This Learning Center Classroom details the most common gear types for motion applications — as well as the contained gear trains known as gearboxes (those mechanical components consisting of a series of integrated gears) and other iterations to simplify integration and servotuning.
The function ofGEARING is to mesh with other gear elements to transmit altered torque and rotation. In fact, gearing can change the speed, torque, and direction of motion from a drive source.
GEAR TYPES AND USES
Worm gear efficiency
Wave & cycloidal gearing for robotics
Driving the timber industry
Worm gears are often used for their ability to provide very high reduction ratios in a compact, single-stage design.
Many of today’s precision applications necessitate gears capable of dramatic speed reductions, power densities, and transmission accuracies.
Some gear units and gearmotors are specifically designed to handle heavy-duty processes.
CGI, Inc.’s core business is designing and manufacturing precision components and sub assemblies to enable design excellence across a wide array of applications.
From Prototype to Production CGI enables design excellence across a wide range of industrial applications. CGI is your design and manufacturing partner helping to differentiate your product or innovation.
When a motor is being designed into a motion control system, all too often the benefits of a gearhead are realized much too late. Designing in a gearhead at the end of the project will many times cause delay and additional cost, which could have been prevented at the start of the project.
CGI Motion enables design excellence across a wide range of industrial applications using instrument grade precision gear drives and servo gearbox products.
Quickly configure and select the right gearbox for your application. This step by step process will produce a part number, description and generate a 3D CAD model for use in any CAD package. Individual configurators available by CGI product family for ease of use
