Servo gearheads provide mechanical advantage by multiplying engine torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back again to the motor.
We offers the widest range of gear technologies providing optimal solutions significantly beyond the features of various other gearhead suppliers.
Have you any idea why we still use today gearboxes while servo motors becoming stronger and more advanced? The gearboxes are found in many instances in mixture with a servo electric motor, for instance because they possess low backlash and so are able to deal with high torque. But still we didn’t give a remedy to the previous question: why! In this post we discuss the operation 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) job given to him.
For commercial applications, servo motors are used in which a drive-system needs to be accurate or highly dynamic. The opinions to the engine is performed through a resolver (analogue sensor of rotation) or encoder (digital sensor of rotation). A servo engine is managed by a servo amplifier, perhaps 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 acceleration, also to determine the placement of the rotor and the path of rotation. The servo amplifier compares the set rotational frequency with the measured rotational frequency. At this point the servo amplifier can drive the actuator to the required values.
Interesting, AC Servo Motors have no significant disadvantages more! So, why would you utilize a gearbox?
This has the following reasons:
If you want a very low quickness, possibly in combination with an increased torque.
If you need high torque. (Actuators with high torque are available, however they are exponentially more costly when compared to smaller servomotors)
Inertia matching, in order to prevent that the load determines the behaviour of the motor.
To be able to absorb the high radial or axial forces of the application.
If you want to go “nearby” otherwise the servomotor sticks out the application. Gearboxes are available 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 supply industrial motion control devices with torque multiplication and proper servo gearhead inertial matching. These gearheads are made for servo applications needing precision, durability, and long trouble-free operation.
