Ket-Bee 200X series of angular gears

In January 2017 SD Products Ltd has become the first official and exclusive UK distributor for Ketterer, global specialists in mechanical and electromechanical drive solutions. A complete range of Ketterer products is now available to UK customers through SD Products.

We are proud to introduce the latest addition to our catalogue, a new series of Ketterer angular gears – the Ket-Bee 200X series. High-performing mechanics within the smallest possible installation space, plus easy power transmission, an extended service life cycle and a positive price-performance ratio are the stand-out features of this new series.

The leg length in the most compact of the new angular gears is shorter than a matchstick. Ketterer offers seven sizes, featuring legs from 32 to 60 mm long. The angular gear meets many needs in installation, assembly and automation engineering. Further potential areas of application include shading and building engineering, as well as mechanical engineering.

In principle, the gear can be used for any deflection of a linear movement as well as being ideally suited to swivel motions. The applicable areas of deployment in plant construction or handling systems particularly include driving conveyor belts, adjusting the width of conveyor belts or swivel arms as well as adjusting positioning units and pallet systems. The Ket-Bee 200X is used in shading technology applications to adjust slats and other shading elements.

“The need for compact dimensions meant we had to use appropriate materials and prioritize the gear teeth quality. Accordingly, even the most compact model, with a leg length of 32 mm x 32 mm can guarantee maximum torque" - Ketterer CEO Odin Jäger.

The quality of the Ket-Bee 200X is reflected in its long service life and high power density. One reason for this is the use of top-quality materials. The angular gears comprise surface-hardened steel bevel gears and top-quality ball bearings for input and output drive. All of which makes them ideal to withstand the high stresses imposed by mechanical engineering. The precision-manufactured steel bevel gears have a radial clearance of just 3° ± 1°. This means the gear operates virtually noiselessly as well as being low-wear and maintenance-free. The gear ratio is 1 for all versions: 1, with torques and a power spectrum – depending on size – ranging from 0.1 to 10.0 Nm.
