The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine high performance with financial efficiency: both lines are also equipped with helical ground gears, ensuring a minimum noise level and smooth running. The entire needle bearing offers been especially designed to reach high torques that beat the competition for units of the same size. All planetary carriers are manufactured as a cage made from solid materials. This increases noiseless operating characteristics while at the same time improving positioning precision and reducing backlash. Yet another shaft sealing band ensures maximum dust and splash water protection in accordance with protection class IP65 in every lines.
One method to reduce backlash is by using precision gears. The focus on manufacturing in precision gears is tighter tolerances, so all around the gear will be a tighter, more precise match. And the tighter fit means much less play in the gear teeth, which may be the trigger of backlash in the first place. Of program, precision gears are more costly, but if the application demands high accuracy, then precision gearing could be the way to go.
From a equipment design perspective, an easy way to lessen backlash is to make sure the teeth mesh tightly together. This is typically done by shortening the guts distance between gears. As for pre-loading, this is often done utilizing a spring mechanism to hold the gears firmly set up. This also eliminates the play between the gear teeth and thus eliminates backlash.
Of course, the kind of gears used may also have a large impact on the amount of backlash. So for example, some equipment types such as strain 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. Because of the lower torque values, the input stage is dimensionally smaller than the output stage. Its short design makes the GSD line the perfect 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 acceleration accuracy is required. The flange output generates highest torsional rigidity. For the lodging of particularly high axial loads, taper roller bearings are optionally available 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 permits a higher gearbox rigidity and the absorption of high radial and axial loads. The angular gearboxes of the GSBL range provide same advantages as the GSB collection; the right angle form makes the GSBL collection an ideal match for all dynamic applications where space is limited.
