The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine powerful 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 defeat the competition for systems of the same size. All planetary carriers are manufactured as a cage made from solid materials. This increases quiet operating characteristics while at the same time improving positioning accuracy and reducing backlash. An additional shaft sealing band ensures maximum dirt and splash water protection relative to protection class IP65 in all lines.
One method to reduce backlash is by using precision gears. The focus on manufacturing in precision gears is tighter tolerances, so all around the gear is a tighter, more specific match. And the tighter fit means less play in the gear teeth, which is the cause of backlash to begin with. Of training course, precision gears are more expensive, if the application demands high accuracy, after that precision gearing may be the way to go.
From a gear design perspective, an easy way to reduce backlash is to ensure one’s teeth mesh tightly together. That is typically carried out by shortening the center distance between gears. As for pre-loading, this is often done using a spring mechanism to hold the gears firmly in place. This also eliminates the perform between the gear teeth and thus eliminates backlash.
Of course, the kind of gears used may also have a large impact on the quantity of backlash. So for example, some gear types such as stress 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. Because of the lower torque ideals, the input stage is certainly dimensionally smaller than the output stage. Its short style makes the GSD range the perfect high-end gearbox for space restricted applications. The low standard backlash of the GSD range makes it an ideal fit for highly dynamic applications where highest positioning and rate accuracy is necessary. The flange output creates highest torsional rigidity. For the accommodation of particularly high axial loads, taper roller bearings are optionally available in sizes with 90 mm diameter or higher. The GSB line stands for high performance in combination 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 range offer the same advantages as the GSB line; the right angle form makes the GSBL collection the perfect match for all dynamic applications where space is bound.
