Andantex will unveil its latest generation of high-precision planetary reducers, built around its new EVO 1 (Evolution 1) technology, during the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2022, scheduled for September 12 through September 17 in Chicago, at booth 236016.

Developed with machine tool performance in mind, EVO 1 is a new approach to driving machine tool axes. The EVO 1 mechanical gearing system approaches the performance of a linear motor at the lower price of a rack and pinion linear axis. Features include high stiffness, zero backlash and an ultra-minimal transmission error. This new design provides vibration-free motion and an optimum surface finish for the machined part.Source: AndantexSource: Andantex

At the show, Andantex will showcase its first range of redesigned planetary reducers featuring EVO 1 technology — the SRP, KRP, KRPX and DRP Series — which are all available in their existing sizes. The new design still features the breakthrough technologies that made this range of products a favorite for machine tool builders: small diameter integral output pinion, huge preloaded tapered roller output bearings helping to create maximum combined (radial, torsional and axial) stiffness, as well as patented Zero-Backlash DualDRIVE and TwinDRIVE solutions.

In addition to the planetary reducers, visitors can also discover other products from Andantex’s varied lineup, including:

  • Linear and rotary axis drive systems.
  • Two-speed spindle drive gearboxes.
  • Automatic lubrication systems.
  • Merobel magnetic particle tension control systems.
