Observing a few rules for correct installation is crucial on the reliable and proper operation from the gearbox or gear motor.
The guidelines set out here are meant as a preliminary manual to picking out gearbox or gear motor. For efficient and correct installation, comply with the guidelines provided from the set up, make use of the maintenances manual to the gearbox available from our revenue department.
Following is often a quick outline of set up principles:
a) Fastening:
Place gearbox on a surface supplying ample rigidity. Mating surfaces must be machined and flat.
Mating surfaces need to be within definite geometric tolerances (see guide). This is certainly primarily true of flange-mounted gearboxes with splined hollow shafts.
In applications that involve large radial loads with the output finish, flange mounting is advised for some gearbox sizes as this mounting can make use of the double pilot diameters supplied in these gearboxes.
Ensure that the gearbox is appropriate for that essential mounting place.
Use screws of resistance class 8.eight and in excess of to safe the gearbox. Torque up screws to the figures
indicated during the related tables.
With transmitted output torque better than or equal 70% from the indicated M2max torque, and with
frequent movement reversals, use screws with minimum resistance ten.9.
Some gearbox sizes is usually fastened making use of either screws or pins. Of pin seated within the frame the gearboxes be no less than one.5 times pin diameter.
b) Connections
Safe the connection parts to gearbox input and output. Usually do not tap them with hammers or equivalent tools.
To insert these elements, use the service screws and threaded holes provided around the shafts. Be sure you clean off any grease or protects through the shafts in advance of fitting any connection components.
Fitting hydraulic motors.
Be cautious the O ring involving 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 need to be such to be sure that brake is launched instants prior to gearbox commences and applied right after gearbox has stopped. Test that pressure within the hydraulic line for brake release is at zero anytime gearbox is stopped.
Course of rotation
Motors are connected on the appropriate electric or hydraulic circuit based on their route of rotation.
When performing these connections, keep in mind that all gearboxes, whether while in the in-line or ideal angle design and style, possess the same direction of rotation each at input and output.
