Gam SPH Gearhead Family

Gam SPH Gearhead Family

Greenville, DE — Backlash and Torsional Rigidity are both important values to consider when selecting a high precision gearbox as they both affect lost motion (arcmin). GAM’s SPH Flange Gearbox has a single piece steel housing and ring gear machined directly inside for maximum stiffness. The helical gears are precision cut and ground for extremely quiet and smooth torque transmission with a standard backlash rating of < 3 arcmin or < 1 arcmin reduced.

Download the new SPH brochure to see how the SPH Flange stacks up to other flange gearboxes available on the market when it comes to lost motion.

The EVL planetary gearbox is a perfect solution for OEM equipment such as packaging, assembly automation, and any advanced conveyor systems implementing sortation or multi-speed/positioning.  The EVL series gearheads are offered in a variety of frame sizes and ratios, and they can handle maximum loads approaching 600 NM.  The EVL series gearheads are available in round face (as shown) or square mounting flanges.

Shimpo EVL Series

Shimpo EVL Series

The right-angle equivalent to the VRL series, the EVL provides the customer with an excellent solution when space and clearance are a serious limitation.  For a right-angle solution, the EVL Series is an intelligent choice providing impressive precision and durability at an exceptional value.  Using a 1:1 spiral bevel gear for the right-angle connection, a 6 arc-min backlash rating can be achieved by the EVL series at 2 stage reduction ratios.  Features include:

  1. Space-saving features, motor can be located at a 90 degree position from the reducer providing a more compact footprint
  2. High rigidity and torque, capacity are achieved by using uncaged needle roller bearings
  3. Adapter-bushing connection, enable a simple, effective attachment to most servo motors
  4. No leakage through the seal, high viscosity, anti-separation grease does not liquefy and does not migrate away from the gears
  5. Maintenance-free, no need to replace the grease for the life of the unit. The reducer can be positioned in any orientation

Gearbox Design Helps to Prevent Motor Shaft Slippage April 10, 2014

Posted by Servo2Go.com in Technical Support Information.
Tags: , , , , ,
add a comment

All GAM inline gearboxes feature a radial clamping collar as the connection method to secure the motor shaft.  We’ve had many customers call us and ask for a gearbox with a keyed input because they’ve had motor slipping issues while using other manufacturers’ gearboxes.  These other gearboxes have a set screw design to connect to the motor shaft.  Depending on the type of set screw used, the set screw either presses against or penetrates the motor shaft to generate the holding force.  While there can be many factors that can contribute to the motor shaft slipping, having the holding force come from a single point isn’t an optimal design.  A better option than a set screw or keyed connection uses a radial clamping collar.

With this design, the radial clamping collar compresses the gearbox input shaft and evenly distributes the clamping force around the entire circumference of the motor shaft.  The gearbox input shaft is sliced in three locations to ensure a secure connection even if the motor shaft has a key slot with the key removed. 

Not only does the radial clamping connection generate higher clamping forces, but it won’t mar the motor shaft like a set screw connection can.  And due to the design of the radial clamping collar, the gearbox input shaft has a smaller diameter, resulting in a lower moment of inertia compared to a gearbox with a set screw input.  This radial clamping design comes standard on all GAM inline planetary gear reducers even including the low cost PE series.
