Harmonic Drives 101

Harmonic Drives 101 Harmonic drives are touted as a primary choice for applications requiring precise positional accuracy and repeatability. When combined with unique harmonic drive principles, the simple three-element design based on wave generator, flexspline, and circular spline infuses extremely high production ratio capabilities into a compact, lightweight package. Zero backlash and higher torque-to-weight and torque-to volume ratios can be realized with reduction, speed increaser, and differential gearing constructions.

Harmonic drives are available as fully housed gearheads, actuators complete with motor and encoder, or with special materials, greases, or customer-specific designs. Are you aware of the different harmonic drive gearing configurations and their merits relative to spur or planetary gearing?

Higher Torque Hollow Shafts

Higher Torque Hollow Shafts Magnetic particle brakes feature hollow shafts, obviating the need for a precision alignment shaft for installation. These devices are useful in winding systems and other tasks where variable, smooth slip torque is required. Design News reports that higher torque, attained by magnetizing microscopic stainless steel spheres, is independent of slip RPM.

Compact Clutch is Disengaging

Compact Clutch is Disengaging High performance requirements of an automatic gearbox test rig were satisfied with the backlash-free torque transmission of an EAS compact overload clutch and torsionally rigid coupling. High running speed and immediate drive disengagement capabilities rendered these clutches suitable for gearbox testing. Engineeringtalk tells how they enable easy adjustment of required overload/disengage torques.

Servo Couplings RoHS-Compliant

Servo Couplings RoHS-Compliant New ServoClass couplings feature zero backlash and higher torsional stiffness demanded in applications with high reverse loads and precise positioning specs. Speeds up to 10,000 rpm and torque ratings of 0.5-60 Nm are realized, based on 304 stainless steel disc packs and are compliant with Europe’s RoHS restrictions. Engineer Live provides the details.

Couplings Prove Cost-Effective

Couplings Prove Cost-Effective The superior performance of rubber-in-compression (RIC) couplings over a 20-year span prompted a Swedish district heating utility to discard rubber-in-shear (RIS) devices in favor of RIC. The couplings only required simple maintenance twice to replace the rubber components, while the RIS units incurred longer downtimes and higher maintenance costs. Industrial Technology presents this cost-effective couplings solution.

Circular Fillet Boosts Gear Strength

Circular Fillet Boosts Gear Strength A new spur gear 20° design was verified to function interchangeably with the standard 20° system. Undercutting problems that discourage use of low tooth numbers can be eliminated, and the circular fillet tooth design can be produced by hobbing and other available processes.Gear Technology tells how to increase gear load carrying capacity up to 130%.

Super Finish Subdues Friction

Super Finish Subdues Friction The need to improve gear performance and reduce parasitic friction may lead you to the Isotropic Superfinish Process based on a chemically accelerated vibrating technique. Benefits include virtual elimination of gear tooth wear, pitting, or breakage in automotive gearboxes and drive train components. Learn how you can harness more horsepower in Gear Solutions.

Shape-Shifting Conveyor

Shape-Shifting Conveyor The ability to move product between different elevation patterns is afforded by a variable-shape conveyor from Conveyor Technologies Ltd. Three different angle sections can be configured into eight different conveyor types, and automatic belt tracking prevents mistracking and belt damage during changes from horizontal to incline/decline. American Machinist details belt removal and calibration features.

Prevent Belt Breakdown

Prevent Belt Breakdown Prevent premature belt failure by ensuring proper belt drive alignment. A Plant Engineering article outlines recommendations for measuring and quantifying angular and parallel misalignment problems. Rules of thumb for estimating the amount of misalignment visually will boost the performance of your synchronous and V-belt drive systems. It also suggests checking related brackets and platforms.
