Planetary gearbox is one of the most compact, innovative and technologically brilliant product and is the future of gearbox market for construction machinery. Construction is a segment where it needs rigid, rugged construction of gearbox with special castings of special grade (SG) iron to allow usage in extreme ambient conditions like ambient temperatures, dusty and dirty environment, various humidity conditions, and handling by unskilled labour.
Special planetary gearboxes are developed for bar bending machines where challenges of compactness, frequent On/Off operations, short resting times, special outputs, special breather/oil level indicator and many more specialities in product to fit it in bar bending machine. Radicon Powerbuild has the complete range of planetary gearboxes and geared motors and can cater a wide torque range up to 65,000 Nm which covers the industry requirement.
Radicon Powerbuild offers planetary geared motor with nearly 10 rpm speed of planetary gearbox. It bends the bars safely and faster than any other conventional system with remarkable process downtime. Earlier, arrangement of belt pulley is replaced by this highly efficient, low backlash and technologically advanced system, i.e. planetary gear motors.
Safe inclination measurement under difficult conditions At bauma, ifm electronic presented its new dynamic inclination sensors of the JD series. They are for example used for the detection of inclination angles and positions of mobile machines. Typical applications are the horizontal levelling of platforms or the boom measurement on wheeled excavators. Especially for mobile machines, conventional inclination sensors often reach their limits. Vibration, impact or external acceleration of the machine, which may occur during starting or braking, may lead to faulty measured values. The inclination sensors of the JD series do not have this problem. They use a 3D gyroscope as well as a 3D acceleration sensor. A 6-axes IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) with intelligent sensor fusion filters determines the precise inclination values on this basis. The data of the gyroscope correct the influences caused by acceleration, vibration or impact. This is why the quality of the signals provided by the JD sensors is very high even under extreme environmental conditions.
Different versions of the new inclination sensors are available so that they can be mounted horizontally as well as vertically. They reach a static precision of ±0.3° and a dynamic precision of ±0.5° in moving systems. The inclination sensors of the JD series have a robust housing made of aluminium injection moulding. They are shock-resistant up to 100 g and meet the IP67 and IP69K protection ratings. Together with the wide operating temperature range from - 40°C to 85°C, they can be used under extreme conditions and always provide precise measured values. An integrated CANopen interface is used for the transfer of the measured values and also for the parameter setting of the sensors. If required, an integrated terminating resistor can be activated via software.
