Hannover Messe Hall 15, as F10
Wittenstein represents further developments of his Propulsion system "galaxy"Including a new size for axles with high demands on compactness and precision at low to medium torques, an ultra-flat design and a gearbox version with or without hypoid precursor for space-saving machine integration. Practical exhibition models show these as well as the use and advantages of gearboxes in machine tools, milling heads and robot welding guns.
Since its launch at the Hannover Messe 2015 and winning the Hermes Award, the propulsion system has achieved the scientific status of an independent type of transmission. As a result, it will soon be included in a standard work of machine tool building.
There are five different sizes and a new design. These include the compact version Galaxie D in size 085 for use in smaller milling heads and handling axes with special requirements for torsional rigidity and backlash, the ultra-flat galaxy DF in the sizes 110 and 135 which saves up to 30% length, and the transmission variant galaxy GH with a optional angle precursor. With flexible encoder interfaces, the gearbox can be easily integrated into existing machine concepts
Using a sensor-equipped galaxy drive system, the transfer of operating data to an IoT cloud is demonstrated for the first time. In the future, data can be retrieved over the entire life cycle of the drive, regardless of the controller, anywhere and via all terminals.
