New generation
Vogel develops a new series of low-backlash planetary gearboxes

With the advanced development of the MPG series, Vogel Antriebstechnik is setting new standards in the field of low-backlash planetary gearboxes. The purpose behind the new design was to combine maximum flexibility with high power density. The innovative gearboxes are used in a wide range of different branches: from classic machine and plant engineering through printing and packaging technology to the fields of automation, handling and robotics.

The demands made on gearboxes have been steadily increasing all over the world over the past few years. “Our customers demand higher and higher degrees of precision, durability and power density,” says Volker Uhlmann, Managing Partner at Vogel Antriebstechnik.

To meet these demands, development engineers have developed a new generation of planetary gearboxes. Jens-Peter Horn, Head of Development, sums up the results of months of work: “Our efforts were focused on low backlash and optimisation of the mass moment of inertia.”

The convincing features of the new series include reduced noise emissions, which are explained by improved concentricity and innovative product geometry with helical gear teeth. “This achieves an increase in torque of up to 20% compared with straight geared planetary gearboxes,” comments Jens-Peter Horn. This makes the new development particularly interesting for use in servo applications which have a high speed range. The universal design permits simple and flexible motor attachment and also stands out thanks to the above-average service life of the gearboxes. A large, continuous gear ratio range and permanent lubrication with synthetic high-performance oils round off the innovative MPG series as a well thought-out overall concept.

Wilhelm Vogel GmbH, which is based in the Stuttgart industrial region, is a medium-sized company in the field of drive technology. Its product range includes angular gearboxes such as spiral bevel gearboxes and bevel helical gearboxes as well as coaxial planetary gearboxes in a wide range of different sizes and versions. One of the company's special strengths is in the field of low-backlash servo gearboxes. Vogel Antriebstechnik is a leading partner in machine and plant engineering, printing and packaging technology, handling and robotics and numerous other fields.
