Life Expectancy or MTBF of Gearheads

Postby om_tech_support_JT » Mon May 10, 2010 1:52 pm

Q: What is the life expectancy or MTBF of a gearhead?

A: The life of gearhead varies depending on the load, how the load is applied, and the operating speed. Oriental Motor defines life under certain conditions as "rated life", based on which the life under actual operation is calculated according to load conditions and other factors. The lifetime under actual conditions of use can be calculated with the equations in the following link. Please note that the calculation is a reference not a guaranteed value. ... h_life.pdf
