Observing some rules for accurate installation is vital towards the reliable and correct operation in the gearbox or gear motor.
The rules set out listed here are meant as a preliminary guide to choosing gearbox or gear motor. For successful and good set up, stick to the directions given within the set up, utilize the maintenances guide for the gearbox available from our sales department.
Following is a quick outline of set up rules:
a) Fastening:
Location gearbox on the surface giving adequate rigidity. Mating surfaces should be machined and flat.
Mating surfaces must be inside of definite geometric tolerances (see manual). This is often specially correct of flange-mounted gearboxes with splined hollow shafts.
In applications that involve high radial loads with the output end, flange mounting is recommended for some gearbox sizes as this mounting can make use of the double pilot diameters supplied in these gearboxes.
Make sure the gearbox is suitable for that demanded mounting position.
Use screws of resistance class eight.eight and more than to safe the gearbox. Torque up screws towards the figures
indicated from the relevant tables.
With transmitted output torque higher than or equal 70% of the indicated M2max torque, and with
frequent motion reversals, use screws with minimum resistance 10.9.
Some gearbox sizes is often fastened making use of both screws or pins. Of pin seated from the frame the gearboxes be at the least one.5 times pin diameter.
b) Connections
Safe the connection components to gearbox input and output. Will not tap them with hammers or comparable equipment.
To insert these components, utilize the services screws and threaded holes offered over the shafts. Be sure to clean off any grease or protects through the shafts just before fitting any connection components.
Fitting hydraulic motors.
Be careful the O ring among motor flange and gearbox input flange when assembling. Install the
hydraulic motor before filling lube oil into the gearbox.
Connecting the hydraulic brake.
The hydraulic circuit should be this kind of to make sure that brake is launched instants prior to gearbox begins and applied following gearbox has stopped. Check out that pressure during the hydraulic line for brake release is at zero every time gearbox is stopped.
Path of rotation
Motors are connected on the appropriate electric or hydraulic circuit in accordance with their course of rotation.
When carrying out these connections, bear in mind that all gearboxes, whether or not during the in-line or proper angle style and design, have the exact same direction of rotation each at input and output.
