FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

YOU ASKED, WE ANSWERED

Here are some of the most common forms of gearbox failure. The major cause is inadequate lubrication caused by under filling, incorrect specification, mixing or incompatibility, incorrect lubrication and intervals, deteriorated grease or oil, water contamination and particulate contamination.

How does an industrial gearbox work?

An industrial gearbox is an enclosed system that transmits mechanical energy to an output device. Gearboxes can modify their speed, torque, and other attributes to convert the energy into a useable format. ... These machines can slow the rate of rotation to increase torque and speed

What causes gearbox damage?

Here are some of the most common forms of gearbox failure. The major cause is inadequate lubrication caused by under filling, incorrect specification, mixing or incompatibility, incorrect lubrication and intervals, deteriorated grease or oil, water contamination and particulate contamination.

Why gearbox is required?

Most modern gearboxes are used to increase torque while reducing the speed of a prime mover output shaft (e.g. a motor crankshaft). This means that the output shaft of a gearbox rotates at a slower rate than the input shaft, and this reduction in speed produces a mechanical advantage, increasing torque.

How long does it take to fix a gearbox?

The answer is as simple as the average time it takes to rebuild an Industrial Gearbox is 3 to 4 days

What is the gearbox function?

In the most basic sense, a gearbox functions like any system of gears; it alters torque and speed between a driving device like a motor and a load. The gearbox is a mechanical method of transferring energy from one device to another and is used to increase torque while reducing speed.

What is the gearbox service factor?

In simple terms, the service factor is the ratio of the gearbox rated horsepower (or torque) to the application's required horsepower (or torque). Service factors are defined by the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA), based on the type of gearbox, the expected service duty, and the type of application

How do I know if my gearbox needs replacing?

Below are common warning signs of Gearbox trouble that you should be on the lookout for:

1. Not Going Into Gear

2. Smelling Something Burning-Smoke

3. Noisy Gearbox

4. Slipping Gears

5. Leaking Fluid

6. Over Heating

7. Grinding Noise

8. Vibration

9. Chattering

10. Bearing Noise

How do gears make life easier?

Gears are used in many machines. ... Gears make our lives easier in many ways. They allow us to change direction and speed of movement, measure time and create a great force “mechanical output” with a little force input.
