with a simplified housing and assembly. The basic version has 90 percent of the standard reducers' torque capacity, and a backlash of less than 12 arc-minutes. There are four levels of precision available, plus a wide range of motor couplings and mounting flanges for mounting virtually any servo motor.
