Press release | Nabtesco at SPS 2023

User-friendly gears with maximum efficiency - Cycloidal gears from Nabtesco are regarded as a key technology for efficient automation solutions. At SPS 2023 the company, with European headquarters in Düsseldorf, will present its broad portfolio of precision products, including user-friendly, flexible and efficient drive concepts for numerous applications.

Cycloidal gears ensure high-precision positioning throughout their entire service life (hysteresis loss of 0.5 to max. 1 arcmin) and are designed for excellent dynamic behaviour, load-bearing capacity (shock resistance up to 500% of the rated torque) and smooth operation. Compared to standard planetary gears, they feature significantly higher precision, dynamics and rigidity, to boost efficiency and reduce costs – whether in mechanical engineering, automated guided vehicles (AGV), medical technology, packaging systems or numerous other applications.

The Neco® series: Innovative plug & play solutions

Especially for automation in mechanical engineering, Nabtesco developed the Neco® (servo gearboxes in a modern, clean design) and Neco®HT (high-torque gears for heavy-duty applications) series. These innovative plug & play gears optimally combine performance, economy and convenience, which makes them the ideal basis for efficient drive concepts. A characteristic feature is their high level of modularity. The combination of standardised elements easily allows the use of numerous defined interfaces for a broad spectrum of drives. This guarantees faster assembly, maximum flexibility in the motor connection, economical series production and high availability with shorter delivery times.

No compromises in performance: hollow shaft gears of the RD-C and RS series

For routing of cables and hoses, the hollow shaft gears of the RD-C gears are the first choice. The large hollow shaft allows space-saving routing of data and supply lines, as well as drive shafts, while simultaneously increasing the load-bearing capacity. It does not remain rigid, but rather is designed to rotate at the output rpm. The advantage of this is that a sensor on the hollow shaft can determine the position of the drive shaft. The RD-C series comprises servo gearboxes with three different mounting variants: direct, angled and belt driven. This enables fast, economical installation and flexibility of use. The RS gears are specially designed for rotational positioning. Their high positioning accuracy, exceptional performance and compact design make them a feasible alternative to conventional rotary indexers.

Unrestricted mobility for automated guided vehicles (AGV)

For mobile automation solutions, Nabtesco offers a fully integrated and decentralised drive unit with a Mecanum wheel that combines utmost precision with maximum robustness, reliability and durability, thus fulfilling all requirements of modern automated guided vehicles (AGV). The RV-W Mecanum wheel drives used by Nabtesco also allow high torque capacity in a compact design and are equipped with an integrated main bearing for optimal absorption of the radial and axial forces generated. Maintenance-free operation of the compact and extremely robust drive concept is ensured thanks to cycloidal gears. The wheel unit houses all necessary components. This gives the user maximum freedom in the design of AGV solutions.
