The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine high performance with financial efficiency: both lines are also equipped with helical ground gears, ensuring the very least noise level and smooth running. The full needle bearing has been especially designed to reach high torques that beat the competition for models of the same size. All planetary carriers are produced as a cage created from solid material. This increases silent operating characteristics while at exactly the same time improving positioning accuracy and reducing backlash. Yet another shaft sealing band ensures maximum dust and splash water safety 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 specific suit. 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, but if the application demands high accuracy, after that precision gearing may be the way to go.
From a gear design perspective, a simple way to reduce backlash is to make sure one’s teeth mesh tightly together. This is typically carried out by shortening the center distance between gears. As for pre-loading, this could be done utilizing a spring mechanism to hold the gears firmly set up. This also eliminates the enjoy between the gear teeth and therefore eliminates backlash.
Of course, the type of gears used may also have a large impact on the amount of backlash. So for instance, some gear types such as stress wave gears, or harmonic gear drives, have 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 certainly dimensionally smaller than the result stage. Its short design makes the GSD collection the perfect high-end gearbox for space restricted applications. The low regular backlash of the GSD collection makes it the perfect fit for highly dynamic applications where highest positioning and velocity accuracy is required. The flange output creates highest torsional rigidity. For the accommodation of especially high axial loads, taper roller bearings are optionally available in sizes with 90 mm diameter or more. The GSB line stands for high performance in combination with low backlash and high precision. Its robust, one-piece housing allows for a high gearbox rigidity and the absorption of high radial and axial loads. The angular gearboxes of the GSBL range offer the same advantages as the GSB series; the right angle form makes the GSBL collection the perfect match for all powerful applications where space is limited.
