The high-end economy lines GSN & GFE combine high performance with financial efficiency: both lines are also equipped with helical ground gears, ensuring a minimum noise level and smooth running. The entire needle bearing has been especially designed to reach high torques that defeat the competition for devices of the same size. All planetary carriers are produced as a cage created from solid materials. This increases noiseless operating characteristics while at exactly the same time improving positioning accuracy and reducing backlash. An additional shaft sealing band ensures maximum dust and splash water protection relative to protection course IP65 in every lines.
One way to reduce backlash is by using precision gears. The focus on manufacturing in precision gears is certainly tighter tolerances, so all around the gear is a tighter, more specific match. And the tighter match means much less play in the gear teeth, which is the trigger of backlash in the first place. Of course, precision gears are more costly, but if the application calls for high accuracy, after that precision gearing may be the way to go.
From a equipment design perspective, an easy way to reduce backlash is to ensure the teeth mesh tightly together. That is typically completed by shortening the guts distance between gears. For pre-loading, this can be done utilizing a spring mechanism to hold the gears firmly set up. This also eliminates the enjoy between the gear teeth and thus eliminates backlash.
Of course, the kind of gears used can also have a huge impact on the amount of backlash. So for example, some gear types such as strain wave gears, or harmonic gear drives, possess zero backlash.
The GSD, GSB & GSBL high-end gearbox lines are constructed in a space-optimized, two-stage design. Because of the lower torque ideals, the input stage is usually dimensionally smaller compared to the result stage. Its short style makes the GSD series the perfect high-end gearbox for space limited applications. The low standard backlash of the GSD range makes it the perfect fit for highly dynamic applications where highest positioning and swiftness accuracy is necessary. The flange output creates highest torsional rigidity. For the lodging of particularly high axial loads, taper roller bearings are optionally available in sizes with 90 mm diameter or more. The GSB line means high performance in combination with low backlash and high precision. Its robust, one-piece housing allows for a higher gearbox rigidity and the absorption of high radial and axial loads. The angular gearboxes of the GSBL line offer the same advantages as the GSB series; the right angle shape makes the GSBL series the perfect match for all powerful applications where space is limited.
