Standard applications for these reducers include precision rotary axis drives, traveling gantries & columns, material handling axis drives and electronic line shafting. Industries offered include Material Managing, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
The servo gearboxes PT complete the whole selection of our servo gearboxes that consist of high-end planetary gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, hypoid gearboxes, cycloid gearboxes along with various combinations thereof. All common servo motors can be very easily set up with all sizes of our gearboxes. Our PT servo planetary gearboxes assure high stiffness and reliable transmission through their unique design. All band gears, world gears and sunlight pinions are case – hardened and ground. This gives a superb transmission quality and permits precise positioning tasks.
They can be purchased in nine sizes with decrease ratios from 3:1 to 600:1 and output torque capacities up to 16,227 lb.ft. The output could be provided with a good shaft or ISO 9409-1 flange, for mounting to rotary or indexing tables, pinion gears, pulleys or other drive components without the need for a coupling. For high precision applications, planetary gearbox for servo motor backlash amounts right down to 1 arc-minute are available. Right-angle and input shaft versions of these reducers are also offered.
Some planetary-geared servo-motors offer additional options. For example, oil-movement lubrication and cooling lets units operate constantly at up to three times the nominal torque and power rating. Oil-cooling also continues the actuator great in high-temperature environments. Other options include explosionproof styles, alternative components and coatings, custom shafts, nonstandard motor voltages such as for example 24 or 48 Vdc, special feedback gadgets, and special electric connectors to operate with most amplifiers.
This standard selection of Precision Planetary Reducers are perfect for use in applications that demand high performance, precise positioning and repeatability. These were specifically developed for use with state-of-the-art servo electric motor technology, providing limited integration of the engine to the unit. Design features include installation any servo motors (IEC, NEMA, or personalized motors), regular low backlash, high torsional stiffness, 95 to 97% efficiency and quiet running.
Fewer components also offer compact packaging compared to bolt-on reducers. Bolt-on gear-heads regularly use right-position gears to reduce the space a reducer extends beyond a machine. Right-position gears, however, require an additional set of bevel gears to help make the change. These gears boost the solution’s size, price, complexity, and total backlash since another mechanism is placed between the load and the electric motor. Usage of beveled gears defeats the advantage of a planetary gearhead completely.
