Servo gearheads provide mechanical benefit by multiplying motor torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back to the motor.
We supplies the widest selection of gear technologies providing optimal solutions much beyond the features of additional gearhead suppliers.
Are you aware why we still use today gearboxes while servo motors becoming stronger and more complex? The gearboxes are found in many instances in mixture with a servo electric motor, for example because they possess low backlash and are able to cope with high torque. But nonetheless we didn’t give a remedy to the previous question: why! In this article we discuss the operation of a servo drive and translate this through to the gearboxes.
Technically translated tis means to follow or execute a command. A servo motor follows the (complex) job given to him.
For commercial applications, servo motors are used in which a drive-system has 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 speed, also to determine the placement of the rotor and the path of rotation. The servo servo gearhead amplifier compares the set 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 utilize a gearbox?
This has the next reasons:
If you want a suprisingly low velocity, possibly in combination with an increased torque.
If you want high torque. (Actuators with high torque are available, but they are exponentially more expensive when compared to smaller servomotors)
Inertia matching, in order 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 want to go “around the corner” 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, attach 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.
