The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine powerful with financial efficiency: both lines are also equipped with helical ground gears, ensuring a minimum noise level and smooth running. The entire needle bearing provides been especially designed to reach high torques that defeat the competition for units of the same size. All planetary carriers are produced as a cage made from solid materials. This increases quiet operating characteristics while at the same time improving positioning precision and reducing backlash. Yet another shaft sealing ring ensures maximum dirt and splash water protection relative to protection class IP65 in all lines.
One way to reduce backlash is to use precision gears. The concentrate on production in precision gears is tighter tolerances, so all around the gear will be a tighter, more specific match. And the tighter fit means less play in the apparatus teeth, which may be the cause of backlash in the first place. Of course, precision gears are more costly, if the application demands high accuracy, after that precision gearing could be the way to go.
From a equipment design perspective, a simple way to lessen backlash is to make sure one’s teeth mesh tightly together. That is typically performed by shortening the guts distance between gears. For pre-loading, this could be done using a spring mechanism to carry the gears firmly in place. This also eliminates the play between your gear teeth and therefore eliminates backlash.
Of course, the type of gears used may also have a huge impact on the amount of backlash. So for instance, some equipment types such as stress wave gears, or harmonic equipment drives, possess 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 is dimensionally smaller than the output stage. Its short design makes the GSD collection the ideal high-end gearbox for space restricted applications. The low regular backlash of the GSD series makes it an ideal fit for highly dynamic applications where highest positioning and rate accuracy is necessary. The flange output generates 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 mixture with low backlash and high precision. Its robust, one-piece housing permits a high gearbox rigidity and the absorption of high radial and axial loads. The angular gearboxes of the GSBL line offer the same advantages as the GSB line; the right angle shape makes the GSBL series an ideal match for all powerful applications where space is limited.
