Thomson has introduced a system that enables its true planetary gearheads to be connected to any manufacturer’s drive motor in a fast, simple and reliable manner.

The Redimount system allows machine and component manufacturers to to select the optimum combination of gearheads and motors for each and every application.

The modular system enables gearheads and the mounting system to be stocked separately, which reduces associated costs.

All Thomson Micron gearheads use an identical Redimount system, which guarantees that components are always compatible.

The Redimount system features a self-centring hub.

This ensures absolute concentricity between the motor shaft and gearhead pinion shaft eliminating the possibility of excessive wear on components during operation.

Another feature of Redimount is the pre-assembled pinion, which eliminates the need for the time-consuming pinion positioning process and a frequent source of error resulting from motor mounting.

Using the Redimount system, the motor and gearhead can be mounted in just a few steps.

To start, the supplied adapter sleeve is inserted into the terminal hub of the gearhead.

The gearhead drive shaft’s input gear (pinion) is then pushed onto the motor shaft with the clamping hub.

The two screws from the terminal hub are then securely fastened through the mounting opening in the Redimount adapter flange.

In the final step, the motor flange is tightly screwed to the gearhead housing with the supplied screws.

The advance also extends to linear motion.

Thomson’s linear drive units are supplied with the Redimount system as standard so that any servo motor can be specified without incurring any additional expense.

As the Redimount adapter flange is precisely tailored to the dimensions of the provided motor, the length of the drive block will always remain unmodified – meaning that engineers are not faced with any problems associated with the mounting position during subsequent motor replacements.
