: 60% of the global market share RV precision gears utilize a planocentric deceleration mechanism for high-precision control. RV precision gears are compact and lightweight, and because RV precision gears include many simultaneously meshing surfaces, they feature high rigidity and strong resistance to overload. The design of the RV precision gear minimizes backlash, rotational vibration, and inertia; which leads to excellent acceleration performance, smooth movement, and high positioning accuracy. RV precision gears have a proven track record in many fields of automation, including:...

Benefits The AF series can solve your problems. Merit 1 Compact design With the AF series... The machining of gears onto the motor shaft results in a very compact design; The total length is extended due to the input gear and coupling. up to 23% shorter than conventional models. Greater reliability Machining is very difficult, resulting in axial runout, poor concentricity accuracy, and producing abnormal noise. Shipped after machining and assembly, no need to worry about abnormal noise. Greater quality O-ring or liquid sealant Greaseing can be troublesome, If seals are forgotten, grease can...

Principle of speed reduction The RV is a 2-stage precision reduction gear. 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. 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 eccentric motion of the RV gears causes engagement of the cycloidal shaped gear teeth with cylindrically shaped pins located...

Option code 0: Without motor brake S: Single oil seal Single oil seal is standard. D: Double oil seal Double oil seal is standard. 0: Standard component Indicates the option code. Currently, only the code for standard components is available. Rotation direction The relationship between the motor rotation direction and output stage rotation direction is shown below. As the motor rotation direction and output stage rotation direction may be reversed, check the following table. The information in the table above indicates the rotation direction viewed from the output stage side. Note: CW...
