Catalogue excerpts

The RV Series is a family of planocentric reduction gear mechanisms designed for precise motion control. The mechanisms incorporate a large number of simultaneously engaged gear teeth, and have compact, lightweight and highly rigid construction that is strong against overloading. Furthemore, minimal backlash, rotary vibration and inertia assure rapid acceleration, smooth motion and extremely accurate positioning. The RV Series reduction gears are ideally suited for precision mechanical control in factory robots, machine tools, and assembly and conveying equipment where precise positioning, stiffness...

Benefits: Increases reliabilty Reduces overall cost Attributed to: Built-in angular ball bearing construction improves ability to support external loads, increases moment rigidity and maximum allowable moment. Reduces the number of components required. Simplifies installation and maintenance. 2 STAGE REDUCTION Benefits: Reduces vibration Reduces inertia (GD2) Attributed to: Low speed rotation of the RV gear reduces vibration. Reduced size of the motor coupling part (input gear) lowers intertia. ALL MAIN ELEMENTS ARE SUPPORTED ON BOTH SIDES Benefits: Higher torsional stiffness Less vibration High...

2 CONSTRUCTION and OPERATION PRINCIPLE Construction Case RV gear Main bearing Hold flange Input gear Crankshaft Spur gear Principle of speed reduction The RV-E is a 2-stage reduction gear. 1st stage Spur gear reduction An input gear engages with and rotates spur gears that are coupled to crankshafts. Several overall gear ratios can be provided by selecting various first stage ratios. 2nd stage Epicyclic gear reduction Crankshafts driven by the spur gears cause an eccentric motion of two epicyclic gears called RV gears that are offset 180 degrees from one another to provide a balanced load. The...

Notes: 1. Set maximum input shaft revolutions to a value equal to or lower than the value of maximum allowable output revolutions multiplied by the above speed ratio for each type. 2. The input capacity (kW) in the above table is determined by the efficiency of these reduction gears. m 3. The output torque (In-lb) is so determined that the service life may be maintained constant for any output revolutions. (N-T 3 = Constant) 4. The rated torque is a torque at an output speed of 15 r/min, which is used as a basis for service life calculations. (Refer to the rated service life, page 15) The RV-6E,...
