High Performance Servo Gearbox is ideal for Cyclic or Continuous High Speed Applications

The SPH inline planetary gearbox is GAM’s latest solution for today’s demanding motion control challenges. With helical gears, the SPH is designed for dynamic and cyclic applications and can also be optimized for high speed and continuous duty applications.


It is available in six frame sizes with nominal torque ratings from 15 to up to 900Nm. The SPH features precision cut helical gears that are ground for smoothness, quiet operation, and high accuracies.  The face width of the SPH gears are up to 70% longer than the gears in comparable gearboxes on the market, which means more tooth contact and greater overall torque density.  To carry the higher torques, SPH gears are case hardened which imparts strength deeper into the gear compared to nitriding which hardens just the surface.  With several output configurations available, machine integration is simplified.

SPH Series Benefits

  • Helical Gearing
  • Lower backlashes
  • Lower noise levels
  • Smoother torque transmission

Over 9,000 of the most popular servomotors on the market are available for selection.  After choosing a motor, easily narrow down the list of matching products by filtering attributes. 

Other notable highlights of the sizing tool give users the ability to adjust the continuous and peak torque values of the motor based on the actual performance requirements to ensure accurate sizing and a side-by-side product comparison function.  Once a product has been sized, you can get a personalized specification page with instant access to everything you need for your design including:  

*     CAD models tailored to the specific motor available for download
*     Detailed product information
*     .PDF versions of the catalog or individual catalog sections
*     Recommended complimentary products
*     Quick RFQ and online ordering options

GAM Introduces New SPH Helical Gearbox

GAM SPH Gearbox

GAM SPH Gearbox

Mount Prospect, IL – July 10, 2012 –  GAM Gear introduces the SPH series inline planetary gearbox.  Featuring helical gearing, the SPH brings a new level of power and precision to an extensive portfolio of gear technology which includes hypoid, spiral bevel, spur, and worm.

The SPH is designed specifically for dynamic and cyclic motion control applications and can be optimized for high speed and continuous duty applications as well.  The SPH gears are cut at an ideal angle to help reduce axial forces that are traditionally associated with helical gearing and then ground for reduced noise levels and improved smoothness and accuracy.  The gear teeth are also wider which allows for larger permissible torques relative to the frame size and heavy duty taper roller bearings enable large loading capabilities.

“Our customers have been looking for a high precision gearbox that can help maximize their machine performance,” said Craig van den Avont, President of GAM Gear.  “Helical gearing is a necessity as these applications require a combination of high accuracies, efficiencies, speeds, and torques. The SPH delivers.”

The SPH is GAM’s latest solution for today’s demanding motion control challenges.  Available in six frame sizes and nominal torque ratings ranging from 15 to 900Nm.

Key Features:

  • Helical Gears
  • Precision cut
  • Higher torque capacity relative to the frame size
  • Smooth and quiet transmission
  • Output dimensions match those of comparable gear reducers on the market
  • Several output configurations simplifies system integration
