How does the drives work for rotation?The drives for rotation are required for controlling rotation of a machine or fixture. Within these devices, reducers and gearmotors are key to vary the direction of rotation. These systems are used for example in mini-excavators, wheeled excavators and caterpillars, cranes, lifting platforms and winches.
Function of the gearboxes in the drives for rotationOne of the functions of a reducer is to change the direction of rotation. Some speed reducers can change the direction of rotation of the input arrow in relation to the output arrow.
In a speed reducer that contains gears with even numbers, the speed reducer can change the direction of rotation. If the input arrow is rotating clockwise, for example, the output arrow will rotate in the opposite direction. But, if the input arrow rotates counter-clockwise, then the output arrow will rotate clockwise.
This works differently if the speed reducer has odd numbers on its gear trains. In this case the input and output of the reducer arrow will rotate in the same direction. If the input arrow rotates in a clockwise direction, the output arrow will rotate in that direction.
