For applications where adjustable speeds are essential, typically an AC motor with an Inverter or brush motors are used. Brushless DC motors are an advanced option due to their wide quickness range, low temperature and maintenance-free procedure. Stepper Motors offer high torque and soft low speed operation.
Speed is typically managed by manual procedure on the driver or by an exterior change, or with an exterior 0~10 VDC. Velocity control systems typically utilize gearheads to increase result torque. Gear types range between spur, worm or helical / hypoid depending on torque needs and budgets.
Mounting configurations vary to based on space constraints or design of the application.
The drives are powerful and durable and feature a concise and lightweight design.
The compact design is manufactured possible through the mixture of a spur/worm gear drive with motors optimized for performance. This is attained through the consistent application of light weight aluminum die casting technology, which guarantees a high degree of rigidity for the gear and motor housing simultaneously.
Each drive is produced and tested particularly for every 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, defined end positions are secured by two position limit switches. This uncomplicated alternative does not only simplify the cabling, but also makes it possible to configure the end positions efficiently. The high shut-off precision of the limit switches ensures safe operation shifting forwards and backwards.
A gearmotor provides high torque at low horsepower or low acceleration. The speed specs for these motors are regular speed and stall-velocity torque. These motors make use of gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to lessen speed, making more torque offered. Gearmotors ‘re normally utilized in applications that need a whole lot of force to move heavy objects.
More often than not, most industrial gearmotors make use of ac motors, typically fixed-speed motors. However, dc motors may also be utilized as gearmotors … a whole lot of which are used in automotive applications.
Gearmotors have several advantages over other styles of motor/equipment combinations. Perhaps most importantly, can simplify style and implementation through the elimination of the stage of separately developing and integrating the motors with the gears, thus reducing engineering costs.
Another benefit of gearmotors is definitely that having the right combination of engine and gearing can prolong design life and allow for ideal power management and use.
Such problems are normal when a separate electric motor and gear reducer are linked together and result in more engineering time and cost and also the potential for misalignment causing bearing failure and eventually reduced useful life.
Advances in gearmotor technology include the usage of new specialty materials, coatings and bearings, and also improved gear tooth styles that are optimized for sound reduction, increase in strength and improved life, all of which allows for improved overall performance in smaller deals. More following the jump.
Conceptually, motors and gearboxes can be mixed and matched as had a need to greatest fit the application, but in the end, the complete gearmotor is the driving factor. There are many of motors and gearbox types which can be mixed; for example, the right position Center-drive gear motor wormgear, planetary and parallel shaft gearbox could be combined with long lasting magnet dc, ac induction, or brushless dc motors.
