Boston Gear Planetary Gear Drives
    • Due to the load sharing attributes of multiple tooth contacts,planetary gearboxes provide the highest torque and stiffness for any given envelope 
    • Balanced planetary kinematics at high speeds combined with the associated load sharing make planetary-type gearheads ideal for servo applications
    • True helical technology provides increased tooth to tooth contact ratio by 33% vs. spur gearing 12¡ helix angle produces smooth and quiet operation
    • One piece planet carrier and output shaft design reduces backlash
    • Single step machining process
    • Assures 100% concentricity Increases torsional rigidity
    • Efficient lubrication for life
