EXCELLENT Geared Motors. Watt Drive gearboxes and geared motors will be the electro-mechanical key elements for low backlash, efficiently running and highly powerful drive systems.
Our planetary gearbox high-performance gear devices are designed to withstand the toughest industrial applications.
The gear housings are machined on all sides and permit diverse installation positions and applications, making them much sought after in the industry. Consequently our geared motors tend to be to be found within our customers own machines.
The smooth running of Watt Drive gear units and the outstanding load capacity of WATT teeth are achieved with 3D design supported simply by FEM (Finite Element Method). This tooth geometry guarantees optimum rolling contact under load.
The special tooth root style in combination with tooth helix angle, tooth depth, the materials used and surface finish maximizes load capacity. This high gearing capacity allows smaller wheels to be used for the same torque, and smaller sized gears with remarkable power density also increase reliability. Watt Drive geared motors are consequently amazing space savers.
Gearing manufactured with such micro-geometric precision allows the gearing perform required for troublefree rolling contact to be substantially decreased and therefore the gear backlash to become minimized.
Double chamber shaft seals developed by Watt Drive are utilized as standard in parallel shaft, shaft installed and helical worm gears for a high level of tightness.
