Standard applications for these reducers include precision rotary axis drives, traveling gantries & columns, material handling axis drives and digital line shafting. Industries offered include Material Managing, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
The servo gearboxes PT complete the complete selection of our servo gearboxes that consist of high-end planetary gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, hypoid gearboxes, cycloid gearboxes in addition to various combinations thereof. All common servo motors could be quickly installed with all sizes of our gearboxes. Our PT servo planetary gearboxes guarantee high stiffness and dependable transmission through their unique design. All band gears, planet gears and sun pinions are case – hardened and ground. This gives a superb transmission quality and allows for precise positioning tasks.
They can be purchased in nine sizes with reduction ratios from 3:1 to 600:1 and output torque capacities up to 16,227 lb.ft. The output can be provided with a good shaft or ISO 9409-1 flange, for installation to rotary or indexing tables, pinion gears, pulleys or other drive elements with no need for a coupling. For high precision applications, backlash levels right down to 1 arc-minute are available. Right-angle and insight shaft versions of these reducers are also available.
Some planetary-geared servo-motors offer additional options. For example, oil-movement lubrication and cooling lets models operate continuously at up to three times the nominal torque and power rating. Oil-cooling also keeps the actuator awesome in high-temperature environments. Additional options include explosionproof designs, alternative materials and coatings, custom shafts, nonstandard motor voltages such as for example 24 or 48 Vdc, special feedback gadgets, and special electric connectors to operate with most amplifiers.
This standard selection of Precision Planetary Reducers are perfect for use in applications that demand powerful, precise positioning and repeatability. They were specifically developed for make use of with state-of-the-art servo motor technology, providing tight integration of the motor to the unit. Design features include mounting any servo motors (IEC, NEMA, or personalized motors), regular low backlash, high torsional stiffness, 95 to 97% efficiency and noiseless running.
Fewer elements also offer small packaging compared to bolt-on reducers. Bolt-on gear-heads often use right-angle gears to reduce the length a reducer extends beyond a machine. Right-angle gears, however, require yet another set of bevel gears to make the convert. These gears increase the solution’s size, cost, complexity, and total backlash since another system is placed between your load and the electric motor. Use of beveled gears defeats the planetary gearbox for servo motor benefit of a planetary gearhead completely.
