Pairing Gearheads with Servo Motors

Pairing Gearheads with Servo Motors Machine designers are increasingly turning to gearheads to take advantage of the latest advances in servo motor technology. Essentially, a gearhead converts high-speed, low-torque energy into low-speed, high-torque output. A servo motor provides highly accurate positioning of its output shaft. When these two devices are paired with one another, they enhance each other’s strengths, providing controlled motion that is precise, robust, and reliable. As servo technology has evolved—with manufacturers producing smaller, yet more powerful motors —gearheads are becoming increasingly essential partners in motion control. Finding the optimal pairing must take into account many engineering considerations. Before addressing those, a short review of gearhead basics. […]

What is Robotic Machine Tending?

  How Does Automated Machine Tending Work? Most machine tending is currently done by humans. Machine shops are using their human workforce to load and unload machines and to restart the program once the finished part is out of the way. The tasks are often repetitive and  qualified workers are becoming harder and harder to find, companies are introducing robots into their workshops to make up for the lack of employees. […]
