The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine high performance with financial efficiency: both lines are also built with helical ground gears, ensuring a minimum noise level and smooth running. The entire needle bearing has been especially made to reach high torques that beat the competition for systems of the same size. All planetary carriers are manufactured as a cage made from solid material. This increases tranquil operating characteristics while at the same time improving positioning accuracy and reducing backlash. Yet another shaft sealing ring ensures maximum dust and splash water protection in accordance with protection course IP65 in every lines.
One way to reduce backlash is to use precision gears. The concentrate on manufacturing in precision gears can be tighter tolerances, so all around the gear is a tighter, more precise fit. And the tighter fit means less play in the apparatus teeth, which is the cause of backlash to begin with. Of course, precision gears are more costly, if the application demands high accuracy, after that precision gearing may be the way to go.
From a gear design perspective, a simple way to lessen backlash is to ensure the teeth mesh tightly together. That is typically carried out by shortening the guts distance between gears. As for pre-loading, this is often done utilizing a spring mechanism to carry the gears firmly set up. This also eliminates the perform between the gear teeth and thus eliminates backlash.
Of course, the type of gears used can also have a large impact on the quantity of backlash. So for instance, some equipment types such as strain wave gears, or harmonic equipment drives, have zero backlash.
The GSD, GSB & GSBL high-end gearbox lines are constructed in a space-optimized, two-stage design. Due to the lower torque values, the input stage is definitely dimensionally smaller compared to the output stage. Its short design makes the GSD line the perfect high-end gearbox for space restricted applications. The low regular backlash of the GSD line makes it the perfect fit for highly powerful applications where highest positioning and velocity accuracy is required. The flange output generates highest torsional rigidity. For the accommodation of particularly high axial loads, taper roller bearings are optionally available in sizes with 90 mm diameter or more. The GSB line means high performance in mixture with low backlash and high precision. Its robust, one-piece housing allows for a higher gearbox rigidity and the absorption of high radial and axial loads. The angular gearboxes of the GSBL series provide same advantages as the GSB line; the right angle shape makes the GSBL collection an ideal match for all powerful applications where space is limited.
