For applications where adjustable speeds are essential, typically an AC electric motor with an Inverter or brush motors are used. Brushless DC motors are an advanced option due to their wide swiftness range, low temperature and maintenance-free operation. Stepper Motors offer high torque and simple low speed operation.
Speed is typically managed by manual procedure on the driver or by an external switch, or with an external 0~10 VDC. Velocity control systems typically use gearheads to increase output torque. Gear types range from spur, worm or helical / hypoid depending on torque needs and budgets.
Mounting configurations vary to depending on space constraints or design of the application.
The drives are high performance and durable and feature a compact and lightweight design.
The compact design is manufactured possible through the combination of a spur/worm gear drive with motors optimized for performance. That is attained through the consistent application of aluminum die casting technology, which ensures a high degree of rigidity for the gear and motor housing concurrently.
Each drive is produced and tested particularly for each order and customer. A sophisticated modular system allows for a great diversity of types and a optimum amount of customization to customer requirements.
In both rotation directions, described end positions are secured by two position limit switches. This uncomplicated remedy does not only simplify the cabling, but also makes it possible to configure the finish positions quickly and easily. The high shut-off accuracy of the limit switches guarantees safe operation shifting forwards and backwards.
A gearmotor provides high torque at low horsepower or low quickness. The speed specs for these motors are regular speed and stall-quickness torque. These motors make use of gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to reduce speed, which makes more torque obtainable. Gearmotors ‘re normally utilized in applications that need a whole lot of force to move heavy objects.
By and large, most industrial gearmotors use ac motors, typically fixed-speed motors. Nevertheless, dc motors may also be utilized as gearmotors … a lot of which are used in automotive applications.
Gearmotors have numerous advantages over other types of motor/equipment Center-drive gear motor combinations. Perhaps most of all, can simplify style and implementation through the elimination of the stage of separately designing and integrating the motors with the gears, hence reducing engineering costs.
Another advantage of gearmotors is certainly that having the right combination of motor and gearing may prolong design life and invite for the best power management and use.
Such problems are common when a separate electric motor and gear reducer are connected together and lead to more engineering time and cost and also the potential for misalignment leading to bearing failure and ultimately reduced useful life.
Developments in gearmotor technology include the use of new specialty materials, coatings and bearings, and in addition improved gear tooth styles that are optimized for sound reduction, increase in power and improved life, all of which allows for improved overall performance in smaller deals. More following the jump.
Conceptually, motors and gearboxes can be blended and matched as needed to greatest fit the application, but in the finish, the complete gearmotor may be the driving factor. There are numerous of motors and gearbox types which can be combined; for example, the right position wormgear, planetary and parallel shaft gearbox can be combined with long lasting magnet dc, ac induction, or brushless dc motors.
