  • Gearbox Tutorial
    frequency required for most gearbox analysis.
  • 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 for Mixer Applications
    Selecting the right gearbox for your mixer application is important - especially when it is also the key support between the impeller shaft and the motor.
  • A second look at Gearbox efficiencies
    Gearbox efficiency is usually specified at a specific torque. The graph shows efficiency increasing with increasing torque. The graph shows how system efficiency follows combined gearhead and motor efficiencies. Manufacturers often specify motor efficiency. Ditto for gearbox efficiency. However
  • Gearbox Efficience Factors
    Load capacity, usable life, envelope size, and cost: all are very important considerations when designing a gearbox. However, accurately accounting for efficiency losses is a frequently forgotten element of the gearbox design process. These losses can be attributed to several factors: gear set
  • Application Flowchart - Calculate Gearbox Requirements
    Application Flowchart - Calculate Gearbox Requirements
  • Gearbox Service Factors for Overhead Cranes
    One of the most cricical aspects to consider when sizing and selecting a gearbox is the required service factor. Learn how to determine the proper service factor for overhead crane applications.
  • How Does Your Gearbox Sound?
    Sound can be a very subjective thing. What may sound "unusual" to one individual may very well sound "normal" to another. As a method of diagnosing a potential problem with a gearbox or gearmotor, the sound coming from it should not solely be relied on to determine whether a problem exists.
  • How to Maintain the Gearbox Lubrication System
    , and these are largely dependent on the constant supply of lubrication oil in the appropriate quantity, quality and condition. The lifeline of the gearbox is its lubrication system, which is critical for supporting the drive under all modes of operation. The gearbox lubrication system provides an oil
  • Gearmotors: Achieving the Perfect Motor and Gearbox Match
    Focusing on how to choose the right motor/gearbox combination for your OEM application; Engineering Manager, Seth Hulst and Design Engineer, Loren Kamstra explain cost optimization, performance and other critical application considerations. Outlining the basic motor and gearmotor types
  • Preventive maintenance: an examination of the root causes of gearbox failure
    program is learning to identify the causes of equipment failure. Once the cause of failure is determined, one can take steps to avoid the problem in the future. That is the purpose of this paper - to provide plant managers and service technicians with the knowledge to identify causes of gearbox
