Reducers are being used more and more widely in the market. There are various reducers on the market. How to choose suitable reducer? Firstly, understand the advantages and disadvantages of various reducers, and secondly, summarize and match your demand.
1. The advantages and disadvantages of worm gear reducer:
It has reverse self-locking function and can have larger reduction ratio. The input shaft and output shaft are not on the same axis or on the same plane; generally it’s big, and the transmission efficiency and accuracy are not so high.
2. The advantages and disadvantages of the harmonic reducer:
Harmonic reducer uses the controllable elastic deformation of flexible components to transmit motion and power. It is not large in size and has high accuracy; But the flexible wheel has limited life, and is not impact resistant. It has poor rigidity, and the input speed cannot be too high.
3. The advantages and disadvantages of planetary reducer:
Advantages include compact structure, small return stroke , high accuracy, long service life, and the additional output torque can be large. But the price is much expensive.
4. The advantages and disadvantages of gear reducers:
It has the characteristics of small size and large transmission torque. The gear reducer is planned and manufactured on the basis of the modular combination system, and there are a lot of motor combinations, device methods and structure plans. The transmission ratio is finely graded, satisfying different operating conditions, realizing electromechanical integration, high transmission efficiency, low energy consumption, and superior performance. Because of the variety of installation methods, mounting is much more troublesome.
