New B16C Compact Gearhead Helps Reduce Overall Application Footprint

16th February 2023

Portescap, a world leader in miniature motion solutions, is launching the B16C spur gearhead, one of the latest additions to their gearbox portfolio. The B16C is a compact gearhead that can be directly integrated with Portescap’s 16DCT, 16DCP, and 17DCT Athlonix™ brush DC motors. The new B16C features a rated torque up to 100mNm and a smaller application footprint due to the elimination of certain mechanical components, leading to direct motor integration.

The B16C gearbox is an excellent option for miniature applications demanding space savings and compactness, such as ambulatory enteral feeding pumps, miniature pumps, and home infusion pump applications in the Medical Infusion Systems market.
