HIGH TORQUE gearheads: Power and precision in press transfer systems

Up to four tons per stroke and up to 30 strokes per minute – Hagel Automation transfer systems are technology leaders when it comes to moving large masses fast. Ultra-low-backlash HIGH TORQUE planetary gearheads made by WITTENSTEIN ensure the highest possible repeatability for handling processes and maximum stiffness in the drive train.

“EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH POWER DENSITY”

“EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH POWER DENSITY”

High positioning accuracy, even in extremely dynamic cyclic operation, combined with high levels of torsional and tilting rigidity – our TP+ HIGH TORQUE low-backlash planetary gearheads stand for compact precision. “Their space saving, integration-friendly design and high torques are the key to their exceptionally high power density, which is unbeaten in the market today”, says Martin Hagel, Managing Director of Hagel Automation GmbH and responsible for design and development. “These gearheads also impress with their mechanical quality and extraordinary robustness. Our transfer systems are subjected to a few million load changes a year, for instance, yet even in the harsh operating environments of large presses their availability values are very high.” His assertion is based on several decades of experience designing presses and automation solutions and partnering top press manufacturers serving the automotive industry, among others.

THREE TIMES THE SPECIFIED LIFETIME IN PRACTICE

Up to 95% efficiency has been measured for the HIGH TORQUE gearheads at full load. The noise level is less than 68 dBA – confirmation of the high quality workmanship of the gearhead components, leading to optimal tooth contact. The IP65 protection class prevents the ingress of dust and water. What’s more, these planetary gearheads are rated for temperatures of up to 90°C – and hence effectively protected against motor and ambient heat.

WITTENSTEIN: NOT SIMPLY A SUPPLIER BUT A PARTNER FOR INNOVATIONS

According to Martin Hagel, Hagel Automation “serves the premium quality segment” with its solutions for stamping, forming and automation technology. Special demands frequently have to be satisfied in both new and retrofit business, and the firm relies on innovative components like servo gearheads to implement and refine them. Confidential technical information must consequently be exchanged from the early stages of the drive and machine development process onward.
