The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine high performance with financial efficiency: both lines are also equipped with helical ground gears, ensuring the very least noise level and smooth running. The full needle bearing offers been especially made to reach high torques that beat 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. Yet another shaft sealing band ensures maximum dust and splash water safety relative to protection class IP65 in every lines.
One way to reduce backlash is to use precision gears. The focus on production in precision gears is certainly tighter tolerances, so all over the gear will be a tighter, more precise fit. And the tighter fit means much less play in the apparatus teeth, which may be the trigger of backlash to begin with. Of program, precision gears are more costly, if the application calls for high accuracy, then precision gearing may be the way to go.
From a equipment design perspective, a simple way to lessen backlash is to ensure the teeth mesh tightly together. That is typically carried out by shortening the center distance between gears. For pre-loading, this could be done using a spring mechanism to carry the gears firmly set up. This also eliminates the play between your gear teeth and therefore eliminates backlash.
Of course, the kind of gears used can also have a large impact on the quantity of backlash. So for instance, 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. Due to the lower torque values, the input stage is dimensionally smaller than the result stage. Its short design makes the GSD line the ideal high-end gearbox for space restricted applications. The low regular backlash of the GSD range makes it the perfect fit for highly dynamic applications where highest positioning and quickness accuracy is required. The flange output generates highest torsional rigidity. For the accommodation 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 permits 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 bound.
