Vogel Antriebstechnik are an established specialist manufacturer for gears with precision and long life. They specialise in planetary gearboxes in a range 40 to 26000Nm and spiral bevel gearboxes in a range 15 to 9000Nm. Vogel are a long term partner to Lenze and Techdrives.
Vogel offer gearboxes designed for precision and long life. Planetary gearboxes can be supplied with backlash certified as below 1 arc mins. Backlash is measured with 2% of nominal torque. Gearbox life can be 10000 hours maintenance free. Vogel gearboxes are commonly found in robotics, packaging and print machinery, machine tools and in the food industry. More recently Vogel gearboxes have been used for both pitch and yaw drives on wind turbines with rated torques up to 150 000Nm
Techdrives worm geared motors are a compact and adaptable solution well suited to intermittent drives.
Vogel are experts in the production of bevel gear sets which are used to create right-angle gearboxes with shallow gear ratios. Bevel gears are machined with precision to achieve long life and low backlash.
Spiral bevel gearboxes suit distributed drives such as printing machines, door opening and screw jack systems. Servo spiral bevel gearboxes are specifically designed with low backlash for connection to servo motors. Bevel helical gearboxes also have low backlash and can be motorised with standard or servo motors.
