Observing a number of guidelines for proper installation is essential on the reputable and correct operation in the gearbox or gear motor.
The principles set out listed below are meant as being a preliminary guide to choosing gearbox or gear motor. For efficient and appropriate installation, follow the directions offered within the installation, make use of the maintenances manual for your gearbox available from our product sales department.
Following is often a quick outline of installation rules:
a) Fastening:
Spot gearbox on a surface supplying sufficient rigidity. Mating surfaces really should be machined and flat.
Mating surfaces has to be inside definite geometric tolerances (see manual). This is specially real of flange-mounted gearboxes with splined hollow shafts.
In applications that involve high radial loads on the output finish, flange mounting is advisable for some gearbox sizes as this mounting makes use of the double pilot diameters offered in these gearboxes.
Ensure the gearbox is suitable for the essential mounting position.
Use screws of resistance class eight.eight and in excess of to safe the gearbox. Torque up screws to your figures
indicated in the related tables.
With transmitted output torque higher than or equal 70% of your indicated M2max torque, and with
regular movement reversals, use screws with minimal resistance 10.9.
Some gearbox sizes is often fastened using both screws or pins. Of pin seated from the frame the gearboxes be at least 1.5 instances pin diameter.
b) Connections
Safe the connection components to gearbox input and output. Tend not to tap them with hammers or related resources.
To insert these parts, make use of the support screws and threaded holes supplied around the shafts. Be sure you clean off any grease or protects from your shafts ahead of fitting any connection components.
Fitting hydraulic motors.
Be cautious the O ring amongst motor flange and gearbox input flange when assembling. Install the
hydraulic motor in advance of filling lube oil to the gearbox.
Connecting the hydraulic brake.
The hydraulic circuit must be this kind of to be sure that brake is launched instants in advance of gearbox commences and utilized soon after gearbox has stopped. Examine that pressure from the hydraulic line for brake release is at zero whenever gearbox is stopped.
Path of rotation
Motors are linked towards the appropriate electric or hydraulic circuit in accordance with their course of rotation.
When executing these connections, keep in mind that all gearboxes, no matter whether during the in-line or suitable angle style, possess the same path of rotation both at input and output. For a lot more specifics with the connection of electric and hydraulic motors, see relevant sections within this catalogue.
