Standard applications for these reducers include precision rotary axis drives, traveling gantries & columns, material handling axis drives and electronic line shafting. Industries served include Material Managing, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
The servo gearboxes PT complete the whole range of our servo gearboxes that contain high-end planetary gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, hypoid gearboxes, cycloid gearboxes and also various combinations thereof. All common servo motors can be easily set up with all sizes of our gearboxes. Our PT servo planetary gearboxes guarantee high stiffness and dependable transmission through their particular design. All ring gears, planet gears and sunlight pinions are case – hardened and ground. This provides an outstanding transmission quality and permits precise positioning tasks.
They can be purchased in nine sizes with decrease ratios from 3:1 to 600:1 and result torque capacities up to 16,227 lb.ft. The output can 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 with no need for a coupling. For high precision applications, backlash amounts right down to 1 arc-minute are available. Right-angle and insight shaft versions of these reducers are also available.
Some planetary-geared servo-motors offer additional options. For instance, oil-flow lubrication and cooling lets units operate continually at up to 3 x the nominal torque and power rating. Oil-cooling also continues the actuator cool in high-temperature environments. Various other options include explosionproof styles, alternative materials and coatings, customized shafts, nonstandard engine voltages such as for example 24 or 48 Vdc, special feedback products, and special electrical connectors to operate with most amplifiers.
This standard range of Precision Planetary Reducers are ideal for use in applications that demand high performance, precise positioning and repeatability. They were specifically developed for use with state-of-the-art servo engine technology, providing limited integration of the engine to the unit. Style features include mounting any servo motors (IEC, NEMA, or customized motors), regular low backlash, high torsional stiffness, 95 to 97% efficiency and peaceful running.
Fewer parts also offer small packaging planetary gearbox for servo motor compared to bolt-on reducers. Bolt-on gear-heads often use right-angle gears to reduce the space a reducer extends beyond a machine. Right-angle gears, however, require an additional set of bevel gears to help make the turn. These gears increase the solution’s size, cost, complexity, and total backlash since another mechanism is placed between your load and the electric motor. Usage of beveled gears defeats the benefit of a planetary gearhead entirely.
