Neugart have released the new PLN planetary gearbox with class leading performance. Manufactured in the new €10m, 20,000m2 purpose built facilities in Germany, the PLN will benefit from Kanban production methods that will ultimately allow a two week delivery time for any model within the range.
Every aspect of the gearbox specification has been improved, it has 25% lower noise to < 58 dB(A), improved output torque to 1800Nm, light weight round body design with two optional output flanges, easy shaft mounting with PCS-2 “ precision clamping systems, increased radial and axial loads to 9,000 and 15,000N using twin taper roller bearings with larger centre spacing. All these enhancements also provide improved operating hours to 30,000. The aim is that it will ultimately replace the PLS, PLS HP and PLV Series of gearboxes.
With this rationalisation of the range, improved production volumes are possible, which leads to a better commercial package for all our customers.
