Regular applications for these reducers include precision rotary axis drives, traveling gantries & columns, material handling axis drives and electronic line shafting. Industries served include Material Handling, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
The servo gearboxes PT complete the complete selection of our servo gearboxes that consist of high-end planetary gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, hypoid gearboxes, cycloid gearboxes along with various combinations thereof. All common servo motors could be very easily set up with all sizes of our gearboxes. Our PT servo planetary gearboxes assure high stiffness and dependable transmission through their unique design. All ring gears, planet gears and sunlight planetary gearbox for servo motor pinions are case – hardened and ground. This provides a superb transmission quality and permits precise positioning tasks.
They are available in nine sizes with reduction ratios from 3:1 to 600:1 and result torque capacities up to 16,227 lb.ft. The output could be provided with a solid shaft or ISO 9409-1 flange, for mounting to rotary or indexing tables, pinion gears, pulleys or other drive components with no need for a coupling. For high precision applications, backlash amounts right down to 1 arc-minute can be found. Right-angle and insight shaft versions of these reducers are also available.
Some planetary-geared servo-motors offer additional options. For example, oil-flow lubrication and cooling lets units operate consistently at up to three times the nominal torque and power ranking. Oil-cooling also will keep the actuator cool in high-temperature environments. Various other options include explosionproof styles, alternative materials and coatings, customized shafts, nonstandard electric motor voltages such as 24 or 48 Vdc, special feedback products, and special electric connectors to operate with most amplifiers.
This standard selection of Precision Planetary Reducers are ideal for use in applications that demand high performance, precise positioning and repeatability. These were specifically developed for make use of with state-of-the-art servo motor technology, providing restricted integration of the motor to the unit. Style features include installation any servo motors (IEC, NEMA, or customized motors), regular low backlash, high torsional stiffness, 95 to 97% efficiency and quiet running.
Fewer parts also offer compact packaging compared to bolt-on reducers. Bolt-on gear-heads regularly use right-position gears to reduce the distance a reducer extends beyond a machine. Right-position gears, however, require yet another set of bevel gears to make the change. These gears increase the solution’s size, price, complexity, and total backlash since another system is placed between the load and the electric motor. Usage of beveled gears defeats the advantage of a planetary gearhead entirely.
