White Paper: Size Your Gearbox Correctly

When your equipment calls for a right angle gearbox, proper sizing makes a difference. It’s important to consider many application factors, or you’ll face problems down the road. Possible problems can include increased maintenance, worn teeth and reduced mean time between failure (MTBF). Additionally, an oversized gearbox will cost more than necessary. Our new white …

Servo-Reducers Control Backlash in Composite Machinery, Part 2July 22, 2022

Servo-Reducers Control Backlash in Composite Machinery, Part 2

Backlash is not an option when building advanced composite machines that demand precise, high-speed motion. Failure to prevent backlash can hinder motion accuracy and damage the machine or the finished part. In a previous blog post, we described how you can combine Andantex gearboxes to build preloaded drive systems with exceptional stiffness using SRP Series …

Servo-Reducers Control Backlash in Composite Machinery, Part 1July 19, 2022

Servo-Reducers Control Backlash in Composite Machinery, Part 1

Implementing the right gearboxes for machining and automatic fiber placement of composite materials is no easy task. Torsional, radial and axial stiffness (i.e., stiffness on rack) are important factors that can affect the positioning accuracy of heavy-duty robotic axes. However, when laying up fiber, quick load reversals during linear or rotary motion can create vibrations, …
