NO WAITING for standard geared solutions
Manufacturers of industrial machinery, medical devices or factory plants often have to react very quickly to the requirements of the market. Market forces mean that “time to market” is an all important factor today and can lead to the success or failure of a product. Besides the quality and variety of the drive solutions on offer today, this makes fast product availability even more important than before, particularly during the design phase, for sampling and pre production volumes.
Motion Component Solution specialist DELTA LINE EUROPE and ZEITLAUF GmbH have teamed up to bring an exciting range of innovative gearing solutions. For a long time now it has not only been the quality of the products supplied and short delivery times for standard gear head motors that have become a matter of course. Now, the fast availability of the standard modular range has been extended even further. The standard drive motors, which are offered in a large number of variants, can be supplied in quantities of 1 to 20 within one week. This is possible due to the use of state-of-the-art EDP and warehouse management as well as a cleverly designed modular system that Delta Line Europe and Zeitlauf offer. All drive motors in the standard modular range can be assembled economically together with individual parts from this modular system.
The possibilities from which the user can make his selection are enormously varied: The range of spur and planetary gear head motors has in the meantime been extended from 39 to 62 motor and gear head combinations with finely-staged reduction series and is represented in a clearly structured form in the new Standard Program Modular System Catalogue.
With regard to motors, designers basically have the choice between split pole motors, capacitor motors, DC motors, Hybrid Stepper motors, DC external rotor motor with or without integrated electronic controls, or brushless DC internal rotor motors. Depending on the type, they work on either 230 V AC or 24 V DC. The geared solutions offer output torques ranging up to 30 Nm and speeds up to 1132 rotations per minute.
