Low-backlash planetary gearboxes

Low-backlash planetary gearboxes from WITTENSTEIN alpha – from precise torque converters to a universal success factor for your machine. High torsional rigidity, extremely smooth running and low torsional backlash are typical performance features of our low-backlash planetary gearboxes. Our broad product portfolio, with several different output configurations, contains the perfect planetary gearbox whatever the application. WITTENSTEIN alpha’s sizing tools help you achieve the optimal design for a complete drive train and select the ideal gearbox for your motion profile.

Requirements on low-backlash planetary gearboxes

Low-backlash planetary gearboxes are used in drives in multiple industries. The requirements profile for these is accordingly very complex: high speeds, low operating noise, high torsional rigidity, low torsional backlash – no two applications are identical.

Our answer: the optimum solution for any performance range.

From less than 1 arcmin to less than 15 arcmin of torsional backlash, our low-backlash planetary gearboxes meet any precision requirements. From HIGH SPEED versions for continuous operation through HIGH TORQUE gearboxes for higher torque densities to special planetary gearboxes in corrosion resistant design, we have a suitable solution to match your particular application.

Variants and additional services

Our low-backlash planetary gearboxes impress with a broad product portfolio and numerous variants. However, our main focus is not the product but the customer. From the initial idea throughout the lifecycle of your application, we are at your side as we continue to raise the bar for service quality.
