Observing a few rules for proper set up is vital on the trustworthy and right operation of the gearbox or gear motor.
The principles set out listed below are intended as being a preliminary guidebook to selecting gearbox or gear motor. For successful and good installation, observe the directions provided during the set up, make use of the maintenances guide for that gearbox readily available from our revenue division.
Following is a brief outline of installation guidelines:
a) Fastening:
Spot gearbox on the surface providing adequate rigidity. Mating surfaces needs to be machined and flat.
Mating surfaces needs to be inside definite geometric tolerances (see manual). This can be primarily true of flange-mounted gearboxes with splined hollow shafts.
In applications that involve higher radial loads on the output end, flange mounting is recommended for some gearbox sizes as this mounting can make utilization of the double pilot diameters presented in these gearboxes.
Make sure the gearbox is ideal to the expected mounting position.
Use screws of resistance class eight.eight and in excess of to safe the gearbox. Torque up screws to your figures
indicated from the related tables.
With transmitted output torque better than or equal 70% in the indicated M2max torque, and with
frequent movement reversals, use screws with minimal resistance 10.9.
Some gearbox sizes can be fastened applying either screws or pins. Of pin seated within the frame the gearboxes be at least one.five occasions pin diameter.
b) Connections
Secure the connection components to gearbox input and output. Will not tap them with hammers or very similar resources.
To insert these elements, make use of the support screws and threaded holes provided on the shafts. You should definitely clean off any grease or protects through the shafts before fitting any connection parts.
Fitting hydraulic motors.
Be cautious the O ring concerning motor flange and gearbox input flange when assembling. Install the
hydraulic motor just before filling lube oil in to the gearbox.
Connecting the hydraulic brake.
The hydraulic circuit really should be this kind of to ensure that brake is released instants just before gearbox commences and utilized immediately after gearbox has stopped. Verify that stress in the hydraulic line for brake release is at zero every time gearbox is stopped.
Course of rotation
Motors are linked for the suitable electric or hydraulic circuit based on their direction of rotation.
When carrying out these connections, bear in mind that all gearboxes, irrespective of whether in the in-line or appropriate angle style and design, possess the same direction of rotation both at input and output. For more information of your connection of electrical and hydraulic motors, see related sections in this catalogue.
