The food, beverage and packaging industry have very stringent hygienic standards for their production and packaging processes. Cycloidal gears from Nabtesco feature an extremely hygienic design and are ideal for use in Delta, SCARA and palletizing robots.
Automation in the food, beverage and packaging industry necessitates compliance not only with more stringent hygienic standards, but also with requirements for increased speed and precision. Due to their high precision and compact design, eccentric gears from Nabtesco are ideal for highly dynamic pick & place applications, as well as handling and positioning tasks.
Cycloidal gears for precise handling and positioning
The compact cycloidal gears of the RF-P series offer a high level of performance. Their low weight provides for lower mass inertia and improved load conditions. The two-stage reduction principle of the virtually backlash-free precision gears results in excellent performance with respect to dynamics and smooth operation, as well as high repeat and path accuracy. This is an advantage especially for use in high-speed applications. The robust low-wear reduction gears of the RH-N series are also suitable for high payloads. This enables their use in diverse applications:
• Delta robots
• SCARA robots
• Palletizing robots
• Handling applications
• Positioning systems
Reduction gears from Nabtesco absolutely fulfil the high hygienic standards of the food industry. They feature a very hygienic design as a result of:
• smooth surfaces
• optimised seals
• water-repellent coatings (on request)
The eccentric gears are available either as full or hollow shaft versions.
H1 lubricants for the food industry
Nabtesco gear heads are assembled in Germany as completely enclosed components for hygiene applications and are optionally available with food-compliant H1 lubricants. The special gear oil is fully proven in field tests.
