alpha gear's TK+ is a low-backlash right-angle gearhead with a hollow-shaft flange that provides improved performance as well as space reduction. Compared to beveled gears, hypoid gear technology provides increased torque (up to 200 percent) and lower noise (because of a larger pitch angle), and increased productivity (based on 100 percent higher speeds). Efficiency of the single stage unit is 96 percent and the two-stage unit is 94 percent. The gearhead's low torsional backlash of less than 4 arcmin and high torsional stiffness provide positioning accuracy for operations with up to 50,000 cycles/hr. Reduction ratios for the single-stage unit are 3, 4, 5, 7 or 10 and for the two-stage units are 16, 20, 25, 28, 35, 40, 50, 70 or 100. Designed for cyclic and continuous operation, the gearheads target servo applications in machine tools, automation, packaging and printing.
