Observing a couple of principles for appropriate installation is vital to the reliable and proper operation from the gearbox or gear motor.
The principles set out listed below are meant like a preliminary guidebook to deciding on gearbox or gear motor. For effective and proper installation, follow the directions provided while in the installation, use the maintenances manual for your gearbox out there from our sales department.
Following can be a quick outline of installation principles:
a) Fastening:
Spot gearbox on a surface delivering satisfactory rigidity. Mating surfaces ought to be machined and flat.
Mating surfaces need to be within definite geometric tolerances (see guide). This is often specifically genuine of flange-mounted gearboxes with splined hollow shafts.
In applications that involve high radial loads at the output end, flange mounting is advised for some gearbox sizes as this mounting can make use of the double pilot diameters offered in these gearboxes.
Be sure the gearbox is appropriate to the required mounting position.
Use screws of resistance class eight.8 and above to secure the gearbox. Torque up screws to the figures
indicated while in the pertinent tables.
With transmitted output torque greater than or equal 70% on the indicated M2max torque, and with
regular motion reversals, use screws with minimal resistance 10.9.
Some gearbox sizes could be fastened making use of either screws or pins. Of pin seated while in the frame the gearboxes be not less than 1.5 instances pin diameter.
b) Connections
Secure the connection parts to gearbox input and output. Usually do not tap them with hammers or equivalent resources.
To insert these components, utilize the service screws and threaded holes presented to the shafts. Make sure to clean off any grease or protects in the shafts ahead of fitting any connection parts.
Fitting hydraulic motors.
Be careful the O ring involving motor flange and gearbox input flange when assembling. Set up the
hydraulic motor prior to filling lube oil in to the gearbox.
Connecting the hydraulic brake.
The hydraulic circuit should be such to make certain that brake is launched instants in advance of gearbox begins and utilized right after gearbox has stopped. Test that pressure from the hydraulic line for brake release is at zero anytime gearbox is stopped.
Path of rotation
Motors are connected on the appropriate electrical or hydraulic circuit in accordance with their route of rotation.
When doing these connections, keep in mind that all gearboxes, whether within the in-line or appropriate angle layout, possess the similar path of rotation both at input and output. For extra facts on the connection of electrical and hydraulic motors, see relevant sections in this catalogue.
