Servo gearheads provide mechanical benefit by multiplying engine torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back to the motor.
We offers the widest range of gear systems providing optimal solutions considerably beyond the features of additional gearhead suppliers.
Do you know why we still use today gearboxes while servo motors becoming stronger and more advanced? The gearboxes are used in many instances in combination with a servo electric motor, for example because they possess low backlash and so are able to deal with high torque. But still we didn’t give an answer to the previous query: why! In this article we discuss the procedure of a servo drive and translate this to the gearboxes.
Technically translated tis means to follow or execute a command. A servo electric motor follows the (complex) task given to him.
For commercial applications, servo motors are used in which a drive-system has to be accurate or highly powerful. The feedback to the motor is performed through a resolver (analogue sensor of rotation) or encoder (digital sensor of rotation). A servo engine is controlled by a servo amplifier, perhaps with a shaft controller.
The rotation frequency of the actuator is given back by the resolver or encoder. This is capable as well as the rotational velocity, also to determine the placement of the rotor and the direction of rotation. The servo amplifier compares the established rotational frequency with the measured rotational frequency. Now the servo amplifier can drive the actuator to the desired values.
Interesting, AC Servo Motors have no significant disadvantages more! So, why would you utilize a gearbox?
This has the next reasons:
If you want a very low quickness, possibly in mixture with an increased torque.
If you want high torque. (Actuators with high torque can be found, but they are exponentially more expensive compared to the smaller servomotors)
Inertia servo motor and gearbox matching, to be able to prevent that the strain determines the behaviour of the electric motor.
In order to absorb the high radial or axial forces of the application.
If you would like to go “nearby” otherwise the servomotor shines the application. Gearboxes can be found in right-angled versions.
Baldor’s GBSM-series of low backlash, servo motor rated gearheads, mount easily and directly onto AC brushless servo motors to provide industrial motion control tools with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are created for servo applications needing precision, durability, and long trouble-free operation.
