Bevel Gearbox

Bevel gearbox with spiral teeth for drawing partial torque from a main drive shaft

Bearing arrangement of bevel gears with spiral teeth

Function

In the construction of special machines, it is often necessary to draw a partial torque off a main drive shaft. The bevel gearbox shown is intended for this purpose. The bevel gears with spiral teeth run quietly and are insensitive to shocks.

Requirements

In order to achieve optimum tooth mesh, torque transmission and quiet running, the bearings used in the bevel gear arrangement must:

  • have high runout accuracy
  • have sufficient rigidity
  • be free from clearance

The bearing arrangement of the bevel gears must support radial and axial loads. A life of 15 000 to 20 000 h is also required.
