Common applications for these reducers include precision rotary axis drives, traveling gantries & columns, materials handling axis drives and digital line shafting. Industries offered include Material Handling, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
The servo gearboxes PT complete the complete range of our servo gearboxes that contain high-end planetary gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, hypoid gearboxes, cycloid gearboxes in addition to various combinations thereof. All common servo motors could be quickly set up with all sizes of our gearboxes. Our PT servo planetary gearboxes assure high stiffness and reliable transmission through their particular design. All band gears, world gears and sun 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 elements with no need for a coupling. For high precision applications, backlash amounts right down to 1 arc-minute can be found. Right-angle and insight shaft versions of these reducers are also offered.
Some planetary-geared servo-motors offer additional options. For example, oil-movement lubrication and cooling lets products operate planetary gearbox for servo motor constantly at up to 3 x the nominal torque and power rating. Oil-cooling also keeps the actuator great in high-temperature environments. Additional options include explosionproof styles, alternative components and coatings, custom shafts, nonstandard engine voltages such as for example 24 or 48 Vdc, special feedback gadgets, and special electrical connectors to use with most amplifiers.
This standard range of Precision Planetary Reducers are perfect for use in applications that demand powerful, precise positioning and repeatability. These were specifically developed for use with state-of-the-art servo engine technology, providing tight integration of the engine to the unit. Design features include mounting any servo motors (IEC, NEMA, or personalized motors), standard low backlash, high torsional stiffness, 95 to 97% efficiency and calm running.
Fewer components also offer small packaging compared to bolt-on reducers. Bolt-on gear-heads frequently use right-angle gears to reduce the length a reducer extends beyond a machine. Right-angle gears, however, require an additional group of bevel gears to make the switch. These gears boost the solution’s size, cost, complexity, and total backlash since another mechanism is placed between the load and the motor. Use of beveled gears defeats the advantage of a planetary gearhead completely.
