Gear Arrangement Gear arrangement is an ingenious engineering design that offers various benefits over the traditional fixed axis gear system design. The unique combination of both power transmission efficiency and compact size allows for a lower loss in efficiency. The more efficient the gear arrangement, (i.e. spur, helical, planetary and worm) the more energy it … Continue reading How to Select the Appropriate Gearbox ?
When considering a gearbox, many factors need to be considered to meet specific application requirements: Gear Ratio Gear ratios are defined as the correlation between the numbers of teeth of two different gears. Commonly, the number of teeth a gear has is proportional to its circumference. This means that the gear with a larger circumference … Continue reading How to Select the Appropriate Gearbox ?
Spur gears are made with straight teeth mounted on a parallel shaft. The noise level of spur gears is relatively high due to colliding teeth of the gears which make spur gear teeth prone to wear. Spur gears come in a range of sizes and gear ratios to meet applications requiring a certain speed or … Continue reading Spur Gearbox
Helical gears are cut at angles which allow for gradual contact between each of the helical gear teeth. This type of innovation provides for a smooth and quiet operation. Gearboxes using helical gears are applicable in high horsepower and efficient applications. Physical Properties Helical gears are typically constructed from cast iron, aluminum allow or iron … Continue reading Helical Gearbox
In a gear box, the counter shaft is mashed to the clutch with a use of a couple of gear. So, the counter shaft is always in running condition. When the counter shaft is bringing in contact with the main shaft by use of meshing gears, the main shaft starts to rotate according to the … Continue reading Working of a principle gear box
Provide the torque needed to move the vehicle under a variety of road and load conditions. It does this by changing the gear ratio between the engine crankshaft and vehicle drive wheels. Be shifted into reverse so the vehicle can move backward. Be shifted into neutral for starting the engine. Main parts of gear box … Continue reading Functions and Parts of a Gear Box
The gearbox is the second element of the power train in an automobile. It is used to change the speed and torque of vehicle according to variety of road and load condition. A gearbox changes the engine speed into torque when climbing hills and when the vehicle required. Sometimes it is known as torque converter. … Continue reading What is the gearbox ?
