Observing a few guidelines for proper set up is important to your trustworthy and good operation from the gearbox or gear motor.
The guidelines set out here are intended as a preliminary manual to picking gearbox or gear motor. For helpful and suitable set up, observe the guidelines given inside the installation, utilize the maintenances guide for that gearbox obtainable from our sales division.
Following is usually a short outline of set up rules:
a) Fastening:
Place gearbox on a surface delivering satisfactory rigidity. Mating surfaces must be machined and flat.
Mating surfaces have to be inside definite geometric tolerances (see manual). This really is particularly genuine of flange-mounted gearboxes with splined hollow shafts.
In applications that involve higher radial loads at the output end, flange mounting is advisable for some gearbox sizes as this mounting helps make use of the double pilot diameters presented in these gearboxes.
Ensure the gearbox is suitable to the essential mounting position.
Use screws of resistance class eight.eight and more than to safe the gearbox. Torque up screws to your figures
indicated while in the pertinent tables.
With transmitted output torque higher than or equal 70% of the indicated M2max torque, and with
regular movement reversals, use screws with minimum resistance ten.9.
Some gearbox sizes may be fastened employing either screws or pins. Of pin seated inside the frame the gearboxes be not less than one.five occasions pin diameter.
b) Connections
Safe the connection elements to gearbox input and output. Don’t tap them with hammers or related tools.
To insert these parts, use the services screws and threaded holes supplied to the shafts. Be sure to clean off any grease or protects from the shafts prior to fitting any connection components.
Fitting hydraulic motors.
Be careful the O ring concerning motor flange and gearbox input flange when assembling. Install the
hydraulic motor ahead of filling lube oil into the gearbox.
Connecting the hydraulic brake.
The hydraulic circuit needs to be such to ensure that brake is launched instants in advance of gearbox commences and utilized just after gearbox has stopped. Check out that stress while in the hydraulic line for brake release is at zero anytime gearbox is stopped.
Path of rotation
Motors are connected on the ideal electrical or hydraulic circuit in line with their direction of rotation.
When executing these connections, bear in mind that all gearboxes, whether from the in-line or suitable angle design, possess the very same direction of rotation both at input and output.
