Description

In this RoboByte, we're talking about the TETRIX® MAX Worm Gear Box. The Worm Gear Box brings durability and power through specialization to your robot. Utilizing a 4:1 gear ratio for slow and smooth rotational motion, this gear box minimizes backlash and greatly reduces the chance of a back-driving gear motor. It's an efficient way to protect the motor and hold a position can be held even when power is not applied. All-metal construction for durability and power.
