  • Gearbox Temperature Reduction
    Situation: A major paper manufacturer was experiencing unacceptable wear and out of cycle maintenance issues with a gearbox. The issue was root-caused to critical temperatures in the gearbox during continuous operation. The manufacturer was seeking a solution to lower gearbox temperatures by >10%
  • Gearbox Preventative Maintenance is a Priority
    in the future. Effective lubrication is extremely critical to all gearboxes and proper lubrication will help prevent gear and bearing failures. Many gear and bearing failures result from insufficient or interrupted lubrication. Maintaining proper lubrication includes using the proper lubricant, keeping oil
  • What Gearing Types are Typical of Fractional Horsepower Motors
    progress in permissible inertia and vibration reduction. These changes are largely dependent upon the types of gearwheels operating inside in each gearbox.
  • Gearboxes
    fixed-speed drive still offers the best combination of rugged and reliable speed reduction at low cost. Many of these transmission technologies seem to overlap. However, one factor, such as lubrication, speed, or durability should set the speed reducer apart as the clear choice for an application
  • Replacing a Mechanical Adjustable Speed Drive with a Variable Speed Drive
    motor is connected to a variable diameter sheave (item A in Figure 1) that transmits power through a belt to another variable diameter sheave (Item B). An internal gearbox can then be used to further reduce speed as necessary. The variable sheave/belt assembly will act as a reduction gear up
  • Medical Device Link .
    double-reduction helical gearbox provides a large degree of flexibility in speed ranges. The operator interface uses a color touch screen Pentium computer running Windows NT 4.0 workstation. 1 Extrusion Dr., Pawcatuck, CT 06379. Two families of rotary-knife cutters are suitable for applications ranging from
  • Finally . . . a Chair That Falls Down and Picks Itself Up Again
    torque of 4.5 Nm. He added his own 9:1 gearbox for a total reduction ratio of 13,734:1. "We solved the problem with sheer torque, flat out power, " says Donovan. The trade-off is a corresponding drop in speed. "Motors with enough torque to stand the chair up quickly would be too big and increase
  • U.S. Metalcasting Industry is Committed to Greater Energy Efficiency and Environmental Sustainability
    , and gearbox housings, along with other complex cast parts that support this rapidly growing industry. Castings for other renewable-energy sources range from pumping equipment and turbines for biopower to generators, pumps, and condensers for solar-energy systems. The U.S. metalcasting industry also
