Observing a few guidelines for proper set up is essential to your trustworthy and right operation from the gearbox or gear motor.
The rules set out here are intended like a preliminary guidebook to choosing gearbox or gear motor. For effective and correct set up, comply with the instructions given during the installation, make use of the maintenances manual for your gearbox out there from our sales department.
Following is a brief outline of set up principles:
a) Fastening:
Area gearbox on a surface delivering satisfactory rigidity. Mating surfaces need to be machined and flat.
Mating surfaces must be within definite geometric tolerances (see guide). This can be in particular correct of flange-mounted gearboxes with splined hollow shafts.
In applications that involve higher 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.
Make certain the gearbox is ideal for the essential mounting place.
Use screws of resistance class 8.8 and above to secure the gearbox. Torque up screws for the figures
indicated in the pertinent tables.
With transmitted output torque better than or equal 70% in the indicated M2max torque, and with
regular movement reversals, use screws with minimal resistance 10.9.
Some gearbox sizes can be fastened making use of either screws or pins. Of pin seated inside the frame the gearboxes be at the very least 1.five instances pin diameter.
b) Connections
Secure the connection components to gearbox input and output. Usually do not tap them with hammers or equivalent tools.
To insert these elements, make use of the services screws and threaded holes provided around the shafts. Be sure you clean off any grease or protects through the shafts ahead of fitting any connection parts.
Fitting hydraulic motors.
Be careful the O ring between motor flange and gearbox input flange when assembling. Install the
hydraulic motor before filling lube oil to the gearbox.
Connecting the hydraulic brake.
The hydraulic circuit should be such to make certain that brake is released instants in advance of gearbox starts and applied after gearbox has stopped. Check that stress in the hydraulic line for brake release is at zero each time gearbox is stopped.
Route of rotation
Motors are connected to the appropriate electric or hydraulic circuit according to their path of rotation.
When executing these connections, bear in mind that all gearboxes, whether or not during the in-line or ideal angle design and style, possess the similar path of rotation the two at input and output.
