Pairing Gearheads with Servo Motors

By Jeff Nazzaro, Parker Automation Machine designers are increasingly turning to gearheads to take advantage of the latest advances in servo motor technology. Essentially, a gearhead converts high-speed, low-torque energy into low-speed, high-torque output. A servo motor provides highly accurate positioning of its output shaft. When these two devices are paired with one another, they … Continue reading Pairing Gearheads with Servo Motors
