Safety couplings are used to minimize expensive damage when a collision occurs in a high performance servo drive system.  When a collision occurs, the safety coupling will stop the destructive inertial forces instantly and eliminate downtime and repair costs often associated when just an overload relay is used.

Ideal for any light or demanding servo application where corrosion resistance is a requirement, the SSP Series offers economy, high precision, and long lasting performance.

Features include:

  • Frame sizes from 70 to 120 mm
  • Ratios from 3:1 to 100:1
  • Dual output bearings for high radial and axial loading
  • Input clamping element for fast and easy mounting
  • Optional input O-ring to keep contaminants out custom designed for your motor. (Special request at time of order)
  • Optional stainless steel output coupling KG-VA for corrosion resistant connections to other shafts

Gam EPL-H Planetary Gearbox

Gam EPL-H Planetary Gearbox

From Mount Prospect, IL to the International Space Station, GAM is helping to improve the air quality for NASA Astronauts.

Gam’s EPL-H planetary gear reducer is being used for precision valve actuation on a carbon dioxide removal system on the International Space Station.

The EPL-H has a hollow output which was a perfect design feature for the system.  This created the shortest overall length and further reduced mechanical interference with other instruments.

The EPL-H Series  was designed specifically to address the difficulty of connecting gear reducers  to linear products.  The hollow output  and zero backlash clamping ring create the quickest and most economical way to add  gearing to essentially any linear belt or ball screw.   Features include:

  • Precision cut planetary gears
  • Ratios up to 1000:1
  • Frame sizes from 64 mm to 118 mm
  • Same backlash and efficiencies as EPL Series
