The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine high performance with economic efficiency: both lines are also built with helical ground gears, ensuring a minimum noise level and smooth running. The entire needle bearing provides been especially made to reach high torques that defeat the competition for systems of the same size. All planetary carriers are manufactured as a cage created from solid materials. This increases noiseless operating characteristics while at the same time improving positioning precision and reducing backlash. An additional shaft sealing band ensures maximum dust and splash water safety relative to protection course IP65 in every lines.
One way to reduce backlash is to use precision gears. The focus on manufacturing in precision gears is definitely tighter tolerances, so all around the gear will be a tighter, more precise suit. And the tighter suit means much less play in the gear teeth, which is the cause of backlash in the first place. Of training course, precision gears are more expensive, if the application demands high accuracy, then precision gearing may be the way to go.
From a equipment design perspective, an easy way to reduce backlash is to ensure one’s teeth mesh tightly together. This is typically carried out by shortening the center distance between gears. For pre-loading, this is often done utilizing a spring mechanism to carry the gears firmly in place. This also eliminates the play between the gear teeth and thus eliminates backlash.
Of course, the type of gears used may also have a large impact on the amount of backlash. So for instance, some equipment types such as stress wave gears, or harmonic gear drives, have zero backlash.
The GSD, GSB & GSBL high-end gearbox lines are constructed in a space-optimized, two-stage design. Due to the lower torque ideals, the input stage is certainly dimensionally smaller than the result stage. Its short style makes the GSD line the perfect high-end gearbox for space limited applications. The low regular backlash of the GSD range makes it an ideal fit for highly powerful applications where highest positioning and velocity accuracy is required. The flange output produces highest torsional rigidity. For the accommodation of particularly high axial loads, taper roller bearings are elective in sizes with 90 mm diameter or more. The GSB line means high performance in mixture with low backlash and high precision. Its robust, one-piece housing allows for a high gearbox rigidity and the absorption of high radial and axial loads. The angular gearboxes of the GSBL line provide same advantages as the GSB range; the right angle form makes the GSBL series an ideal match for all powerful applications where space is bound.
