The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine powerful with economic efficiency: both lines are also equipped with helical ground gears, ensuring the very least noise level and smooth running. The full needle bearing offers been especially designed to reach high torques that beat the competition for devices of the same size. All planetary carriers are produced as a cage made from solid materials. This increases peaceful operating characteristics while at the same time improving positioning accuracy and reducing backlash. Yet another shaft sealing ring ensures maximum dirt and splash water protection relative to protection course IP65 in every lines.
One method to reduce backlash is to use precision gears. The focus on manufacturing in precision gears is usually tighter tolerances, so all around the gear is a tighter, more precise fit. And the tighter suit means much less play in the apparatus teeth, which is the cause of backlash in the first place. Of course, precision gears are more costly, but if the application demands high accuracy, after that precision gearing may be the way to go.
From a gear design perspective, a simple way to reduce backlash is to make sure one’s teeth mesh tightly together. That is typically done by shortening the center distance between gears. For pre-loading, this could be done using a spring mechanism to carry the gears firmly set up. This also eliminates the perform between your gear teeth and thus eliminates backlash.
Of course, the kind of gears used can also have a huge impact on the amount of backlash. So for instance, some gear types such as stress wave gears, or harmonic gear drives, possess zero backlash.
The GSD, GSB & GSBL high-end gearbox lines are constructed in a space-optimized, two-stage design. Due to the lower torque values, the input stage can be dimensionally smaller compared to the output stage. Its short style makes the GSD series the ideal high-end gearbox for space limited applications. The low regular backlash of the GSD collection makes it the perfect fit for highly dynamic applications where highest positioning and rate accuracy is required. The flange output generates highest torsional rigidity. For the lodging of particularly high axial loads, taper roller bearings are optionally available in sizes with 90 mm diameter or more. The GSB line stands for high performance in combination 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 series; the right angle form makes the GSBL collection an ideal match for all powerful applications where space is limited.
