How to choose the Right Gearhead

Provide more Torque at Lower RPMs The appropriate use of gearing in your motion control application can make it run at lower rpms and provide more torque. Should you decide to use a gearhead, available configurations include an in-line or a right-angle gearhead. You must and also decide whether you want a motor with an integrated gearhead. The assembly includes both the gearhead and motor in a single housing. […]

Gearing in Motion-Control Designs

What are the Advantages of Using a Gearhead? Estimates say that only about one-third of the motion control systems in service use gearing, although there are good reasons for doing so. For example, when your motion control system must run at 1,000 rpm or less, the use of a gearhead is advantageous. It’s also wise to use gearing when designing systems that have size constraints. Pairing a gearhead with your servo motor or using an integrated gearmotor can let you employ a smaller motor, thereby reducing the system size. […]

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. […]
