The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine powerful with economic efficiency: both lines are also equipped with helical ground gears, ensuring a minimum noise level and smooth running. The entire needle bearing offers been especially made to reach high torques that beat the competition for systems of the same size. All planetary carriers are produced as a cage made from solid material. This increases silent operating characteristics while at the same time improving positioning precision and reducing backlash. Yet another shaft sealing band ensures maximum dirt and splash water safety in accordance with protection course IP65 in all lines.
One method to reduce backlash is to use precision gears. The concentrate on production in precision gears is certainly tighter tolerances, so all over the gear will be a tighter, more specific fit. And the tighter fit means much less play in the apparatus teeth, which is the trigger of backlash to begin with. Of course, precision gears are more expensive, if the application demands high accuracy, after that precision gearing may be the way to go.
From a equipment design perspective, an easy way to lessen backlash is to ensure the teeth mesh tightly together. That is typically completed by shortening the guts distance between gears. As for pre-loading, this could be done utilizing a spring mechanism to carry the gears firmly in place. This also eliminates the play between the gear teeth and therefore eliminates backlash.
Of course, the type of gears used can also have a large impact on the quantity of backlash. So for example, some equipment types such as strain wave gears, or harmonic gear drives, possess zero backlash.
The GSD, GSB & GSBL high-end gearbox lines are constructed in a space-optimized, two-stage design. Due to the lower torque values, the input stage is dimensionally smaller than the result stage. Its short style makes the GSD series the ideal high-end gearbox for space limited applications. The low regular backlash of the GSD line makes it the perfect fit for highly dynamic applications where highest positioning and quickness accuracy is required. The flange result generates highest torsional rigidity. For the accommodation of especially high axial loads, taper roller bearings are optionally available in sizes with 90 mm diameter or higher. The GSB line means high performance in combination with low backlash and high precision. Its robust, one-piece housing allows for a higher gearbox rigidity and the absorption of high radial and axial loads. The angular gearboxes of the GSBL series offer the same advantages as the GSB series; the right angle form makes the GSBL line an ideal match for all powerful applications where space is limited.
