The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine powerful with financial efficiency: both lines are also built with helical ground gears, ensuring a minimum noise level and smooth running. The full needle bearing offers been especially made to reach high torques that defeat the competition for units of the same size. All planetary carriers are manufactured as a cage created from solid material. This increases calm 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 method to reduce backlash is to use precision gears. The concentrate on production in precision gears is tighter tolerances, so all around the gear will be a tighter, more specific match. And the tighter suit means much less play in the gear teeth, which may be the trigger of backlash in the first place. Of training course, precision gears are more expensive, but if the application calls for high accuracy, after that precision gearing may be the way to go.
From a equipment design perspective, a simple way to reduce backlash is to ensure one’s teeth mesh tightly together. This is typically performed by shortening the center distance between gears. For pre-loading, this could be done using a spring mechanism to carry the gears firmly in place. This also eliminates the enjoy between the gear teeth and thus eliminates backlash.
Of course, the kind of gears used can also have a huge impact on the amount of backlash. So for instance, some equipment types such as stress wave gears, or harmonic gear drives, possess zero backlash.
The GSD, GSB & GSBL high-end gearbox lines are constructed in a space-optimized, two-stage design. Because of the lower torque values, the input stage is usually dimensionally smaller than the output stage. Its short design makes the GSD series the ideal high-end gearbox for space restricted applications. The low regular backlash of the GSD line makes it the perfect fit for highly dynamic applications where highest positioning and rate accuracy is required. The flange output creates highest torsional rigidity. For the accommodation of especially high axial loads, taper roller bearings are elective in sizes with 90 mm diameter or higher. The GSB line stands for high performance in mixture with low backlash and high precision. Its robust, one-piece housing allows for a high gearbox rigidity and the absorption of high radial and axial loads. The angular gearboxes of the GSBL range provide same advantages as the GSB line; the right angle shape makes the GSBL series an ideal match for all dynamic applications where space is bound.
