Macron Dynamics, Inc. just updated and expanded its line of planetary gearboxes with the new MRG Right Angle Gearboxes. This product-line expansion complements the Improved MPG Inline Planetary Gearboxes.
Macron Dynamics’ gearboxes are designed to eliminate the need for motor mounts used in a typical linear actuator drive system setup. Similar to the MPG line of in-line planetary gearboxes, the MRG gearboxes offer a direct bolt-on installation for all Macron Dynamic linear actuators and gantry systems.
The lightweight design:
- eliminates the need for couplings and large mounting brackets
- makes the actuator and drive assembly a seamless integral unit
- require little to no maintenance
- offers a single screw clamping collar attachment for the pulley housing
The MRG line shares many similarities with the MPG in-line planetary gearboxes, including integrating with the same actuators and sharing the same max motor input shaft diameter. Output torque between the MPG and MRG lines does differ slightly.
Released in Fall 2018, the MPG inline planetary gearboxes were improved to have a single clamping collar attachment which matches the Macron pulley housing precisely. MPG gearboxes have gears designed for infinite life when operated at the rated torque. Bearings and lubricants are selected to achieve maintenance-free operation for long operating periods.
Both the MPG and MRG gearboxes are available for a wide variety of Macron Dynamics belt drive and screw driven actuators
