Observing several principles for accurate set up is vital towards the trustworthy and appropriate operation of the gearbox or gear motor.
The principles set out listed below are intended like a preliminary guidebook to selecting gearbox or gear motor. For efficient and right set up, comply with the directions provided inside the installation, utilize the maintenances guide for that gearbox offered from our product sales department.
Following is often a quick outline of set up rules:
a) Fastening:
Place gearbox on the surface giving sufficient rigidity. Mating surfaces ought to be machined and flat.
Mating surfaces should be inside definite geometric tolerances (see guide). This is specifically accurate of flange-mounted gearboxes with splined hollow shafts.
In applications that involve higher radial loads with the output finish, flange mounting is suggested for some gearbox sizes as this mounting tends to make utilization of the double pilot diameters supplied in these gearboxes.
Ensure the gearbox is appropriate for your required mounting position.
Use screws of resistance class 8.8 and more than to safe the gearbox. Torque up screws to your figures
indicated during the pertinent tables.
With transmitted output torque better than or equal 70% with the indicated M2max torque, and with
frequent movement reversals, use screws with minimum resistance 10.9.
Some gearbox sizes might be fastened applying both screws or pins. Of pin seated inside the frame the gearboxes be at least 1.5 times pin diameter.
b) Connections
Secure the connection components to gearbox input and output. Usually do not tap them with hammers or similar tools.
To insert these elements, utilize the service screws and threaded holes supplied to the shafts. Make sure to clean off any grease or protects from your shafts prior to fitting any connection elements.
Fitting hydraulic motors.
Be careful the O ring amongst motor flange and gearbox input flange when assembling. Install the
hydraulic motor prior to filling lube oil into the gearbox.
Connecting the hydraulic brake.
The hydraulic circuit needs to be such to make certain that brake is released instants just before gearbox begins and utilized immediately after gearbox has stopped. Check that stress inside the hydraulic line for brake release is at zero every time gearbox is stopped.
Route of rotation
Motors are connected to the appropriate electrical or hydraulic circuit based on their path of rotation.
When doing these connections, keep in mind that all gearboxes, no matter if inside the in-line or correct angle style, have the exact same direction of rotation both at input and output.
