V-Drive servo worm gearheads: Maximum power density

With its three product variants, the new servo worm gearhead series from WITTENSTEIN alpha leaves nothing to be desired as far as performance, smooth running and flexibility are concerned. A suitable solution exists for any specified torsional backlash greater than 2 arcmin. Attributes such as maximum economy in all axes, maximum torque density and constant, low torsional backlash throughout the service life are common to all of the gearheads.

V-Drive Basic, V-Drive Value and V-Drive Advanced: these servo worm gearheads give you best-in-class precision – tailored precision up to ≤ 2 arcminutes for a variety of applications. You profit from rapid availability as well as optimal reliability and maximum economy throughout a lifespan of more than 20,000 hours. Ideal contact conditions and high quality lubricants guarantee more than 95 percent efficiency for these German-built gearheads at full load.
