Additional designs : ZT Series Used as multipliers (Reduction ratios = 0.5 ; 0.67) ZD Series Manual slide dog clutch, including a neutral. ZI Series The same as ZD With manual forward neutral and reverse. ZR Series Spiral bevel gearbox with reinforced hollow bore.

Web Tension Controller

Web Tension Controller

Web Tension Controller – DGT300+ – Merobel

With MEROBEL’s new DGT300+, Web Tension Control has never been so easy to manage.  The DGT300+ is a digital controller dedicated to web tension and torque control.


The newest Digital Controller from MEROBEL combines, in a smart and low profile front face enclosure, the most simple user’s interface with the most advanced technical features.

Designed for both closed loop and open loop tension control, the DGT300+ is the up-to-date turnkey solution for unwinding, rewinding and intermediate tension control applications.

Allowing 100% setting up through its user’s friendly Windows PC interface, or through its front panel keyboard, the DGT300+ includes all the requested web tension control specific functions : E-stop, soft start, hold & release, taper tension, no-stop splice turrets. Analog set point input is also available for using distant remote control with PLC analog output or potentiometer.

Allowing direct input of position sensors, US sensors, or any kind of load cells technology signals, the DGT300+ design gives the benefit of fully digital calibration procedure as simple as 1-2-3 (no switch, strap, or resistance).

Precision Gearboxes

Precision Gearboxes

High-tech servo-reducer combined with a preloaded split pinion output (PDP) PDP is the first range of “Preloaded Double Pinion” for high-precision rack and pinions applications.

 PDP is made of 2 ground WMH pinions connected through a patented preload system to reduce dramatically rack and pinion mesh backlash. This innovative concept allows high positioning accuracy and repeatability with a very competitive budget.

For many applications, there is no longer need of two coupled planetary reducers. Mounted at the output flange of SRP, REDEX ANDANTEX’ high-tech planetary gearhead, the PDP is set apart by its performance level, such as: superior precision and repeatability, superior torsional rigidity, extremely high radial rigidity and tilting moment levels, high input speed and maximum acceleration and rated torque

Through its universal design, PDP enables design engineering departments to always find exactly the right solution to their high-technology requirements, thanks to its very wide range and several available options when mounted on SRP.

Rack And Pinion Gearboxes

Rack And Pinion Gearboxes

Dedicated to racks & pinions drive applications, the DRP+ design is based on the association of two top quality planetary reducers, mounted in parallel on an extra high stiffness universal frame. When choosing the mechanical preload solution, the DRP+ become a DualDRIVE unit, which achieve the true backlash free feature by torsionally winding one pinion against the other through the rack. Immediate benefits are to need only one motor, and to dramatically simplify the motor control. When choosing the Electrical preload solution, the DRP+ is used as a TwinDRIVE unit, where the backlash is cancelled by the opposite torque balance between the two pinions, according with the two motors and drives remote control.
