Observing some principles for proper set up is important on the dependable and proper operation of your gearbox or gear motor.
The principles set out here are intended like a preliminary guide to picking gearbox or gear motor. For powerful and suitable set up, observe the instructions offered while in the set up, utilize the maintenances guide for your gearbox readily available from our sales department.
Following is often a quick outline of installation rules:
a) Fastening:
Location gearbox on a surface supplying sufficient rigidity. Mating surfaces should be machined and flat.
Mating surfaces needs to be within definite geometric tolerances (see guide). This is often primarily true of flange-mounted gearboxes with splined hollow shafts.
In applications that involve higher radial loads in the output end, flange mounting is advisable for some gearbox sizes as this mounting can make utilization of the double pilot diameters supplied in these gearboxes.
Make sure the gearbox is suitable to the required mounting position.
Use screws of resistance class 8.eight and over to secure the gearbox. Torque up screws to the figures
indicated from the related tables.
With transmitted output torque better than or equal 70% with the indicated M2max torque, and with
frequent motion reversals, use screws with minimum resistance ten.9.
Some gearbox sizes can be fastened employing either screws or pins. Of pin seated within the frame the gearboxes be a minimum of one.5 instances pin diameter.
b) Connections
Secure the connection elements to gearbox input and output. Tend not to tap them with hammers or equivalent equipment.
To insert these parts, make use of the support screws and threaded holes offered to the shafts. Make sure to clean off any grease or protects from the shafts ahead of fitting any connection elements.
Fitting hydraulic motors.
Be careful the O ring involving motor flange and gearbox input flange when assembling. Set up the
hydraulic motor in advance of filling lube oil to the gearbox.
Connecting the hydraulic brake.
The hydraulic circuit needs to be this kind of to make certain that brake is launched instants ahead of gearbox starts and applied right after gearbox has stopped. Test that pressure within the hydraulic line for brake release is at zero every time gearbox is stopped.
Route of rotation
Motors are linked for the ideal electric or hydraulic circuit according to their course of rotation.
When carrying out these connections, bear in mind that all gearboxes, irrespective of whether inside the in-line or appropriate angle layout, possess the exact same route of rotation both at input and output. For more information with the connection of electric and hydraulic motors, see pertinent sections on this catalogue.
