STOBER ServoFit™ Modular System

servo gear unitsServo motors don’t necessarily need a planetary gearbox. In addition to the great planetary offering it has, STOBER offers the ServoFit™ Modular System. These gear reducers use helical gearing and can handle your servo motor needs.

The SMS series literally has billions of options – various mounting configurations, case sizes, ratios, output options, and more equate to anything you need for your machine. Choosing what you need is easy – use our online product configurator or contact our application support team to find your product.

Application Success: Flexographic Printing

STOBER serves a variety of industries, including printing. We had a customer who had problems with their flexographic printing machine.

Customer was using a competitor’s gearbox. The application required very high input speeds. The competitor’s units were overheating and destroying the seals, causing oil to leak.

STOBER went to the customer and evaluated the machine. We recommended our P series unit with the servocool option to improve airflow and reduce seal wear. This eliminated the issue and allowed the customer to save money by extending the gearbox’s life, minimizing maintenance, and reducing inventory.

What Makes a STOBER Gear Reducer Require No Maintenance?

productBanner

How do you make the world’s toughest gearbox, requiring no maintenance? It starts with the gearing. Our high precision gears are machined after hardening to provide the best quality. This minimizes metal shavings in the oil. We use magnetic drain plugs to remove any particles from the oil.

No breathers or vents prevents any contaminants from entering the gearbox and keeps oil in. Our units are sealed for life, eliminating leaking.
STOBER works with the best suppliers to provide the ultimate quality. We use SKF bearings to eliminate premature failure, Freudenberg seals that can withstand harsh environments, and Mobil lubricants that do not create pressure that blows out seals.

Learn how you can free up your maintenance team to do other preventative maintenance instead of working on leaking gearboxes. Call us at (888) 786-2371 or visit www.stober.com

Integrating STOBER Drives Hollow Bore Motors into Your Kinetix System

STOBER’s EZHD, EZHP, and EZM are all Rockwell Enabled. They work with the Kinetix 6500 Version 23 and up as well as the Kinetix 5700 Version 2 and up. They utilize Heidenhein Endat 2.2 digital single turn absolute positioning.

To enable the motor, choose the correct STOBER motor from the drop-down menu. On the feedback tab, choose alignment = motor offset. This will trigger the drive to use the commutation offset that is stored in the nameplate.

If you wish to test the motor, you can highlight the motion group you are using and select motion direct commands. Select the command you want to use and click execute to start the command.

If you need any assistance, please contact STOBER at 606-759-5090.

Innovative Solutions for the Packaging Industry

packaging“At an average of $175/sq ft, space requirements can easily be a million-dollar problem.”

Floor space is expensive and uncompromising, limits the ability to place more machines, and increases production. STOBER can reduce equipment footprint by 20%, along with minimizing maintenance and components. STOBER’s large selection is ideal for the diverse needs of packaging. Continuous/intermittent applications can be filled for dry, wash-down, and ready to eat environments.

Why use a STOBER EZ motor?

ez

STOBER released its next generation EZ hollow bore motor series. The hollow bore is ideal for high speed applications where air or electrical wires need to pass through the motor. The advantages of this product line are the shorter length for more compact solutions, high torque density, optional braking, and a hollow bore. It also offers flexibility with compact size and mounting, dual shafted output, increased accuracy and speed, and stronger bearings.

What’s the difference between an EZHD, EZHP, and EZM? EZHD is a hollow bore motor with a direct drive. There is no gearing in this unit. The EZHP is a hollow bore motor with integrated gearing. The EZM is a hollow bore motor that can drive a nut from the ball screw.

ATEX Certified Gearboxes

STOBER has ATEX certified gearboxes for explosive environments.  Our ATEX rating meets 2014/34/EU directive, has a protection level for gas and dust, and can handle temperature class of T4 and T3 (275-392°F).

Having an ATEX certified gearbox can:

  • Help certify your machine as ATEX rated
  • Protect against potential ignition source, such as mechanically generated sparks, electrostatic discharge, and high surface temperatures

ATEXOur gearboxes can be configured to accept a manual override, such as a hand wheel or wrench.  STOBER’s solutions can be designed to fit your needs.

Save Space with a Geared motor

gearmotor

Do you want to save space in your application? This can be done with a STOBER geared motor. By utilizing an integral unit, you can save over 20% in length by eliminating motor adapter plates and coupling. Not only can you save space but you can also take advantage of less inertia and a higher torque density.
