Servo gearheads provide mechanical advantage by multiplying motor torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back to the motor.
We offers the widest range of gear technologies providing optimal solutions far beyond the features of various other gearhead suppliers.
Are you aware why we still use today gearboxes while servo motors becoming more powerful and more advanced? The gearboxes are found in many cases in combination with a servo motor, for example because they have low backlash and are able to cope with high torque. But nonetheless we didn’t give a remedy to the previous issue: why! In this post we discuss the procedure of a servo drive and translate this through to the gearboxes.
Technically translated tis means to follow or execute a command. A servo electric motor follows the (complex) job given to him.
For industrial applications, servo motors are used in which a drive-system needs to be accurate or highly powerful. The feedback to the electric motor is done through a resolver (analogue sensor of rotation) or encoder (digital sensor of rotation). A servo motor is managed by a servo amplifier, probably with a shaft controller.
The rotation frequency of the actuator is given back by the resolver or encoder. This is capable as well as the rotational speed, also to determine the position of the rotor and the direction of rotation. The servo amplifier compares the set rotational frequency with the measured rotational frequency. Now the servo amplifier can drive the actuator to the required values.
Interesting, AC Servo Motors have no significant disadvantages more! Therefore, why would you utilize a gearbox?
This has the following reasons:
If you want a very low quickness, servo motor and gearbox possibly in combination with an increased torque.
If you want high torque. (Actuators with high torque are available, but they are exponentially more expensive when compared to smaller servomotors)
Inertia matching, to be able to prevent that the strain determines the behaviour of the electric motor.
To be able to absorb the high radial or axial forces of the application form.
If you want to go “nearby” otherwise the servomotor sticks out the application. Gearboxes are available in right-angled versions.
Baldor’s GBSM-series of low backlash, servo engine rated gearheads, install easily and directly onto AC brushless servo motors to supply industrial motion control apparatus with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are made for servo applications requiring precision, durability, and long trouble-free operation.
