Product Overview:
The Toughbox Micro is a functional replacement for the Toughbox Nano. It offers the same gear ratios of the Toughbox Mini in asimilar footprint to the Toughbox Nano but with far easier access for repairs or maintenance. The Toughbox Micro features a lightweight plastic molded housing and two different shaft plate options for endless mounting and usage options. The Toughbox Micro accepts one CIM motor and is perfect for drivetrain and mechanism uses.

Product Usage:
All AndyMark gearboxes require grease for proper operation and long life. We suggest using our red tacky grease, am-2768. We also encourage that the user powers the gearbox continuously for 30 minutes without grease to allow the gear teeth to wear in. While we do design with short run times in mind, we highly recommend this 'run in' period for smooth gearbox operation. Once this is completed, thoroughly grease the gear teeth periodically to ensure smooth operation.

Toughbox Micro Specifications:
  • Housing Material: Nylon 6/6 with Long Fiberglass Fill
  • Gear Material: 4140 Steel
  • Shaft Material: 4140 Steel
  • Aluminum Gear Options are 6061 Aluminum
The best solution for encoders on these gearboxes is the SRX Magnetic Encoder (am-3445). The output shafts include a built in magnet to work with this encoder. Use the SRX Magnetic Encoder Mounting Hardware Kit (am-3565) in conjunction with the SRX Magnetic Encoder for a perfect fit.

Updated Toughbox Gearbox March 6, 2017
Reviewer: Randy Hunt from Oak Harbor, WA United States  
Our FIRST Robotics Competition has used the Toughbox Nano for several years without failure. As the Nano is outdated and replaced by the Micro, we find similar performance and expect similar durability. The new design saves a bit of weight and fits exactly in place of the previous version. The gearbox held up in practice sessions and we anticipate completing competition season without failure.
