Product Overview

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, this 'run in' period for smooth gearbox operation, is recommended. Once this is completed, thoroughly grease the gear teeth periodically to ensure smooth operation.

Weight Reduction with Optional Parts sold separately: Additional Encoder:
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. A very complete guide for encoder installation and alignment is shown on the Encoder Package page.

Motor Mount Plate Options:
We offer a Standard mount plate made out of polycarbonate.

Optional Long Output Shaft:
T-Box Long Output Shaft is available, which is 3.5 inches longer than the standard Output Shaft.

Aluminum Hex Output Shafts:
The Toughbox can use a short hex aluminum output shaft, but a FR8ZZ-Hex bearing must be ordered to replace the FR8ZZ bearing supporting the output shaft.

    "14:1 My Favorite Ratio"

    "The standard 12:1 ratio works great, but the 14:1 ratio really gives an edge in acceleration and pushing force. I know, I know "it slows you down", but how long do you ever spend a peak velocity? Not nearly as much time as you do speeding up and slowing down. We did the math and 14:1 is my favorite ratio."

    "The FMRHS Robotivs team, The Robocats, had a good experience purchasing items online. Both the quality and the delivery time were fantastic. As a rookie team, we look forward to using AndyMark in the future."

    "Toughbox Gearbox"

    "Our motor and gearbox are stationary. This is not a FIRST Application, as students are using the equipment to run a small conveyor belt. This gear reducer is as loud as rocks rolling in a metal coffee can on a Greyhound bus with a bad muffler. It does transmit power, just very loudly. We assembled it in accordance with the YouTube video and the instruction sheet. We applied white lithium grease to all gear teeth (there was no grease recommendation in the instructions)."
