The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine high performance with financial efficiency: both lines are also built with helical ground gears, ensuring the very least noise level and smooth running. The entire needle bearing has been especially made to reach high torques that beat the competition for units of the same size. All planetary carriers are manufactured as a cage created from solid material. This increases tranquil operating characteristics while at the same time improving positioning accuracy and reducing backlash. An additional shaft sealing band ensures maximum dirt and splash water security in accordance with protection course IP65 in all lines.
One method to reduce backlash is by using precision gears. The concentrate on production in precision gears can be tighter tolerances, so all over the gear will be a tighter, more specific suit. And the tighter suit means less play in the gear teeth, which may be the trigger of backlash in the first place. Of program, precision gears are more expensive, if the application demands high accuracy, then precision gearing may be the way to go.
From a gear design perspective, a simple way to lessen backlash is to ensure the teeth mesh tightly together. That is typically performed by shortening the center distance between gears. For pre-loading, this is often done using a spring mechanism to hold the gears firmly in place. This also eliminates the play between the gear teeth and thus eliminates backlash.
Of course, the kind of gears used may also have a huge impact on the quantity of backlash. So for example, some equipment types such as strain 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 dimensionally smaller than the output stage. Its short style makes the GSD collection the perfect high-end gearbox for space limited applications. The low standard backlash of the GSD series makes it the perfect fit for highly powerful applications where highest positioning and speed accuracy is necessary. The flange output produces highest torsional rigidity. For the accommodation of particularly high axial loads, taper roller bearings are optionally available in sizes with 90 mm diameter or more. The GSB line stands for high performance in mixture with low backlash and high precision. Its robust, one-piece housing permits a higher gearbox rigidity and the absorption of high radial and axial loads. The angular gearboxes of the GSBL range offer the same advantages as the GSB collection; the right angle form makes the GSBL range an ideal match for all dynamic applications where space is limited.
