World first Galaxie gearbox enables extremely high power density and torsional rigidity
We would like to introduce to you the brand new Galaxie gearbox from Wittenstein. This innovative drive system has proved itself to be “superior on principle” in numerous industrial applications, frequently making the impossible possible.
Its unique kinematics enable virtually full surface contact during power transmission, meaning that the compact Galaxie drive systems and gearboxes achieve previously inconceivable performance data. These include extremely high torque density, torsional rigidity, smooth running, positioning accuracy and completely backlash-free operation.
The innovative core of the new Galaxie drive system is the almost full surface contact during power transmission. This gives a tooth contact surface which is 6.5 times larger compared to conventional involute teeth with typical linear contact. The gearbox is the only one of its kind in the world to guide a large number of individual teeth along an internal ring gear.
