Whether the requirement is for solid or hollow shafts, fully enclosed gear units (gear heads) or highly integrative component sets, lightweight, heavy-duty, fast or flexible gears – Nabtesco’s broad portfolio and detailed development expertise satisfy virtually every requirement with respect to precision, dynamics and reliability in gears. How this is applied in practice will be demonstrated by the cycloidal gear specialist at SPS 2019, for example on the basis of the new 30-60 kg robot QIROX QRC-30/60-PL from CLOOS.
Cycloidal design for leading-edge performance
In cycloidal gears the force is transferred by means of pins and rollers. This ensures high efficiency, exceptional resistance to shock loads (up to 5 times the rated torque), and minimum backlash throughout the entire life cycle (hysteresis loss < 1 arcminute). The two-stage reduction principle of the precision gears results in excellent performance with respect to dynamics and smooth operation, as well as high repeat and path accuracy.
First choice for high-precision positioning tasks
The high efficiency of Nabtesco gears makes them ideal for use in numerous applications. With more than 8 million are in use worldwide. The gear systems deliver outstanding performance not only in robotics, but also in peripheral equipment and numerous other high-tech areas such as handling, welding, machine tool construction, packaging technology, medical technology, or transport & logistics. Cycloidal drives from Nabtesco are the first choice for all applications requiring exact positioning and absolute reliability. In many cases they can replace low backlash planetary gears or hydraulic systems.
Servo gearboxes for the most stringent requirements
Their combination of high precision and dynamics make Nabtesco products ideal for use in servo applications. They enable high speeds and accelerations, in addition to high precision with respect to positioning and rotational speed. They also feature high torsional rigidity and low circumferential backlash. The servo gearboxes are designed for fast and easy integration in the drive train and can be operated with all standard servo motors. Design and assembly costs are reduced substantially by the integrated motor adapter plate and motor shaft coupling for servo motors. An easy plug-and-play solution.
Custom tailored gear solution
A distinctive strength of Nabtesco is in engineering services: In coordination with the customer, the world’s biggest manufacturer of cycloidal gears develops custom-tailored drive concepts, which are perfectly adapted to the particular requirement – from special gears and custom modifications to complete application-specific solutions.
You will find Nabtesco at SPS 2019 in Hall 3A, Booth 426.
