Gear reducer

September 2, 2006




A unique lubrication concept makes the LP+/LPB+ Value Line series of gearheads reliable and maintenance free for life, says Alpha, the manufacturer. For less demanding applications, the gear reducers provide efficiency with low tortional backlash. The LPB+ offers the option of adding an integrated geared pulley drive system. The belt pulley eliminates the need for a right-angle gearbox, coupling and/or additional bearings. The gear reducers achieve more than 95% efficiency at full load. The two-stage reducer restricts torsional backlash to less than 10 arcminutes, while the single-stage version operates at less than 8 arcminutes.
