High Performance Servo Gearbox is ideal for Cyclic or Continuous High Speed Applications

The SPH inline planetary gearbox is GAM’s latest solution for today’s demanding motion control challenges. With helical gears, the SPH is designed for dynamic and cyclic applications and can also be optimized for high speed and continuous duty applications.

GAM SPH SERVO GEARBOX

It is available in six frame sizes with nominal torque ratings from 15 to up to 900Nm. The SPH features precision cut helical gears that are ground for smoothness, quiet operation, and high accuracies.  The face width of the SPH gears are up to 70% longer than the gears in comparable gearboxes on the market, which means more tooth contact and greater overall torque density.  To carry the higher torques, SPH gears are case hardened which imparts strength deeper into the gear compared to nitriding which hardens just the surface.  With several output configurations available, machine integration is simplified.

SPH Series Benefits

  • Helical Gearing
  • Lower backlashes
  • Lower noise levels
  • Smoother torque transmission

What are the advantages of hypoid gearing?

What are the advantages of hypoid gearing?

Conventional spiral bevel gearing, meshing in the position shown at the bottom of the drawing, has a purely rolling meshing action that is mechanically very efficient.  Its drawback is that it offers the smallest total tooth contact area, so its torque throughput capacity is lower.  Single-stage spiral bevel gearing is limited to about a 6:1 reduction ratio.   It’s easy to get higher ratios with multiple-stage configurations, but the additional gear stage lowers mechanical efficiency, increases backlash, consumes space and weight and reduces reliability.
Conventional worm gearing, meshing in the position shown at the top of the drawing, has a very high total tooth contact area.  While it offers high torque throughput and high ratio reduction, worm gearing has the lowest mechanical efficiency, due to the friction generated by its high component of sliding action.  Worm gearing is also subject to the kind of wear that demands adjustment in order to maintain accuracy.
Hypoid gearing, meshing at the intermediate position, offers mostly rolling action with a small component of sliding action.  It has a greater tooth contact area than bevel gearing, so its load-carrying capability is greater.

Introducing the New 4 mm Micromotor and Gearhead from Maxon Motor AG

maxon motor was challenged to deliver maximum power in the smallest possible space and the result is the EC 4 motor.

Maxon EC4 Brushless Micromotor

Maxon EC4 Brushless Micromotor

The 4 mm brushless DC motor is a great fit for applications in the fields of micropumps, analytic and diagnostic devices, ophthalmic surgical devices, laboratory robots, endoscopes and anywhere where size is an issue.

The general problem with micro drives is that the power output is too low for the application, due to the physical dimensions.  maxon increased the performance of this tiny motor using the latest winding technology, the most powerful magnets and optimum use of the air gap.  Integrated encoders make it possible to fully utilise the motor potential, from a standstill.  This is unique for motors of this size. maxon also incorporated a high quality gearhead to ensure optimum continuous running.  High performance ceramics are used for the gearhead carrier to make the motor capable of high input speeds and drive torques.  It is the ideal partner for the miniature ESCON 36/3 brushless motor controller.

The speed/torque gradient of the EC 4 is an impressive 50,000 rpm mNm-1 with a continuous torque of 0.4 mNm.  There are options on the windings and encoders as well as different reduction ratios on the new 4 mm planetary gearhead.

The motor is also available in two lengths.

• Short version with 0.5 W nominal power

• Long version with 1.0 W nominal power.

The 4 mm brushless DC motor is a great fit for applications in the fields of micropumps, analytic and diagnostic devices, ophthalmic surgical devices, laboratory robots, endoscopes and anywhere where size is an issue.

The EC 4 platform sets new benchmarks with regards to technical possibilities and opens up future fields of application.  Watch this space!

GAM Introduces New SPH Helical Gearbox

GAM SPH Gearbox

GAM SPH Gearbox

Mount Prospect, IL – July 10, 2012 –  GAM Gear introduces the SPH series inline planetary gearbox.  Featuring helical gearing, the SPH brings a new level of power and precision to an extensive portfolio of gear technology which includes hypoid, spiral bevel, spur, and worm.

The SPH is designed specifically for dynamic and cyclic motion control applications and can be optimized for high speed and continuous duty applications as well.  The SPH gears are cut at an ideal angle to help reduce axial forces that are traditionally associated with helical gearing and then ground for reduced noise levels and improved smoothness and accuracy.  The gear teeth are also wider which allows for larger permissible torques relative to the frame size and heavy duty taper roller bearings enable large loading capabilities.

 
GAM SPH Gearbox

“Our customers have been looking for a high precision gearbox that can help maximize their machine performance,” said Craig van den Avont, President of GAM Gear.  “Helical gearing is a necessity as these applications require a combination of high accuracies, efficiencies, speeds, and torques. The SPH delivers.”

The SPH is GAM’s latest solution for today’s demanding motion control challenges.  Available in six frame sizes and nominal torque ratings ranging from 15 to 900Nm.

Key Features:

  • Helical Gears
  • Precision cut
  • Higher torque capacity relative to the frame size
  • Smooth and quiet transmission
  • Output dimensions match those of comparable gear reducers on the market
  • Several output configurations simplifies system integration
