Observing a number of rules for right set up is crucial for the dependable and appropriate operation of your gearbox or gear motor.
The principles set out listed here are meant being a preliminary guidebook to choosing gearbox or gear motor. For powerful and proper installation, follow the directions offered from the installation, use the maintenances manual to the gearbox obtainable from our sales department.
Following is often a brief outline of installation rules:
a) Fastening:
Place gearbox on the surface giving ample rigidity. Mating surfaces need to be machined and flat.
Mating surfaces needs to be inside of definite geometric tolerances (see guide). This is certainly particularly correct of flange-mounted gearboxes with splined hollow shafts.
In applications that involve large radial loads with the output finish, flange mounting is proposed for some gearbox sizes as this mounting can make use of the double pilot diameters offered in these gearboxes.
Ensure the gearbox is suitable for that expected mounting position.
Use screws of resistance class eight.eight and over to secure the gearbox. Torque up screws on the figures
indicated during the pertinent tables.
With transmitted output torque higher than or equal 70% of your indicated M2max torque, and with
frequent movement reversals, use screws with minimal resistance ten.9.
Some gearbox sizes is usually fastened employing both screws or pins. Of pin seated within the frame the gearboxes be no less than one.five times pin diameter.
b) Connections
Secure the connection components to gearbox input and output. Never tap them with hammers or equivalent tools.
To insert these parts, make use of the support screws and threaded holes provided within the shafts. Make sure to clean off any grease or protects in the shafts in advance of fitting any connection elements.
Fitting hydraulic motors.
Be careful the O ring among motor flange and gearbox input flange when assembling. Set up the
hydraulic motor prior to filling lube oil in to the gearbox.
Connecting the hydraulic brake.
The hydraulic circuit must be such to ensure that brake is released instants prior to gearbox starts and applied immediately after gearbox has stopped. Test that pressure while in the hydraulic line for brake release is at zero when gearbox is stopped.
Course of rotation
Motors are connected towards the suitable electric or hydraulic circuit in accordance with their course of rotation.
When executing these connections, bear in mind that all gearboxes, whether in the in-line or appropriate angle design, have the identical path of rotation both at input and output. For much more information with the connection of electric and hydraulic motors, see related sections on this catalogue.
