Servo gearheads provide mechanical advantage by multiplying motor torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back again to the motor.
We supplies the widest selection of gear systems providing optimal solutions much beyond the capabilities of other gearhead suppliers.
Do you know why we still use today gearboxes while servo motors becoming more powerful and more advanced? The gearboxes are found in many cases in mixture with a servo motor, for example because they have low backlash and are able to cope with high torque. But still we didn’t give an answer to the previous query: why! In this article we discuss the procedure of a servo drive and translate this through to the gearboxes.
Technically translated tis means to follow or execute a command. A servo engine follows the (complex) job given to him.
For industrial applications, servo motors are used where a drive-system has to be accurate or highly powerful. The opinions to the electric motor is performed through a servo motor and gearbox resolver (analogue sensor of rotation) or encoder (digital sensor of rotation). A servo electric motor is controlled by a servo amplifier, probably 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 velocity, also to determine the placement of the rotor and the path of rotation. The servo amplifier compares the established rotational frequency with the measured rotational frequency. Now the servo amplifier can drive the actuator to the desired values.
Interesting, AC Servo Motors have no significant disadvantages more! Therefore, why would you utilize a gearbox?
This has the following reasons:
If you prefer a very low speed, possibly in mixture with a higher torque.
If you need high torque. (Actuators with high torque can be found, but they are exponentially more costly compared to the smaller servomotors)
Inertia matching, in order to prevent that the strain 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 “nearby” otherwise the servomotor sticks out the application. Gearboxes can be found in right-angled versions.
Baldor’s GBSM-series of low backlash, servo motor rated gearheads, install easily and directly onto AC brushless servo motors to supply industrial motion control equipment with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are created for servo applications needing precision, durability, and long trouble-free operation.
