Inline and Right Angle Planetary Gearboxes

Macron Dynamics MPG inline planetary gearboxes and MRG right-angle planetary gearboxes are designed to eliminate the need for motor mounts used in a typical linear actuator drive system setup. These gearboxes are a direct bolt-on installation for any Macron linear actuator. The gearboxes design eliminates the need for couplings and large mounting brackets, essentially making the actuator and drive assembly a seamless integral unit.

Macron’s MPG and MRG planetary gearboxes are specially designed for integration with Macron Dynamics linear robotic systems, featuring:

  • A single screw clamping collar attachment for the pulley housing
  • Zero backlash clamping to actuator and motor shafts
  • Piloted interfaces for concentric alignment
  • Easy bolted connections

In comparison to these more complex connection methods, our exclusive Macron design:

  • Shortens powertrain length
  • Ensures shaft to shaft alignment
  • Eliminates special engineering and multiple component parts

We use high-quality components to create a low backlash operation in a lightweight package. The MPG and MRG gearboxes have gears designed for infinite life when operated at the rated torque, while the bearings and lubricant are selected to achieve maintenance-free operation for long operating periods.
