Typical applications for these reducers include precision rotary axis drives, traveling gantries & columns, material handling axis drives and electronic line shafting. Industries served include Material Managing, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
The servo gearboxes PT complete the complete selection of our servo gearboxes that contain high-end planetary gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, hypoid gearboxes, cycloid gearboxes as well as various combinations thereof. All common servo motors could be easily installed with all sizes of our gearboxes. Our PT servo planetary gearboxes guarantee high stiffness and reliable transmission through their particular design. All ring gears, world gears and sun pinions are case – hardened and ground. This provides an outstanding transmission quality and allows for 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 could be provided with a solid shaft or ISO 9409-1 flange, for installation to rotary or indexing tables, pinion gears, pulleys or other drive elements without the need for a coupling. For high precision applications, backlash levels right down to 1 arc-minute can be found. Right-angle and insight shaft versions of the reducers are also available.
Some planetary-geared servo-motors offer additional options. For instance, oil-stream lubrication and planetary gearbox for servo motor cooling lets products operate consistently at up to three times the nominal torque and power rating. Oil-cooling also continues the actuator great in high-temperature environments. Additional options include explosionproof styles, alternative components and coatings, custom shafts, nonstandard electric motor voltages such as 24 or 48 Vdc, special feedback products, and special electric connectors to use with most amplifiers.
This standard selection of Precision Planetary Reducers are perfect for use in applications that demand high performance, precise positioning and repeatability. They were specifically developed for use with state-of-the-art servo motor technology, providing tight integration of the engine to the unit. Style features include installation any servo motors (IEC, NEMA, or personalized motors), standard low backlash, high torsional stiffness, 95 to 97% efficiency and silent running.
Fewer parts also offer compact packaging in comparison 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 group of bevel gears to help make the change. These gears boost the solution’s size, cost, complexity, and total backlash since another mechanism is placed between your load and the electric motor. Usage of beveled gears defeats the advantage of a planetary gearhead altogether.
