March 4, 2009
Thomson, A Danaher Motion Company, introduces XTRUE™ True Planetary Gearheads.  Available in 40mm, 60mm, 80mm, 120mm and 160mm frame sizes, XTRUE True Planetary Gearheads are specifically engineered to move large loads more easily and quietly with True Planetary™ gearing through improved load capacity and lower backlash.  They deliver precise 13 arc-mins operation, with torque capacity up to 876 Nm and ratio availability of 3:1 through 100:1.  XTRUE True Planetary Gearheads feature a tapped face output that enables easy, drop-in replacement for similarly configured European gearheads.  “The XTRUE Series of precision gearheads are a cost effective complement to the Micron True Planetary Gearhead family of products, which is already the broadest and deepest selection of planetary gearheads available in the world,” says Howard Horn, Micron Product Line Manager.  Users will benefit from greater machine uptime with the Micron flexible RediMount™ mounting system, which enables the gearhead to be mounted to any motor in three easy steps – simply align, mount and tighten All XTRUE components are RoHS-compliant (EU Directive 2002/95/EC), helping users to “go green” with their machine.
