Servo gearheads provide mechanical advantage by multiplying motor torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back to the motor.
We offers the widest range of gear technology providing optimal solutions considerably beyond the capabilities of additional gearhead suppliers.
Are you aware why we still use today gearboxes while servo motors becoming more powerful and more advanced? The gearboxes are found in many cases in mixture with a servo motor, for example because they have low backlash and so are able to deal with high torque. But nonetheless we did not give a remedy to the previous issue: why! In this post 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 engine follows the (complex) job given to him.
For industrial applications, servo motors are used in which a drive-system needs to be accurate or highly powerful. The feedback to the electric motor 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. This is capable as well as the rotational quickness, 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. Now 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 following reasons:
If you prefer a very low swiftness, possibly in servo motor and gearbox 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, to be able to prevent that the strain determines the behaviour of the electric motor.
To be able 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 supply industrial motion control devices with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are created for servo applications requiring precision, durability, and lengthy trouble-free operation.
