Servo gearheads provide mechanical benefit by multiplying electric 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 capabilities of various other gearhead suppliers.
Have you any idea why we still make use of today gearboxes while servo motors becoming more powerful and more complex? The gearboxes are used in many cases in combination with a servo electric motor, for example because they have low backlash and so are able to cope with high torque. But nonetheless we did not give a remedy 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) job given to him.
For industrial applications, servo motors are used where a drive-system has 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 engine is managed 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 path of rotation. The servo amplifier compares the set rotational frequency with the measured rotational frequency. Today the servo amplifier can drive the actuator to the required 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 prefer a very low acceleration, possibly in mixture with an increased torque.
If you want high torque. (Actuators with high torque are available, however they are exponentially more expensive compared to the smaller servomotors)
Inertia servo gearhead matching, in order 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 shines the application. Gearboxes are available in right-angled versions.
Baldor’s GBSM-series of low backlash, servo engine rated gearheads, attach easily and directly onto AC brushless servo motors to supply industrial motion control apparatus with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are designed for servo applications requiring precision, durability, and long trouble-free operation.
