Today, I'm gonna give you a detailed explanation of the application scenarios, characteristics, and advantages of our gear reducer: WF's key five core components: eccentric shaft, cycloidal wheel, cycloidal casing, crossed roller bearing, and flange.
WF gear reducers are widely used in precision industrial transmission fields such as collaborative robots, injection molding manipulators, semiconductors, medical equipment, machine tools, aerospace equipment, and filling packaging equipment.
Installation advantages of WF gear reducers: Unlike RV gear reducers on the market, our WF reducers can be directly connected to the motor on the input side without any connectors. The output side can also be directly connected to the customer's equipment without the need for additional connection covers. Moreover, the axial dimensions are short and the structure is compact.
Advantages of WF gear reducers compared to RV gear reducers on the market: WF gear reducers adopt the cycloidal needle wheel principle, eliminating the planetary gear stage in the RV structure and integrating high-strength crossed roller bearings. They have the advantages of high precision, high rigidity, and small size. RV gear reducers on the market, such as (Diren, Sumitomo, etc.), require front and rear covers. The reason their speed ratio can be larger than WF's is because they combine planetary gear reducers and RV gear reducers, which is equivalent to two stages, making them bulky.
Advantages of WF gear reducers compared to planetary and harmonic gear reducers: The difference between WF gear reducers and planetary gear reducers: small size, large speed ratio, strong rigidity, good repeatability in positioning, and can maintain fault-free operation under extremely low noise and low vibration conditions while ensuring overturning stiffness and torsional stiffness.
The difference between WF gear reducers and harmonic gear reducers: Harmonic gear reducers have a small size but low torque and poor rigidity. Additional bearings are required on the load side. Due to the flexible wheel inside the reducer, there will be continuous sliding friction, resulting in faster loss of accuracy over time.
The new WF gear reducer can replace harmonic gear reducers without any major changes in size and external shape. It has a small size and adopts crossed roller bearings internally, providing high rigidity. The reducer only has rolling friction internally, resulting in lower accuracy loss and longer lifespan.
