New GPL Zero-Backlash Robotic Gearboxes Available

GAM GPL-F GearboxMount Prospect, Ill. – August 15, 2018 – GAM announces the release of the new GPL zero-backlash planetary gearboxes. The new gearboxes provide high precision and rigidity for horizontal and vertical robotic and motion control applications.

Featuring a patent-pending design, the backlash will not increase over the lifetime of the gearbox, maintaining high precision and eliminating periodic adjustment. The GPL series is available in seven sizes with ratios from 36:1 to 200:1.

“The GPL expands GAM’s offering into zero-backlash gearboxes,” said Randy Kuper, Regional Sales Manager GAM, “and with less than 6 arcsecs [0.1 arcmin] backlash, the GPL has the highest accuracy on the market.”

Output options for the GPL series include a solid flanged output (GPL-F) and a hollow shaft flanged output (GPL-H). The GPL series can be used in a variety of applications, from robotics and automation to medical equipment, where zero-backlash, high tilting and torsional rigidity and long life are required.
