servo motor and gearbox

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

We offers the widest selection of gear technology providing optimal solutions far beyond the features of other gearhead suppliers.
Are you aware why we still make use of today gearboxes while servo motors becoming stronger and more advanced? The gearboxes are used in many situations in combination with a servo motor, for instance because they have low backlash and so are able to handle high torque. But nonetheless we didn’t give a remedy to the previous question: 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 electric motor follows the (complex) task given to him.

For industrial applications, servo motors are used in which a drive-system needs to be accurate or highly dynamic. The opinions to the motor is performed through a resolver (analogue sensor of rotation) or encoder (digital sensor of rotation). A servo motor is controlled by a servo amplifier, perhaps with a shaft controller.

The rotation frequency of the actuator is returned by the resolver or encoder. That is capable in addition to the rotational speed, also to look for the position of the rotor and the path of rotation. The servo amplifier compares the arranged rotational frequency with the measured rotational frequency. Now the servo amplifier can drive the actuator to the desired values.
Interesting, AC Servo Motors haven’t any significant disadvantages more! So, why would you use a gearbox?
This has the next reasons:

If you want a suprisingly low quickness, possibly in combination with an increased torque.
If you need high torque. (Actuators with high torque can be found, however they are exponentially more costly when compared to smaller servomotors)
Inertia matching, in order to prevent that the load determines the behaviour of the engine.
In order to absorb the high radial or axial forces of the application.
If you want to go “nearby” otherwise the servomotor shines the application. Gearboxes can be found in right-angled versions.
Baldor’s GBSM-series of low backlash, servo engine rated gearheads, mount easily and directly onto AC brushless servo motors to provide industrial motion control servo motor and gearbox equipment with torque multiplication and proper inertial matching. These gearheads are made for servo applications needing precision, durability, and lengthy trouble-free operation.
