COMPACT, RELIABLE DRIVING FORCE
30 October 2012
According to R. A. Rodriguez, the great strength of its Framo Morat Compacta slip-on geared motors is their ability to provide a reliable driving force in a small design envelope.
With the introduction of the new AG160, this attribute is even more pronounced. This top of the range addition extends output torque to 1600Nm, in housing that measures just 375.25mm x 200mm.
The smaller dimensions and the low weight of Compacta are achieved by the use of a spur and worm gear transmission combined with performance-optimised motors; the transmission is also said to be exceptionally quiet.
The design’s integrated and easily adjustable limit and safety switches contribute to the Compacta’s flexibility. It can also be equipped with a potentiometer for position feedback allowing for precise control and repeatable positioning.
