For applications where adjustable speeds are essential, typically an AC engine with an Inverter or brush motors are used. Brushless DC motors are an advanced option because of their wide speed range, low warmth and maintenance-free procedure. Stepper Motors offer high torque and simple low speed operation.
Speed is typically Center-drive gear motor controlled by manual procedure on the driver or by an exterior change, or with an exterior 0~10 VDC. Rate control systems typically make use of gearheads to increase result torque. Gear types range from spur, worm or helical / hypoid based on torque demands and budgets.
Mounting configurations vary to depending on space constraints or design of the application.
The drives are powerful and durable and show a compact and lightweight design.
The compact design is made possible through the combination of a spur/worm gear drive with motors optimized for performance. That is accomplished through the constant application of aluminum die casting technology, which ensures a high degree of rigidity for the gear and motor housing concurrently.
Each drive is produced and tested specifically for every order and customer. A advanced modular system permits an excellent diversity of types and a optimum amount of customization to client requirements.
In both rotation directions, described end positions are guarded by two position limit switches. This uncomplicated option does not only simplify the cabling, but also can help you configure the finish positions efficiently. The high shut-off precision of the limit switches guarantees safe operation shifting forwards and backwards.
A gearmotor delivers high torque at low horsepower or low speed. The speed specs for these motors are regular speed and stall-speed torque. These motors make use of gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to lessen speed, which makes more torque available. Gearmotors ‘re normally utilized in applications that require a lot of force to go heavy objects.
More often than not, most industrial gearmotors make use of ac motors, typically fixed-speed motors. However, dc motors can also be utilized as gearmotors … a lot of which are found in automotive applications.
Gearmotors have a number of advantages over other types of motor/gear combinations. Perhaps most of all, can simplify design and implementation by eliminating the step of separately developing and integrating the motors with the gears, therefore reducing engineering costs.
Another benefit of gearmotors is certainly that having the right combination of motor and gearing may prolong design life and allow for ideal power management and use.
Such problems are common when a separate motor and gear reducer are connected together and lead to more engineering time and cost along with the potential for misalignment leading to bearing failure and ultimately reduced useful life.
Developments in gearmotor technology include the use of new specialty materials, coatings and bearings, and in addition improved gear tooth designs that are optimized for sound reduction, increase in power and improved life, which allows for improved functionality in smaller deals. More following the jump.
Conceptually, motors and gearboxes could be combined and matched as needed to greatest fit the application, but in the finish, the complete gearmotor may be the driving factor. There are many of motors and gearbox types which can be combined; for example, the right angle wormgear, planetary and parallel shaft gearbox can be combined with long lasting magnet dc, ac induction, or brushless dc motors.
