A compact standardised Solution whereof electric motor and gearbox are supplied in one package. Geared Motors can be classified based on direction of power flow: Helical geared motors, Parallel-shaft (shaft mounted) geared motors, Bevel Helical Geared Motors, Helical worm geared motors, and Spiral Geared Motors. Geared motors can also be classified to: AC Geared motors, and Servo Geared Motors. Ac Geared motors are mainly used where relatively higher power and lower dynamics is required, whereas servo geared motors are mainly used where high dynamics and zero backlash is required.
Ratios associated with Geared motors usually change in steps from one geared motor’s size to another. Chain drives can provide precise ratio to match application’s requirement. Chains and Sprockets can transfer high powers and accomodate different designs layouts which provides more flexibility for designers.
When the design call for transferring the torque between two rotating shafts, fixed torque and speed ratios between driving and driven rotating shafts, or even changing direction of rotation of output shafts, belt drives are one of the solutions that precisely control speed and torque ratios particularly at relatively higher speeds and lower torque range compared to chain drives. Thus, Belt drives usually connected directly to the output of electric motor to refine the input speed to either gearbox or the application.
Belt Drives encompass the three main types: Synchronous or Timing Belt Drives, V Belt Drives, and Ribbed Belt Drives. Synchronous Timing belt drives are suitable for accurate control of speed ratio where no slip is desired between rotating shafts. This is useful in servo applications, printers, accurate positioning and many similar applications. V belt drives are dominating heavy duty industries and transfer higher range of powers. V belt design allows a slip when torque exceeds its designated design value. This slip is crucial to protect the driven machine from catastrophic damage. Ribbed belt drives are dominant in automotive industries and mostly used for higher speeds applications with less power and torque demands.
Mechanical Couplings have myriad variants to suite different industries and applications. Besides its role in connecting two rotating shafts, it also could contribute in dampening vibration, provide protection to shafts from sudden change in speed and direction, compensate for shaft misalignements.
Electric Motors are the main driving force to convert electrical energy to mechanical energy in many industrial applications.
Alternating Current AC motors are the most widely used cost effective motors available for majority of applications. They are low maintenance efficient motors.
Servo motors are permanent magnet motors commonly used in high dynamics applications. They always need a feedback encoder to accurately control speed and position of the motor.
Other types of electric motors are: Direct Current DC Motors, Brushless DC motors, Linear motors, and High torque motors.
