PM2 Pinion Series Gearboxes for Maximum Feed Rate

April 15, 2023

The PM2 pinion series of planetary gearboxes come with a factory pre-installed pinion and are designed for gearboxes with a flanged output shaft. Fitted with a mechanical interface standardized to ISO 9409-1, the range of the PM2 starts with 16 teeth for module 2.


Providing additional options for selecting the right gearbox/pinion combination for demanding rack-and-pinion applications, their smaller diameter, depending on the combination, allows a feed rate more than 3x higher than was previously possible.


The PM2 pinion option is available for gearboxes sizes 090 to 200 and is available for a total of four gearbox series with a flanged output shaft. Among them is the PFHE coaxial planetary gearbox from the Economy Line, which comprises durable and powerful standard gearboxes.


In the case of the Precision Line, which provides the high accuracy of precision gearboxes, these are the PSFN and PLFN coaxial planetary gearboxes and the space-saving WPSFN right-angle gearbox.


In total, the extended pinion range for gearboxes with a flanged output shaft includes numerous PM2 variants with 16 to 22 teeth for module 2, 14 to 19 teeth for module 3, 20 to 22 teeth for module 4, and 19 teeth for module 5.a
