Standard applications for these reducers include precision rotary axis drives, traveling gantries & columns, materials handling axis drives and digital line shafting. Industries offered include Material Managing, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
The servo gearboxes PT complete the complete range 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 quickly installed with all sizes of our gearboxes. Our PT servo planetary gearboxes assure high stiffness and reliable transmission through their particular design. All ring gears, world gears and sunlight pinions are case – hardened and ground. This provides an outstanding transmission quality and allows for precise positioning tasks.
They are available in nine sizes with reduction ratios from 3:1 to 600:1 and output torque capacities up to 16,227 lb.ft. The output can be provided with a solid shaft or ISO 9409-1 flange, for installation to rotary or indexing tables, pinion gears, pulleys or other drive components with no need for a coupling. For high precision applications, backlash levels down to 1 arc-minute are available. Right-angle and insight shaft versions of the reducers are also available.
Some planetary-geared servo-motors offer additional options. For instance, oil-stream lubrication and cooling lets models operate continually at up to 3 x the nominal torque and power planetary gearbox for servo motor rating. Oil-cooling also continues the actuator awesome in high-temperature environments. Additional options include explosionproof designs, alternative components and coatings, customized shafts, nonstandard electric motor voltages such as 24 or 48 Vdc, special feedback gadgets, and special electrical connectors to use with most amplifiers.
This standard range of Precision Planetary Reducers are perfect 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 electric motor technology, providing limited integration of the engine to the unit. Style features include installation any servo motors (IEC, NEMA, or personalized motors), standard low backlash, high torsional stiffness, 95 to 97% efficiency and calm running.
Fewer elements also offer compact packaging in comparison to bolt-on reducers. Bolt-on gear-heads frequently use right-angle gears to reduce the space 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, cost, complexity, and total backlash since another system is placed between the load and the engine. Use of beveled gears defeats the benefit of a planetary gearhead entirely.
