The 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 entire needle bearing offers been especially designed to reach high torques that defeat the competition for products of the same size. All planetary carriers are manufactured as a cage created from solid material. This increases noiseless operating characteristics while at the same time improving zero backlash planetary gearbox positioning accuracy and reducing backlash. An additional shaft sealing ring ensures maximum dirt and splash water protection in accordance with protection course IP65 in all lines.
One method to reduce backlash is by using precision gears. The concentrate on production in precision gears is certainly tighter tolerances, so all around the gear is a tighter, more exact suit. And the tighter suit means much less play in the gear teeth, which may be the cause of backlash to begin with. Of training course, precision gears are more costly, if the application calls for high accuracy, then precision gearing may be the way to go.
From a gear design perspective, an easy way to reduce backlash is to ensure the teeth mesh tightly together. That is typically performed by shortening the guts distance between gears. As for pre-loading, this is often done using a spring mechanism to hold the gears firmly set up. 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 instance, some equipment 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. Because of the lower torque values, the input stage is dimensionally smaller than the output stage. Its short design makes the GSD range the ideal high-end gearbox for space restricted applications. The low standard backlash of the GSD range makes it an ideal fit for highly powerful applications where highest positioning and rate accuracy is necessary. The flange result generates highest torsional rigidity. For the lodging of particularly high axial loads, taper roller bearings are optionally available in sizes with 90 mm diameter or more. The GSB line means high performance in mixture 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 series provide same advantages as the GSB collection; the right angle form makes the GSBL series the perfect match for all powerful applications where space is limited.
Incorrect tolerances, bearing misalignment, and manufacturing inconsistencies tend to increase backlash.
AC motors and equipment motors include single-stage motors used in combination with a single-stage AC power supply and three-stage motors used in combination with a three-phase AC power. 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 require a capacitor. All you have to is for connecting the motor directly to a three-phase AC power supply.
The brand new planetary gearbox series includes the high-end gearbox lines GSD (flange equipment), GSB (inline) and GSBL (angle gear) as well as the high-end economy GSN and GFE lines. Particularly appropriate applications for the new range are those that place the best demands on positioning precision, operating noises, working smoothness, bending rigidity and transmitted torque. The planetary gears are created to meet the highest production requirements – all lines include precision surface helical gearing, single-piece planetary carriers and full needle bearings.
