Gearhead minimises heat and enhances efficiency in applications requiring medium torque output

Portescap introduces the new R22T cohort, the latest addition to its existing 22mm gearbox portfolio. As a mid-torque gearhead, the R22T fills the gap between the light-torque R22 and high-torque R22HT gearheads. It is also fully compatible with Portescap’s brush DC and brushless DC slotless motors.

This gearbox features a 22mm diameter, a full metal design, and delivers continuous torque up to 1.5Nm. The standout feature of the R22T is its lower heat generation, staying an average of 20% cooler at desired working points than competitive solutions. This results in improved energy utilisation, decreased energy wastage, and an extended lifespan.

The R22T is suitable for applications that require mid-range performance in a powerful, compact package, such as those in robotics, industrial power tools, and aerospace and defence. Specific examples include control actuation systems (CAS), window shade actuation, grippers, pruning shears, and powered screwdrivers.
