Top Quality Geared Motors. Watt Drive gearboxes and geared motors are the electro-mechanical key components for low backlash, smoothly running and highly powerful drive systems.
Our high-performance gear systems are built to withstand the toughest industrial applications.
The apparatus housings are machined on all sides and invite diverse mounting positions and applications, making them much sought after in the industry. Because of this our geared motors are often to be found within our customers own devices.
The smooth running of Watt Drive gear units and the outstanding load capacity of WATT teeth are achieved with 3D design supported by FEM (Finite Element Method). This tooth geometry guarantees optimum rolling get in touch with under load.
The special tooth root design in combination with tooth helix angle, tooth depth, the components used and surface finish maximizes load capacity. This high gearing capacity enables smaller wheels to be used for the same torque, and smaller gears with remarkable power density can also increase reliability. Watt Drive geared motors are consequently incredible space savers.
Gearing produced with such micro-geometric accuracy allows the gearing play necessary for troublefree rolling contact to be substantially decreased and therefore the gear backlash to be minimized.
Double chamber shaft seals developed by Watt Drive are utilized as standard in parallel shaft, shaft mounted and helical worm gears for a higher level of planetary gearbox tightness.
