Servo gearheads provide mechanical advantage by multiplying motor torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back again to the motor.
We offers the widest range of gear systems providing optimal solutions significantly beyond the capabilities of other gearhead suppliers.
Are you aware why we still make use of today servo gearhead Gearboxes while servo motors becoming more powerful and more advanced? The gearboxes are found in many situations in combination with a servo engine, for instance because they possess low backlash and are able to handle high torque. But still we didn’t give an answer to the previous issue: why! In this article 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 motor 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 powerful. The opinions to the motor is performed 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 in addition to the rotational rate, also to determine the placement 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 have no significant disadvantages more! So, why would you use 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 can be found, but they are exponentially more costly when compared to smaller servomotors)
Inertia matching, to be able to prevent that the load determines the behaviour of the electric motor.
In order to absorb the high radial or axial forces of the application form.
If you want to go “around the corner” 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, mount easily and directly onto AC brushless servo motors to provide industrial motion control gear with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are created for servo applications needing precision, durability, and lengthy trouble-free operation.
