Usual applications for these reducers include precision rotary axis drives, traveling gantries & columns, material handling axis drives and digital line shafting. Industries offered include Material Handling, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
The servo gearboxes PT complete the complete range 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 can be easily installed with all sizes of our gearboxes. Our PT servo planetary gearboxes guarantee high stiffness and reliable transmission through their unique design. All band gears, planet gears and sunlight pinions are case – hardened and ground. This gives a superb transmission quality and permits precise positioning tasks.
They are available in nine sizes with reduction ratios from 3:1 to 600:1 and output torque capacities up to 16,227 lb.ft. The output can be provided with a solid shaft or ISO 9409-1 flange, for mounting to rotary or indexing tables, pinion gears, pulleys or other drive components with no need for a coupling. For high precision applications, backlash amounts down to 1 arc-minute can be found. Right-angle and insight shaft versions of these reducers are also obtainable.
Some planetary-geared servo-motors offer additional options. For example, oil-movement lubrication and cooling lets units operate continually at up to 3 x the nominal torque and power ranking. Oil-cooling also maintains the actuator awesome in high-temperature environments. Various other options include servo worm reducer explosionproof styles, alternative materials and coatings, customized shafts, nonstandard motor voltages such as 24 or 48 Vdc, special feedback gadgets, and special electrical connectors to use with most amplifiers.
This standard selection of Precision Planetary Reducers are ideal for use in applications that demand high performance, precise positioning and repeatability. These were specifically developed for make use of with state-of-the-art servo electric motor technology, providing tight integration of the electric motor to the unit. Design features include installation any servo motors (IEC, NEMA, or customized motors), standard low backlash, high torsional stiffness, 95 to 97% efficiency and quiet running.
Fewer parts also offer compact packaging in comparison to bolt-on reducers. Bolt-on gear-heads frequently use right-angle gears to reduce the distance a reducer extends beyond a machine. Right-angle gears, however, require an additional set of bevel gears to help make the turn. These gears boost the solution’s size, price, complexity, and total backlash since another mechanism is placed between the load and the engine. Use of beveled gears defeats the benefit of a planetary gearhead altogether.
