For applications where variable speeds are essential, typically an AC motor with an Inverter or brush motors are used. Brushless DC motors are a sophisticated option because of their wide rate range, low warmth and maintenance-free procedure. Stepper Motors provide high torque and soft low speed operation.
Speed is typically managed by manual operation on the driver or by an external change, or with an exterior 0~10 VDC. Swiftness control systems typically make use of gearheads to increase result torque. Gear types range between spur, worm or helical / hypoid depending on torque demands and budgets.
Mounting configurations differ to depending on space constraints or design of the application.
The drives are high performance and durable and show a Center-drive gear motor 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 accomplished through the consistent application of light weight aluminum die casting technology, which ensures a high amount of rigidity for the gear and motor housing concurrently.
Each drive is produced and tested particularly for every order and customer. A advanced modular system permits an excellent diversity of types and a maximum degree of customization to consumer requirements.
In both rotation directions, defined end positions are guarded by two position limit switches. This uncomplicated option does not only simplify the cabling, but also can help you configure the end positions efficiently. The high shut-off accuracy of the limit switches ensures safe operation shifting forwards and backwards.
A gearmotor provides high torque at low horsepower or low speed. The speed specs for these motors are normal speed and stall-swiftness torque. These motors use gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to reduce speed, which makes more torque available. Gearmotors ‘re normally utilized in applications that need a lot of force to move heavy objects.
By and large, most industrial gearmotors use ac motors, typically fixed-speed motors. However, dc motors may also be used as gearmotors … a lot of which are found in automotive applications.
Gearmotors have several advantages over other types of motor/equipment combinations. Perhaps most of all, can simplify design and implementation through the elimination of the step of separately creating and integrating the motors with the gears, hence reducing engineering costs.
Another benefit of gearmotors is usually that having the right combination of motor and gearing can prolong design life and allow for the best possible 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 along with the potential for misalignment causing bearing failure and eventually reduced useful life.
Advancements in gearmotor technology include the utilization 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, which allows for improved functionality in smaller packages. More after the jump.
Conceptually, motors and gearboxes could be mixed and matched as needed to greatest fit the application, but in the finish, the complete gearmotor is the driving factor. There are numerous of motors and gearbox types that can be mixed; 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.
