The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine high performance with financial efficiency: both lines are also built with helical ground gears, ensuring a minimum noise level and smooth running. The entire needle bearing has been especially made to reach high torques that beat the competition for devices 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. An additional shaft sealing band ensures maximum dirt and splash water protection relative to protection class IP65 in every lines.
One method to reduce backlash is by using precision gears. The concentrate on manufacturing in precision gears can be tighter tolerances, so all around the gear is a tighter, more precise suit. And the tighter suit means less play in the gear teeth, which is the trigger of backlash to begin with. Of training course, precision gears are more costly, if the application calls for high accuracy, then precision gearing may be the way to go.
From a gear design perspective, a simple way to reduce backlash is to ensure one’s teeth mesh tightly together. That is typically completed by shortening the center distance between gears. For pre-loading, this can be done utilizing a spring mechanism to carry the gears firmly set up. This also eliminates the enjoy between your 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 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 can be dimensionally smaller than the output stage. Its short design makes the GSD collection the perfect high-end gearbox for space limited applications. The low standard backlash of the GSD collection makes it the perfect fit for highly powerful applications where highest positioning and acceleration accuracy is required. The flange output creates 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 line provide same advantages as the GSB range; the right angle form makes the GSBL collection an ideal match for all powerful applications where space is bound.
