From the compact precision of the alpha TP+ to the economical performance of the alpha LP+ and the classic solution of the alpha SP+, there is always a servo inline planetary gearboxes solution for your needs.  The innovatAlpha Gear Headsors in servo gearbox technology, their alpha range of precision gearheads continue to expand and grow to fit the needs of the changing motion world.

  • Right-angle servo gearboxes
  • Hollow-shaft gearheads
  • In-line gearboxes
  • Double torque
  • Flange type, Heavy Duty

Mini ServoWittenstein’s innovative servo technology ranges from miniature motors to industrial direct drives to completely custom designed servos. These unique servo motors provide the highest performance combined with the highest power density and lowest torque ripple. Adding to the flexibility, Wittenstein servo motors are compatible with most servo drives.

  • Optimal power density
  • Revolutionary compactness
  • Flange sizes between 17 and 55mm

Alpha Ternary ActuatorsTernary is the all-in-one linear actuator system from Wittenstein that merges mechanics with intelligence, integrating several separate components: electronics,power, control, and Fieldbus all-in-one.

The ternary provides easy control of position, velocity, acceleration and force, and provides for mid-move velocity changes. Precise control of multiple points eliminates the need for mechanical stops and limit switches.  Each Ternary Actuator Includes:

  • Stepper or Brushless Servo Motor
  • Encoder feedback
  • Planetary gearhead
  • Ball screw driven cylinder or slide

Alpha AccessoriesMechanical and mechatronic accessories from Wittenstein add value to your system, offering you the ability to optimize any design. From couplings providing you piece of mind for your machine to sensor technology used in process optimization, our motion accessories are all inclusive.

  • Compact and maintenance-free couplings
  • Rack & Pinion Systems
  • Sensor Technology
  • alphaCool™  Adapter Plates
