The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine powerful with economic efficiency: both lines are also equipped with helical ground gears, ensuring a minimum noise level and smooth running. The full needle bearing has been especially made to reach high torques that beat the competition for units of the same size. All planetary carriers are manufactured as a cage created from solid materials. This increases silent operating characteristics while at the same time improving positioning accuracy and reducing backlash. Yet another shaft sealing ring ensures maximum dust and splash water safety relative to protection class IP65 in all lines.
One way to reduce backlash is to use precision gears. The focus on manufacturing in precision gears is definitely tighter tolerances, so all around the gear is a tighter, more specific match. And the tighter match means much less play in the gear teeth, which may be the cause of backlash in the first place. Of course, precision gears are more expensive, but if the application calls for high accuracy, then precision gearing may be the way to go.
From a gear design perspective, a simple way to reduce backlash is to ensure one’s teeth mesh tightly together. That is typically performed by shortening the center distance between gears. As for pre-loading, this is often done utilizing a spring mechanism to carry the gears firmly in place. This also eliminates the enjoy between your gear teeth and therefore eliminates backlash.
Of course, the type of gears used may also have a huge impact on the amount of backlash. So for example, some equipment types such as strain wave gears, or harmonic gear drives, have zero backlash.
The GSD, GSB & GSBL high-end gearbox lines are constructed in a space-optimized, two-stage design. Because of the lower torque values, the input stage is usually dimensionally smaller compared to the output stage. Its short style makes the GSD line the ideal high-end gearbox for space restricted applications. The low standard backlash of the GSD line makes it the perfect fit for highly powerful applications where highest positioning and rate accuracy is required. The flange output produces highest torsional rigidity. For the lodging of especially high axial loads, taper roller bearings are optionally available in sizes with 90 mm diameter or higher. The GSB line means high performance in combination with low backlash and high precision. Its robust, one-piece housing permits a high gearbox rigidity and the absorption of high radial and axial loads. The angular gearboxes of the GSBL collection provide same advantages as the GSB series; the right angle shape makes the GSBL line the perfect match for all dynamic applications where space is bound.
