The worm drive servo high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine high performance with economic efficiency: both lines are also equipped with helical ground gears, ensuring a minimum noise level and smooth running. The full needle bearing provides been especially made to reach high torques that beat the competition for products of the same size. All planetary carriers are produced as a cage created from solid material. This increases silent operating characteristics while at exactly the same time improving positioning accuracy and reducing backlash. Yet another shaft sealing band ensures maximum dirt and splash water safety in accordance with protection class IP65 in every lines.
One way to reduce backlash is to use precision gears. The focus on manufacturing in precision gears is tighter tolerances, so all around the gear is a tighter, more specific match. And the tighter match means much less play in the gear teeth, which may be the cause of backlash to begin with. Of course, precision gears are more costly, but if the application calls for high accuracy, then precision gearing could be the way to go.
From a gear design perspective, a simple way to reduce backlash is to ensure one’s teeth mesh tightly together. That is typically performed by shortening the center distance between gears. As for pre-loading, this is often done utilizing a spring mechanism to carry the gears firmly in place. This also eliminates the play between your gear teeth and therefore eliminates backlash.
Of course, the type of gears used can also have a huge impact on the amount of backlash. So for example, some gear types such as strain wave gears, or harmonic gear drives, have zero backlash.
The GSD, GSB & GSBL high-end gearbox lines are constructed in a space-optimized, two-stage design. Due to the lower torque ideals, the input stage is usually dimensionally smaller compared to the result stage. Its short design makes the GSD line the perfect high-end gearbox for space restricted applications. The low standard backlash of the GSD range makes it an ideal fit for highly dynamic applications where highest positioning and rate accuracy is required. The flange output creates highest torsional rigidity. For the lodging of particularly high axial loads, taper roller bearings are elective in sizes with 90 mm diameter or higher. The GSB line means high performance in combination with low backlash and high precision. Its robust, one-piece housing allows for a higher gearbox rigidity and the absorption of high radial and axial loads. The angular gearboxes of the GSBL collection offer the same advantages as the GSB collection; the right angle form makes the GSBL range an ideal match for all powerful applications where space is bound.
Incorrect tolerances, bearing misalignment, and manufacturing inconsistencies have a tendency to increase backlash.
AC motors and gear motors include single-phase motors used in combination with a single-phase AC power supply and three-stage motors used with a three-stage AC power supply. A single-phase motor can be operated by simply linking it to a single-phase power via the provided capacitor. A three-phase motor will not need a capacitor. All you have to is to connect the motor right to a three-phase AC power supply.
The new planetary gearbox series includes the high-end gearbox lines GSD (flange gear), GSB (inline) and GSBL (angle gear) along with the high-end economy GSN and GFE lines. Particularly appropriate applications for the brand new range are those which place the highest demands on positioning accuracy, operating noises, operating smoothness, bending rigidity and transmitted torque. The planetary gears are made to meet the highest production requirements – all lines are equipped with precision surface helical gearing, single-piece planetary carriers and full needle bearings.
