This discussion will cover a number of different gearing technologies that can and should be used in the world of automation using servo driven gearboxes. Many engineers working in this field have predominantly an electrical and controls background and typically have very limited knowledge related to mechanical gearing. Planetary gearboxes are the most common designs used in automation, not because they are the best tech available, but because they were the only type of gearing technology initially offered in the automation world. This discussion will review a variety of gearing technology and why they may be a better choice than a typical planetary for a given application.
