servo gearhead

Servo gearheads provide mechanical advantage by multiplying engine torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back again to the motor.

We offers the widest selection of gear technology providing optimal solutions much beyond the capabilities of other gearhead suppliers.
Are you aware why we still make use of today gearboxes while servo motors becoming more powerful and more advanced? The gearboxes are used in many cases in combination with a servo motor, for example because they possess low backlash and so are able to cope with high torque. But still we didn’t give a remedy to the previous question: why! In this article we discuss the procedure of a servo drive and translate this through to the gearboxes.
Technically translated tis means to follow or execute a command. A servo motor follows the (complex) task given to him.

For industrial applications, servo motors are used where a drive-system needs to be accurate or highly dynamic. The feedback to the engine is performed through a resolver (analogue sensor of rotation) or encoder (digital sensor of rotation). A servo electric motor is controlled by a servo amplifier, possibly with a shaft controller.

The rotation frequency of the actuator is given back by the resolver or encoder. That is capable in addition to the rotational velocity, also to look for the position of the rotor and the path of rotation. The servo amplifier compares the arranged rotational frequency with the measured rotational frequency. Today the servo amplifier can drive the actuator to the desired values.
Interesting, AC Servo Motors haven’t any significant disadvantages more! Therefore, why would you utilize a gearbox?
This has the following reasons:

If you want a suprisingly low quickness, possibly in combination with an increased torque.
If you want high torque. (Actuators with high torque are available, but they are exponentially more expensive compared to the smaller servomotors)
Inertia matching, in order to prevent that the load determines the behaviour of the motor.
To be able to absorb the high radial or axial forces of the application.
If you want to go “around the corner” otherwise the servomotor sticks out the application. Gearboxes are available in right-angled servo gearhead versions.
Baldor’s GBSM-series of low backlash, servo motor rated gearheads, install easily and directly onto AC brushless servo motors to provide industrial motion control apparatus with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are created for servo applications needing precision, durability, and long trouble-free operation.
