Classification of stepper motor reducer

Classification of stepper motor reducer

When stepping motors require high torque at low speeds, we will choose reducers. Reduce the speed through a reducer with a certain reduction ratio, while increasing the torque by a certain ratio. The reducer is a mechanism that uses a gear speed converter to reduce the number of revolutions of the motor (motor) to the required number of revolutions and obtain a larger torque. Then the classification and selection of the reducer is very important.

Worm Gear Reducer for Step Motor

The characteristics of the worm gear reducer are relatively large size, not compact enough, self-locking under certain conditions, relatively low efficiency, about 60%. Because the efficiency is relatively low, it cannot be satisfied in many occasions, and it is generally not recommended to use it with a stepper motor.

Planetary reducer for stepper motor

Planetary reducer Planets, as the name suggests, revolve around the star, so the planetary reducer is like this. There are three planetary gears rotating around a sun gear. Planetary reducer has the characteristics of high strength, small size, low noise, low price, large transmission torque, long life, and high transmission efficiency, which is probably above 80%. Puse integrated motor and planetary reducer are widely used in textile, packaging, pharmaceutical, paper, woodworking, electronic instrumentation, medical, environmental protection and other mechanical equipment fields. Puse closed-loop stepper reducer provides optimized industry solutions to help Equipment optimization in various industries.

Harmonic reducer for stepping motor

The harmonic reducer is mainly composed of four basic components: a wave generator, a flexible gear, a flexible bearing, and a rigid gear. The harmonic drive reducer is a flexible gear that is equipped with a flexible bearing to make the flexible gear produce controllable elastic deformation. Gear transmission that meshes with rigid gears to transmit movement and power. It is characterized by high reduction ratio, small backlash, small size and high efficiency, but it is expensive and suitable for equipment with strict requirements. In general, it is recommended to use a stepping motor with a planetary reducer. For example, the integrated motor is used in papermaking equipment, and it can be used stably under the condition of long-term high-speed operation, bringing customers a "zero defect" experience.
