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 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 material. This increases quiet operating characteristics while at the same time improving positioning precision and reducing backlash. Yet another shaft sealing ring ensures maximum dust and splash water protection relative to protection class IP65 in all lines.
One way 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 fit means much less play in the gear teeth, which may be the cause of backlash to begin with. Of course, precision gears are more expensive, but if the application calls for high accuracy, then precision gearing could 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 carried out 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 may also have a huge impact on the amount 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. Due to the lower torque values, the input stage can be dimensionally smaller than the output stage. Its short style makes the GSD collection the ideal high-end gearbox for space limited applications. The low regular backlash of the GSD collection makes it an ideal fit for highly dynamic applications where highest positioning and speed 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 higher. The GSB line stands for high performance in mixture 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 collection provide same advantages as the GSB collection; the right angle form makes the GSBL range an ideal match for all powerful applications where space is bound.
