The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine powerful with financial efficiency: both lines are also built with helical ground gears, ensuring the very least noise level and smooth running. The full needle bearing has been especially designed to reach high torques that beat the competition for devices of the same size. All planetary carriers are produced as a cage created from solid material. This increases quiet operating characteristics while at the same time improving positioning accuracy and reducing backlash. An additional shaft sealing ring ensures maximum dust and splash water protection relative to protection class IP65 in every lines.
One method to reduce backlash is to use precision gears. The focus on production in precision gears is usually tighter tolerances, so all over the gear will be a tighter, more exact fit. And the tighter match means less play in the gear teeth, which is the cause of backlash in the first place. Of program, precision gears are more expensive, but if the application demands high accuracy, after that precision gearing could be the way to go.
From a gear design perspective, an easy way to reduce backlash is to ensure one’s teeth mesh tightly together. This is typically done by shortening the guts distance servo planetary gearbox between gears. For pre-loading, this can be done using a spring mechanism to carry the gears firmly set up. This also eliminates the enjoy between the gear teeth and thus eliminates backlash.
Of course, the type of gears used can also have a large impact on the amount of backlash. So for instance, some gear types such as stress 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 values, the input stage is definitely dimensionally smaller compared to the output stage. Its short design makes the GSD range the perfect high-end gearbox for space restricted applications. The low standard backlash of the GSD series makes it an ideal fit for highly powerful applications where highest positioning and rate accuracy is required. The flange output produces highest torsional rigidity. For the accommodation of particularly high axial loads, taper roller bearings are optionally available 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 high gearbox rigidity and the absorption of high radial and axial loads. The angular gearboxes of the GSBL line offer the same advantages as the GSB line; the right angle form makes the GSBL line an ideal match for all powerful applications where space is limited.
Incorrect tolerances, bearing misalignment, and manufacturing inconsistencies have a tendency to increase backlash.
AC motors and equipment motors include single-stage motors used in combination with a single-stage AC power and three-stage motors used with a three-stage AC power supply. A single-phase motor can be operated by simply connecting it to a single-phase power via the supplied capacitor. A three-phase motor will not need a capacitor. All you have to is for connecting 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) and also the high-end economy GSN and GFE lines. Particularly ideal applications for the new range are those which place the highest demands on positioning precision, operating noises, working smoothness, bending rigidity and transmitted torque. The planetary gears are made to meet the highest creation requirements – all lines are equipped with precision ground helical gearing, single-piece planetary carriers and full needle bearings.
