The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine high performance with economic efficiency: both lines are also equipped with helical ground gears, ensuring a minimum noise level and smooth running. The full 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 material. This increases silent operating characteristics while at the same time improving positioning accuracy and reducing backlash. Yet another shaft sealing band ensures maximum dust 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 over the gear will be a tighter, more specific suit. And the tighter match means less play in the gear teeth, which is the cause of backlash to begin with. Of course, precision gears are more expensive, but if the application demands high accuracy, after that precision gearing may be the way to go.
From a gear design perspective, a simple way to lessen backlash is to ensure one’s teeth mesh tightly together. This is typically completed by shortening the guts distance between gears. For pre-loading, this could be done using a spring mechanism to hold the gears firmly set up. This also eliminates the enjoy between the gear teeth and therefore eliminates backlash.
Of course, the kind of gears used can also have a huge impact on the quantity of backlash. So for example, some equipment types such as stress wave gears, or harmonic equipment 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 ideals, the input stage can be dimensionally smaller compared to the output stage. Its short style makes the GSD series the perfect high-end gearbox for space limited applications. The low standard backlash of the GSD line makes it an ideal fit for highly powerful applications where highest positioning and rate accuracy is necessary. The flange result produces highest torsional rigidity. For the lodging of especially high axial loads, taper roller bearings are elective in sizes with 90 mm diameter or more. The GSB line means high performance in mixture 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 collection offer the same advantages as the GSB collection; the right angle shape makes the GSBL range an ideal match for all powerful applications where space is bound.
