The latest patented Apex Dynamics innovation in servo worm gearbox technology is reliable and versatile, available in different output shafts (solid shaft, hollow shaft and shrink disc), mounting positions, and input flange variants to match the required servo motor.

With an output torque range of 9 Nm 1000 Nm, the JDLB series offers an array of options to companies seeking enhanced motion control. The high precision worm gear units are suitable for a wide range of application scenarios, with excellent shock-load resistance and superior efficiency for demanding industrial environments.

Servo worm gearboxes are the ideal substitute for planetary gearboxes, providing robust and precise torque control in a compact right-angled solution. They are particularly suited to applications which involve sudden changes in load or very heavy loads, and require smooth and stable operation.

The shock absorption and distribution features designed into the JDLB product range protect the gearbox and connected components, while reliability and precision reduce wear and tear on components and extend the lifespan of machinery. The closed structure and high-performance synthetic lubricant mean the gearboxes are also maintenance free.

Available from Apex Dynamics UK's automation division, with the company's 5-year warranty, 3-4 week lead times and guaranteed delivery, the JDLB series servo worm gear units come in a variety of nine frame sizes from 025 to 110, two backlash variants (1 arc min and 2-4 arc min), and a range of gear ratios (10, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80, 100). The light, compact worm gear units can be used in series, driven by one motor to achieve synchronous output of multiple worm wheels, making them ideal for applications such as parts processing equipment in the electronics or communication industries.

Commenting on the launch of the JDLB series, Apex Dynamics UK sales manager, Andrew Parsons, says: We are very proud of our new JDLB range and believe it meets a market need for enhanced performance and exceptional efficiency from a flexible, reliable servo worm gearbox. The excellent shock-load resistance and resilience delivers increased system uptime and reduced maintenance costs for end users.

We have managed to get backlash down to 1 arc minute for the most demanding applications, delivering minimal energy loss to industry applications where energy conservation and system efficiency is a key priority. As well as optimizing the overall performance of machinery, the agile and responsive servo worm gearboxes cut operating costs, are easy to integrate into tight spaces, and provide a smaller, more sustainable environmental footprint.
