Observing a couple of principles for correct set up is important to the dependable and suitable operation of the gearbox or gear motor.
The guidelines set out here are meant being a preliminary manual to picking out gearbox or gear motor. For effective and good installation, follow the directions given inside the installation, make use of the maintenances guide for that gearbox accessible from our revenue department.
Following can be a brief outline of set up guidelines:
a) Fastening:
Spot gearbox on a surface supplying satisfactory rigidity. Mating surfaces really should be machined and flat.
Mating surfaces have to be within definite geometric tolerances (see manual). This is especially true of flange-mounted gearboxes with splined hollow shafts.
In applications that involve substantial radial loads at the output end, flange mounting is advised for some gearbox sizes as this mounting makes utilization of the double pilot diameters supplied in these gearboxes.
Make sure the gearbox is suitable for the necessary mounting position.
Use screws of resistance class eight.eight and over to secure the gearbox. Torque up screws for the figures
indicated within the relevant tables.
With transmitted output torque greater than or equal 70% on the indicated M2max torque, and with
frequent movement reversals, use screws with minimal resistance ten.9.
Some gearbox sizes could be fastened employing both screws or pins. Of pin seated inside the frame the gearboxes be no less than 1.five times pin diameter.
b) Connections
Secure the connection parts to gearbox input and output. Do not tap them with hammers or similar resources.
To insert these parts, utilize the services screws and threaded holes offered to the shafts. You’ll want to clean off any grease or protects through the shafts prior to fitting any connection parts.
Fitting hydraulic motors.
Be cautious the O ring involving motor flange and gearbox input flange when assembling. Set up the
hydraulic motor prior to filling lube oil to the gearbox.
Connecting the hydraulic brake.
The hydraulic circuit must be this kind of to make certain that brake is launched instants in advance of gearbox starts and utilized soon after gearbox has stopped. Examine that stress inside the hydraulic line for brake release is at zero every time gearbox is stopped.
Direction of rotation
Motors are connected towards the ideal electric or hydraulic circuit according to their path of rotation.
When carrying out these connections, bear in mind that all gearboxes, whether or not from the in-line or proper angle style and design, possess the identical path of rotation the two at input and output. For far more particulars on the connection of electrical and hydraulic motors, see pertinent sections within this catalogue.
