Servo gearheads provide mechanical benefit by multiplying electric motor servo motor and gearbox torque while reducing the driven load’s reflected inertia back to the motor.

We offers the widest selection of gear technologies providing optimal solutions much beyond the capabilities of various other gearhead suppliers.
Have you any idea why we still make use of today gearboxes while servo motors becoming more powerful and more advanced? The gearboxes are found in many cases in combination with a servo motor, for instance because they have low backlash and are able to deal with high torque. But nonetheless we did not give a remedy to the previous query: why! In this post we discuss the procedure of a servo drive and translate this to the gearboxes.
Technically translated tis methods to follow or execute a command. A servo motor follows the (complex) task given to him.

For commercial applications, servo motors are used in which a drive-system has to be accurate or highly powerful. The opinions to the engine is done through a resolver (analogue sensor of rotation) or encoder (digital sensor of rotation). A servo electric motor is controlled by a servo amplifier, probably with a shaft controller.

The rotation frequency of the actuator is given back by the resolver or encoder. This is capable as well as the rotational speed, also to look for the placement of the rotor and the path of rotation. The servo amplifier compares the set rotational frequency with the measured rotational frequency. Right now the servo amplifier can drive the actuator to the desired values.
Interesting, AC Servo Motors have no significant disadvantages more! Therefore, why would you utilize a gearbox?
This has the next reasons:

If you prefer a very low acceleration, possibly in combination with a higher torque.
If you need high torque. (Actuators with high torque can be found, however they are exponentially more expensive compared to the smaller servomotors)
Inertia matching, in order to prevent that the strain determines the behaviour of the engine.
To be able to absorb the high radial or axial forces of the application form.
If you would like to go “around the corner” otherwise the servomotor shines the application. Gearboxes can be found in right-angled versions.
Baldor’s GBSM-series of low backlash, servo motor rated gearheads, attach easily and directly onto AC brushless servo motors to supply industrial motion control apparatus with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are created for servo applications needing precision, durability, and lengthy trouble-free operation.
