Observing several guidelines for proper set up is vital on the reliable and appropriate operation from the gearbox or gear motor.
The rules set out listed below are meant as a preliminary manual to deciding on gearbox or gear motor. For effective and correct set up, observe the directions offered during the installation, use the maintenances guide for your gearbox readily available from our product sales division.
Following is a short outline of set up principles:
a) Fastening:
Place gearbox on a surface offering ample rigidity. Mating surfaces needs to be machined and flat.
Mating surfaces should be within definite geometric tolerances (see manual). This is certainly primarily accurate of flange-mounted gearboxes with splined hollow shafts.
In applications that involve high radial loads in the output finish, flange mounting is encouraged for some gearbox sizes as this mounting makes use of the double pilot diameters presented in these gearboxes.
Make certain the gearbox is appropriate to the necessary mounting place.
Use screws of resistance class 8.8 and over to secure the gearbox. Torque up screws on the figures
indicated from the appropriate tables.
With transmitted output torque higher than or equal 70% with the indicated M2max torque, and with
regular movement reversals, use screws with minimum resistance 10.9.
Some gearbox sizes can be fastened making use of both screws or pins. Of pin seated while in the frame the gearboxes be a minimum of one.5 occasions pin diameter.
b) Connections
Safe the connection parts to gearbox input and output. Don’t tap them with hammers or comparable equipment.
To insert these parts, utilize the support screws and threaded holes provided within the shafts. Be sure you clean off any grease or protects from the shafts just before fitting any connection parts.
Fitting hydraulic motors.
Be cautious the O ring concerning motor flange and gearbox input flange when assembling. Install the
hydraulic motor in advance of filling lube oil into the gearbox.
Connecting the hydraulic brake.
The hydraulic circuit should be such to ensure that brake is launched instants before gearbox begins and utilized right after gearbox has stopped. Check out that strain within the hydraulic line for brake release is at zero every time gearbox is stopped.
Path of rotation
Motors are linked to the ideal electrical or hydraulic circuit in accordance with their direction of rotation.
When carrying out these connections, keep in mind that all gearboxes, irrespective of whether while in the in-line or correct angle design, have the same path of rotation the two at input and output.
