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 ?
