Press release | A gearbox for all motors

Neco®: Innovative modular system for motor adaptation. As variable speed torque converters, Nabtesco precision gears are a central component of servo gear motors. They are designed for fast and easy integration in the drive train and can be operated with all standard servo motors. Especially the servo gearboxes of the new Neco® series are setting new standards with respect to motor adaptation. The key: a flexible modular system.

Whenever a gearbox and motor need to be connected, there is always the issue of which interface to use, because without an adapter it is impossible to connect the two main components in the drive train. The problem: There are no unified standards relating to motor adaptation. The consequence: Gearboxes are equipped with different motor adapters depending on the type and make of the motor. That is inconvenient, inflexible and costly.

Maximum flexibility for motor adaptation
With the servo gearboxes of the new Neco® series Nabtesco takes a different approach. Instead of using a separate interface for connecting each motor type, a modular system guarantees uncomplicated adaptation of all standard servo motors. The key is a flexible system with modular bushings and flanges. By combining standardised elements it is easy to create numerous defined interfaces for a broad spectrum of drives. The modular system allows the use of Neco® gears with all motor makes and types available on the market. The advantages: maximum flexibility, simplified configuration, faster assembly and shorter delivery times.

Modular gearboxes with high power density
The Neco® series comprises fully enclosed gear units that are defining a new standard with respect to design, corrosion protection, efficiency and flexibility. The compact gearboxes achieve high precision with a hysteresis loss of 0.5 arc.min and are extremely robust, due to dual-bearing eccentric shafts and a bearing-mounted input shaft. Use of a low-inertia radial clamping ring to adapt the motor shaft reduces the inertia on the motor shaft by up to 39 percent. This design enables extremely dynamic cycles.
