Apex Dynamics, Inc. is a worldwide leader in manufacturing of planetary gearboxes. Based on more than twenty years of accumulated manufacturing and marketing experience, plus the highest level of technical production capabilities, Apex Dynamics, Inc. designed and built a technically advanced, high speed, low backlash servo application planetary gearbox. Apex Dynamic’s break through patented technology (over 6 patents), provides the customer with the optimum high precision helical reducer at a reasonable price and is offered with the only tip to toe 5-Year warranty in the industry today, including the seals and bearings.
The APEX servo gearbox has been designed for direct attachment to popular servomotors. The power is transmitted from the motor to sun gear. The sun gear drives three planet gears, which are contained within an internal toothed ring gear. The planet gears are mounted on the planet carrier with double wall supports. The planet carrier is part of the output shaft. So when the sun gear rotates, it drives the three planet gears inside the ring gear. As planet gears rotate, the carrier turns, and automatically the output shaft rotates.
Due to the load sharing into multiple tooth contacts, the planetary gearbox provides high torque and stiffness for a given envelope. The other advantages are simple and efficient lubrication and a balanced system for high speeds. The balanced planetary kinematics and the associated load sharing make the planetary gearbox truly ideal for servo applications.
