The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine high performance with economic efficiency: both lines are also built with helical ground gears, ensuring the very least noise level and smooth running. The full needle bearing has been especially designed to reach high torques that defeat the competition for devices of the same size. All planetary carriers are manufactured as a cage created from solid materials. This increases silent operating characteristics while at the same time improving positioning accuracy and reducing backlash. An additional shaft sealing ring ensures maximum dust and splash water safety in accordance with protection class IP65 in every lines.
One method to reduce backlash is to use precision gears. The concentrate on production in precision gears is usually tighter tolerances, so all over the gear will be a tighter, more specific fit. And the tighter match means less play in the gear teeth, which is the cause of backlash in the first place. Of training course, precision gears are more expensive, if the application demands high accuracy, after that precision gearing could be the way to go.
From a gear design perspective, an easy way to lessen backlash is to ensure one’s teeth mesh tightly together. This is typically performed by shortening the guts distance between gears. For pre-loading, this is often done utilizing a spring mechanism to carry the gears firmly in place. This also eliminates the enjoy between the gear teeth and thus eliminates backlash.
Of course, the type of gears used can also have a large impact on the amount of backlash. So for instance, some gear types such as stress 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. Because of the lower torque values, the input stage is certainly dimensionally smaller compared to the result stage. Its short design makes the GSD range the perfect high-end gearbox for space restricted applications. The low regular backlash of the GSD series makes it the perfect fit for highly dynamic applications where highest positioning and velocity 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 permits a high gearbox rigidity and the absorption of high radial and axial loads. The angular gearboxes of the GSBL collection offer the same advantages as the GSB range; the right angle form makes the GSBL line the perfect match for all powerful applications where space is limited.
The possibilities are countless with zero backlash planetary gearbox!
