Exsys Tool Inc. has expanded its line of Eppinger high-precision industrial gearboxes to include planetary-type gearboxes. The planetary range provides energy efficiency, minimal heat generation and smooth motion for a variety of applications and industries.

Standard planetary gearboxes are available in PE (planetary eco) and PP (planetary precision) styles for applications that require low backlash, high efficiency, shock resistance and a high-torque-to-weight ratio. With a modular design that combines ground gears and precision gear components, these gearboxes ensure performance efficiency and maximum uptime. They also use less energy and mount to a variety of motors through a flexible flange system.

The present range of planetary gearboxes comprises five sizes, with each size offered as a single, dual or triple stage design. Each gearbox variant is also available as a precision design with reduced backlash.

  • Speeding Up Splines

    Moving small- to medium-batch production from outsourced, dedicated hobbing operations to in-house, CNC multitasking machines helps job shops achieve quick turnarounds and flexibility in supplying splines for the heavy-vehicle industry. Inserted disc cutters make this transition possible.

  • DFGT - Double Flank Gear Testing

    Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.

  • Gearing Up to Make Big Gears

    Over the years, this Indiana job shop/contract manufacturer developed a specialty in gear making. Now it is taking this specialty to a grander scale. Two large machines for high-precision internal gear grinding are the main anchors of the company’s new precision grinding room.
