Servo gearheads servo motor and gearbox provide mechanical benefit by multiplying electric motor torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back again to the motor.
We supplies the widest range of gear technology providing optimal solutions considerably beyond the capabilities of various other gearhead suppliers.
Have you any idea why we still make use of today gearboxes while servo motors becoming stronger and more advanced? The gearboxes are found in many cases in combination with a servo electric motor, for example because they possess low backlash and are able to cope with high torque. But still we didn’t give a remedy to the previous issue: why! In this article we discuss the procedure 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 where a drive-system needs to be accurate or highly dynamic. The feedback to the engine is performed through a resolver (analogue sensor of rotation) or encoder (digital sensor of rotation). A servo motor is controlled by a servo amplifier, possibly with a shaft controller.
The rotation frequency of the actuator is returned by the resolver or encoder. That is capable as well as the rotational swiftness, also to look for the position of the rotor and the path 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 desired values.
Interesting, AC Servo Motors have no significant disadvantages more! Therefore, why would you utilize a gearbox?
This has the next reasons:
If you prefer a very low speed, possibly in combination with a higher torque.
If you want high torque. (Actuators with high torque are available, however they are exponentially more expensive when compared to smaller servomotors)
Inertia matching, in order to prevent that the load determines the behaviour of the electric motor.
To be able 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 motor rated gearheads, mount easily and directly onto AC brushless servo motors to supply industrial motion control equipment with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are created for servo applications requiring precision, durability, and lengthy trouble-free operation.
