Servo gearheads provide mechanical benefit by multiplying motor torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back again to the motor.
We offers the widest range of gear systems providing optimal solutions much beyond the features of additional gearhead suppliers.
Are you aware why we still make use of today gearboxes while servo motors becoming more powerful and more advanced? The gearboxes are found in many situations in mixture with a servo motor, for example servo motor and gearbox because they possess low backlash and are able to cope with high torque. But still we did not give an answer to the previous issue: why! In this article we discuss the procedure of a servo drive and translate this through to the gearboxes.
Technically translated tis means to follow or execute a command. A servo electric motor follows the (complex) job given to him.
For industrial applications, servo motors are used where a drive-system needs to be accurate or highly powerful. The feedback to the engine is performed through a resolver (analogue sensor of rotation) or encoder (digital sensor of rotation). A servo engine is controlled by a servo amplifier, probably with a shaft controller.
The rotation frequency of the actuator is returned by the resolver or encoder. That is capable as well as the rotational quickness, also to look for the placement of the rotor and the direction of rotation. The servo amplifier compares the arranged rotational frequency with the measured rotational frequency. Right now 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 very low rate, possibly in mixture with an increased torque.
If you want high torque. (Actuators with high torque are available, but they are exponentially more expensive compared to the smaller servomotors)
Inertia matching, in order to prevent that the load determines the behaviour of the motor.
In order to absorb the high radial or axial forces of the application form.
If you want to go “around the corner” otherwise the servomotor sticks out the application. Gearboxes are available in right-angled versions.
Baldor’s GBSM-series of low backlash, servo engine rated gearheads, mount easily and directly onto AC brushless servo motors to supply industrial motion control gear with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are made for servo applications needing precision, durability, and long trouble-free operation.
