Anti-Backlash Gears

Backlash in a gear drive is the lost motion when the direction of rotation reverses. Gear mesh requires enough clearance to prevent the teeth from binding. This lost motion can be reduced by using higher quality gears with tighter concentricity and controlled center distance but backlash cannot be eliminated completely with normal gears.

In motion control applications, backlash between gears needs to be minimized. Ondrives.US can supply anti-backlash gears in spur or worm type that eliminate backlash in low torque applications.
