Servo gearheads provide mechanical benefit by multiplying motor torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back again to the motor.
We supplies the widest range of gear systems providing optimal solutions much beyond the features of various other gearhead suppliers.
Are you aware why we still use today gearboxes while servo motors becoming stronger and more advanced? The gearboxes are used in many instances in mixture with a servo engine, for example servo gearhead because they have low backlash and are able to deal with high torque. But still we didn’t give a remedy to the previous question: why! In this post we discuss the procedure of a servo drive and translate this to the gearboxes.
Technically translated tis means to follow or execute a command. A servo motor follows the (complex) task given to him.
For commercial applications, servo motors are used where a drive-system has to be accurate or highly powerful. The feedback to the electric motor is done through a resolver (analogue sensor of rotation) or encoder (digital sensor of rotation). A servo engine is managed by a servo amplifier, perhaps with a shaft controller.
The rotation frequency of the actuator is given back by the resolver or encoder. That is capable as well as the rotational rate, also to look for the placement of the rotor and the direction of rotation. The servo amplifier compares the established rotational frequency with the measured rotational frequency. Right now the servo amplifier can drive the actuator to the desired values.
Interesting, AC Servo Motors have no significant disadvantages more! So, why would you use a gearbox?
This has the following reasons:
If you prefer a suprisingly low velocity, possibly in combination with an increased torque.
If you need high torque. (Actuators with high torque can be found, 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 engine.
In order to absorb the high radial or axial forces of the application form.
If you would like to go “around the corner” otherwise the servomotor shines the application. Gearboxes are available in right-angled versions.
Baldor’s GBSM-series of low backlash, servo electric motor rated gearheads, mount easily and directly onto AC brushless servo motors to provide industrial motion control tools with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are designed for servo applications needing precision, durability, and long trouble-free operation.
