Servo gearheads provide mechanical benefit by multiplying engine torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back again to the motor.
We supplies the widest range of gear systems providing optimal solutions much beyond the capabilities of additional gearhead suppliers.
Are you aware why we still use today gearboxes while servo motors becoming more powerful and more advanced? The gearboxes are found in many cases in mixture with a servo engine, for instance because they have low backlash and so are able to handle high torque. But nonetheless we didn’t give an answer to the previous query: why! In this article we discuss the operation of a servo drive and translate this through to the gearboxes.
servo gearhead Technically translated tis methods to follow or execute a command. A servo motor follows the (complex) task given to him.
For commercial applications, servo motors are used where a drive-system needs to be accurate or highly powerful. The opinions to the motor is performed 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. That is capable as well as the rotational swiftness, also to look for the position of the rotor and the direction of rotation. The servo amplifier compares the established rotational frequency with the measured rotational frequency. At this point the servo amplifier can drive the actuator to the desired values.
Interesting, AC Servo Motors haven’t any significant disadvantages more! Therefore, why would you use a gearbox?
This has the next reasons:
If you prefer a suprisingly low velocity, possibly in mixture with an increased torque.
If you need high torque. (Actuators with high torque can be found, but they are exponentially more expensive compared to the smaller servomotors)
Inertia matching, to be able to prevent that the load determines the behaviour of the electric motor.
To be able to absorb the high radial or axial forces of the application.
If you would like to go “nearby” otherwise the servomotor sticks out the application. Gearboxes can be found in right-angled versions.
Baldor’s GBSM-series of low backlash, servo motor rated gearheads, install easily and directly onto AC brushless servo motors to supply industrial motion control products with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are made for servo applications requiring precision, durability, and long trouble-free operation.
