Servo gearheads provide mechanical benefit by multiplying electric motor torque while reducing the driven load’s servo motor and gearbox reflected inertia back to the motor.
We supplies the widest range of gear systems providing optimal solutions far beyond the features of other gearhead suppliers.
Do you know why we still make use of today gearboxes while servo motors becoming stronger and more advanced? The gearboxes are found in many situations in mixture with a servo electric motor, for example because they have low backlash and so are able to deal with high torque. But nonetheless we did not give a remedy to the previous issue: why! In this article we discuss the procedure of a servo drive and translate this to the gearboxes.
Technically translated tis methods 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 engine is performed through a resolver (analogue sensor of rotation) or encoder (digital sensor of rotation). A servo engine is controlled by a servo amplifier, perhaps with a shaft controller.
The rotation frequency of the actuator is given back by the resolver or encoder. This is capable as well as the rotational rate, also to look for the placement of the rotor and the path of rotation. The servo amplifier compares the established rotational frequency with the measured rotational frequency. At this point the servo amplifier can drive the actuator to the required values.
Interesting, AC Servo Motors haven’t any significant disadvantages more! Therefore, why would you use a gearbox?
This has the next reasons:
If you want a suprisingly low quickness, possibly in mixture with a higher torque.
If you need high torque. (Actuators with high torque are available, however they are exponentially more costly when compared to smaller servomotors)
Inertia matching, in order to prevent that the load determines the behaviour of the engine.
To be able to absorb the high radial or axial forces of the application.
If you would like to go “around the corner” otherwise the servomotor shines the application. Gearboxes can be found in right-angled versions.
Baldor’s GBSM-series of low backlash, servo engine rated gearheads, attach easily and directly onto AC brushless servo motors to supply industrial motion control tools with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are created for servo applications requiring precision, durability, and long trouble-free operation.
