Servo gearheads provide mechanical benefit by multiplying electric motor torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back to the motor.

We supplies the widest selection of gear technology providing optimal solutions much beyond the features of additional gearhead suppliers.
Have you any idea why we still use today gearboxes while servo motors becoming more powerful and more advanced? The gearboxes are used in many situations in combination with a servo motor, for instance because they possess low backlash and so are able to handle high torque. But still we did not give a remedy to the previous question: why! In this post we discuss the operation of a servo drive and translate this to the gearboxes.
Technically translated tis means to follow or execute a command. A servo motor follows the (complex) task given to him.

For industrial applications, servo motors are used in which a drive-system has to be accurate or highly powerful. The feedback to the 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, perhaps with a shaft controller.

The rotation frequency of the actuator is given back by the resolver or encoder. This is capable in addition to the rotational acceleration, also to determine the position of the rotor and the direction of rotation. The servo amplifier compares the arranged rotational frequency with the measured rotational frequency. Right now the servo amplifier can drive the actuator to the desired values.
servo gearhead Interesting, AC Servo Motors have no significant disadvantages more! Therefore, why would you use a gearbox?
This has the next reasons:

If you want a very low swiftness, possibly in combination with a higher torque.
If you need high torque. (Actuators with high torque are available, however they are exponentially more costly compared to the smaller servomotors)
Inertia matching, in order to prevent that the strain determines the behaviour of the motor.
In order to absorb the high radial or axial forces of the application form.
If you want to go “around the corner” otherwise the servomotor shines the application. Gearboxes can be found in right-angled versions.
Baldor’s GBSM-series of low backlash, servo electric motor rated gearheads, mount 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 lengthy trouble-free operation.
