Servo gearheads provide mechanical benefit by multiplying servo gearhead engine torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back to the motor.
We offers the widest range of gear technology providing optimal solutions significantly beyond the features of additional gearhead suppliers.
Are you aware why we still make use of today gearboxes while servo motors becoming stronger and more complex? The gearboxes are used in many cases in combination with a servo engine, for instance because they possess low backlash and are able to deal with high torque. But still we didn’t give a remedy to the previous question: why! In this article we discuss the procedure of a servo drive and translate this through to the gearboxes.
Technically translated tis methods to follow or execute a command. A servo engine follows the (complex) task given to him.
For industrial applications, servo motors are used in which a drive-system needs to be accurate or highly dynamic. The feedback to the engine is done 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. This is capable as well as the rotational speed, also to look for the position of the rotor and the direction of rotation. The servo amplifier compares the arranged 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! So, why would you use a gearbox?
This has the next reasons:
If you want a suprisingly low velocity, possibly in mixture with an increased torque.
If you want high torque. (Actuators with high torque can be found, but they are exponentially more costly compared to the smaller servomotors)
Inertia matching, to be able to prevent that the strain determines the behaviour of the engine.
To be able to absorb the high radial or axial forces of the application form.
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 electric motor rated gearheads, attach easily and directly onto AC brushless servo motors to provide industrial motion control devices with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are designed for servo applications requiring precision, durability, and lengthy trouble-free operation.
