metal planetary gearhead

Faulhaber extends its new Series R metal planetary gearhead portfolio beyond the existing 20/1R by introducing the new 26/1R and 32/3R Series gearheads. These new products with 26mm and 32mm diameter represent the evolution of previous 26/1 and 32/3 gearheads maintaining the same geometry to guarantee mechanical compatibility with their predecessors.

As outcome, the output power available for impulsive cycle operation has been more than doubled compared to the previous generation. Such performance improvements were made possible through deep design analysis, extensive testing and meticulous validation.

26/1R and 32/R significantly improves the input speed by achieving continuous input speed respectively up to 9,000rpm and 8,000rpm, resulting in an impressive 100 per cent increase. In intermittent operation conditions, the input speed can reach up to 10,000rpm and 9,000rpm to exploit at best DC or Brushless motor capability. Maximum output torque has also been enhanced to exhibit up to 4 Nm and up to 8 Nm in continuous operation.

The gearheads are available with one to five stages, and the span of the 13 possible reduction gear ratios ranges from 3.7:1 to 1526:1. The output shaft has no axial play thanks to the preloaded ball bearing. They are able to operate in the typical temperature range conditions of -10°C to +125°C and options are also available for lower temperature like -45°C to +100°C. 26/1R and 32/3R can be combined with many motors using various technologies like DC motors, brushless motors and stepper motors with diameter starting from 23 mm up to 35 mm.

EMS (Electro Mechanical Systems)

EMS was founded in mid-1985 and quickly established itself as the leading supplier of high-quality precision small DC motors and linear actuators. We are sole UK distributors for the whole Faulhaber Group, including Minimotor, Precistep, MPS and Piezomotor; manufacturers and suppliers of precision micro-drives, including DC motors; brushless motors; stepper motors; linear motors and associated gearheads and encoders.

Complementary products include iron-core DC motors from KAG, stepper motors and brushed DC motors from Nidec Servo and brushed and brushless gear motors from Nidec Motors & Actuators. In addition we distribute high quality linear actuators and telescopic columns from SKF and Mingardi, used extensively in medical; healthcare; agriculture; building automation and many other industries.

With sustained growth we looked to diversify our product offering and in 1990 established our own manufacturing facility. Growth has been maintained with repeated expansion culminating in the acquisition of an eighth unit in 2010 resulting in an overall floor area to 2,200m². We have a large capacity machine shop equipped with the latest CNC machine tools and a dedicated gear cutting suite, as well as substantial assembly area. EMS offers design engineers a complete service; our scope of supply stretches from the supply of proprietary motors, gearheads, encoders and actuation devices, right the way through to added value in the way of pinions and wiring looms, to bespoke design and manufacture of complete drive mechanisms and actuation systems to meet your exact applications needs.

Located across two sites, our Head office, design and manufacturing is based in Poole, Dorset and sales, order processing, administration and warehousing located in Aldermaston, Berkshire.

Our commitment to quality and service remains as strong as ever and is reflected in our management system and strong emphasis on continuous improvement, resulting in our accreditation to EN ISO9001:2008 at both sites.
