The servo planetary gearbox high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine high performance with financial efficiency: both lines are also equipped with helical ground gears, ensuring a minimum noise level and smooth running. The entire needle bearing has been especially made to reach high torques that defeat the competition for models of the same size. All planetary carriers are produced as a cage made from solid materials. This increases silent operating characteristics while at exactly the same time improving positioning precision and reducing backlash. An additional shaft sealing band ensures maximum dust and splash water protection relative to protection course IP65 in all lines.
One method to reduce backlash is to use precision gears. The concentrate on production in precision gears is certainly tighter tolerances, so all around the gear will be a tighter, more precise match. And the tighter match means much less play in the apparatus teeth, which is the cause of backlash in the first place. Of course, precision gears are more expensive, if the application demands high accuracy, then precision gearing could be the way to go.
From a equipment design perspective, a simple way to reduce backlash is to make sure the teeth mesh tightly together. This is typically completed by shortening the guts distance between gears. For pre-loading, this is often done using a spring mechanism to hold the gears firmly set up. This also eliminates the play between the gear teeth and therefore eliminates backlash.
Of course, the type of gears used can also have a large impact on the quantity of backlash. So for example, some gear types such as stress wave gears, or harmonic equipment 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 usually dimensionally smaller than the output stage. Its short style makes the GSD series the perfect high-end gearbox for space limited applications. The low standard backlash of the GSD line makes it an ideal fit for highly dynamic applications where highest positioning and velocity accuracy is necessary. The flange output produces highest torsional rigidity. For the accommodation of especially high axial loads, taper roller bearings are elective in sizes with 90 mm diameter or higher. The GSB line means high performance in mixture 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 provide same advantages as the GSB line; the right angle form makes the GSBL line the perfect match for all dynamic applications where space is bound.
Incorrect tolerances, bearing misalignment, and manufacturing inconsistencies have a tendency to increase backlash.
AC motors and equipment motors include single-phase motors used with a single-stage AC power and three-phase motors used in combination with a three-stage AC power supply. A single-phase motor could be operated by simply connecting it to a single-phase power supply via the supplied capacitor. A three-phase motor does not require a capacitor. All you need is to connect the motor directly to a three-stage 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 new range are those which place the best demands on positioning accuracy, operating noises, working smoothness, bending rigidity and transmitted torque. The planetary gears are created to meet the highest production requirements – all lines are equipped with precision surface helical gearing, single-piece planetary carriers and full needle bearings.
