Helical gear motors involve a system that is run by electric motors and has teeth aligned at a particular angle with a twisted appearance. These teeth takes the form of a helix and belongs to a type called parallel axis gears. The gear motor system uses a form of gears that are meshed up together. It is composed of an axial instead of a radial flow path and shares the same principle in its design as that of a screw compressor. Though expensive it is very efficient for it has good sealing characteristics. This gear motor system is characterized by several advantages. It is very robust, durable and compact. Other advantages include better low-speed performance as compared to other gear motors and minimal variations between the low and high starting torque.
Helical gear motors follow a certain procedure in their installations. It is sensitive thus requires a lot of care during the installation process. The first step should be checking the nameplate to ensure that everything listed meets your requirements, no damage has taken place on the unit during transit and the operating conditions of every part conforms to what is indicated. If the installation is to take place days after purchase then ensure that storage has been done in a dry place that is free of vibrations. During the actual installation ensure that the geared motor firmly sits on the mounting this prevents vibrations during operation and consequently results to durability. The consequent steps that follow are connecting the shaft to the driven machine, connecting the gear motor to a power supply and testing to check whether it’s working optimally.
