Observing a number of principles for appropriate set up is important to the trustworthy and suitable operation of your gearbox or gear motor.
The guidelines set out listed below are meant as a preliminary manual to selecting gearbox or gear motor. For effective and right set up, observe the guidelines offered during the installation, utilize the maintenances guide for your gearbox obtainable from our sales department.
Following is actually a quick outline of installation principles:
a) Fastening:
Location gearbox on the surface giving satisfactory rigidity. Mating surfaces really should be machined and flat.
Mating surfaces have to be inside of definite geometric tolerances (see guide). This really is primarily true of flange-mounted gearboxes with splined hollow shafts.
In applications that involve higher radial loads at the output end, flange mounting is encouraged for some gearbox sizes as this mounting can make use of the double pilot diameters provided in these gearboxes.
Ensure the gearbox is ideal to the required mounting position.
Use screws of resistance class 8.8 and above to safe the gearbox. Torque up screws for the figures
indicated in the appropriate tables.
With transmitted output torque better than or equal 70% of your indicated M2max torque, and with
frequent motion reversals, use screws with minimal resistance ten.9.
Some gearbox sizes could be fastened applying both screws or pins. Of pin seated during the frame the gearboxes be not less than 1.five occasions pin diameter.
b) Connections
Safe the connection components to gearbox input and output. Don’t tap them with hammers or similar equipment.
To insert these parts, use the support screws and threaded holes provided within the shafts. Be sure to clean off any grease or protects from the shafts ahead of fitting any connection components.
Fitting hydraulic motors.
Be careful the O ring among motor flange and gearbox input flange when assembling. Set up the
hydraulic motor in advance of filling lube oil in to the gearbox.
Connecting the hydraulic brake.
The hydraulic circuit need to be this kind of to be sure that brake is released instants before gearbox starts and utilized following gearbox has stopped. Check that stress in the hydraulic line for brake release is at zero every time gearbox is stopped.
Route of rotation
Motors are linked on the ideal electric or hydraulic circuit in accordance with their route of rotation.
When executing these connections, keep in mind that all gearboxes, irrespective of whether inside the in-line or suitable angle design, have the similar route of rotation each at input and output. For more particulars from the connection of electric and hydraulic motors, see related sections in this catalogue.
