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, this 'run in' period for smooth gearbox operation, is recommended. Once this is completed, thoroughly grease the gear teeth periodically to ensure smooth operation.
This 31-inch-long Nano Tube houses two complete gearboxes, each having the same gearing and shafts as the Nano with 500 Key Shaft. This unit also has a third central shaft, which is dropped by 0.13 in. compared to the end shafts. This central shaft is driven by a 1:1 gear train, driven from one of the end gearboxes. No chain or belts are present in this drive system. Toughbox Nano Tube accepts two 2.5 in. CIM Motors. Hardware is included for attaching this motor.
This product is intended to be used as a complete drive module for the side of a 6-wheel-drive robot. A second tube is to be used on the opposite side of the robot in order to make the complete drive chassis. Version: 3-shaft, 500 Key, Gear Drive
Specifications for each Gearbox:
- Overall Ratio: 12.75:1 (standard)
- Gear material: 4140 steel
- Gear type: spur gears, 20 dp, 14.5 degree pressure angle
- Body extrusion material: 6061 aluminum
- Output shaft: 1/2 in. diameter, 4140 steel with 1/8 in. keyway
- Input Gear: CIM Gear, 14 tooth, 0.315 in. bore w/ 2 mm keyway
- Large Cluster Gear: 50 tooth, 3/8 in. hex bore
- Small Cluster Gear: 14 tooth, 3/8 in. hex bore
- Large Output Gear: 50 tooth, 1/2 in. hex bore
Weight Reduction with Optional Parts:
Aluminum Large Cluster Gear can replace the standard steel 50 Tooth Large Cluster Gear.
Aluminum Large Output Gear can replace the standard steel 50 Tooth Large Output Gear.
An optional Encoder Package can be purchased and added to this Toughbox. If you already have a US Digital Encoder to fit this Toughbox, this Encoder Mount Pad will help you mount the encoder to the Toughbox. Here is a guide for encoder installation and alignment.
Aluminum Hex Output Shaft:
The Toughbox Nano Tube can use a hex aluminum output shaft and a long hex aluminum output shaft, but a FR8ZZ-Hex bearing MUST be ordered SEPARATELY to replace the FR8ZZ bearing supporting each output shaft. Also, the 500 Key Hubs must be swapped out for 500 Hex Hubs.
