Planetary Gearheads for Applied Motion Products Stepper and Servo Motors

by Matt Cole

Applied Motion Products offers a standard range of gear ratios (3:1 up to 100:1) in its complete line of planetary gearheads, compatible with both NEMA and metric motor frame sizes. Planetary gearheads are ideal for high torque motion control applications requiring precise positioning, high efficiency, and low backlash. In applications where there is a large load-to-rotor inertia mismatch, these gearheads are the perfect compact solution.

Available for purchase directly from the Applied Motion Products website or from a local Applied Motion distributor, these gearheads ship directly from our US manufacturer’s warehouse with mounting instructions included. Most models and gear ratios are available to ship within 2 days after order placement, while other less common gear ratios have a lead time of 2-4 weeks (check web store notes for lead time).

  • Economical true planetary design
  • High torque gear geometry
  • Advanced materials and heat treatments
  • Compact and efficient design
  • 2-year warranty
  • NEMA and metric standard frame sizes
  • Quick installation
  • High reliability design

Compatible motor frame sizes include NEMA 17, 23, 24, 34, as well as 40mm, 60mm, and 80mm; simply specify the motor model that the gearhead will be used with at the time your order is placed. The motor model information is required to ensure that the properly sized pinion and clamp collar are included with the gearhead for its easy installation on to the motor. Once the pinion has been securely clamped to the motor shaft per the instructions included with the gearhead, the motor and gearhead can be then be mated together. With the right tools, this gearhead mounting procedure takes only minutes to accomplish.
