Gears play a crucial role in machines. Gears are the base of any machinery tool that needs to perform some kind of action. Industrial gears are utilized in various industries like food production, defence, automobiles, power generation, railway and many others.
Gears are made using cutting-edge technologies to last long. The main role of all these gears is to bring efficiency to a machine. So it is of utmost importance that one knows the application of a gear before they use it in their machines.
Gears are used to control the power while a particular type of machine is being operated. Different types of industrial machines use different type of gear in are to optimize the productivity by reducing the speed and not the revolutions. Industrial gears are used in a variety of industries like Automobile Industry, Defence Industry, Power Generation, Marine Industry and Construction Industry to name a few.
There are different type of gears are Spur, Helical, Worm, Bevel, and Girth. The most common type of industrial gears being used are Spur gears. The teeth of such type of gears fall parallel to a machine’s rotational axis. The best use of Spur gears are for machines which have low speed applications.Helical type of industrial gears is well known for their teeth-shaped edges which create a thrust load. Like the spur gears, Helical gears, are not parallel to a machine’s rotational axis. Some industries that use Helical gear are rubber, medical, steel, packing, and more.
Worm gears are widely used in steel, sugar, paper, and textile plants. These gears are of two types: Single-Threaded and Multi-Threaded. Also known as wheel industrial gears, worm gears function on two shafts that work together.Bevel gears are used mainly for shafts. They gears are fitted at a right angle to a machine’s rotational axis. Bevel Gears are mainly used in applications like hand drill, printing, and a number of other machines. Girth type of gears, also known as split ring gears, is available at low costs, and is very easy-to-install.
Failure of Industrial gearbox creates a huge impact on production which brings an industry to a grinding halt causing a huge loss. Many companies have developed a range of innovative services that enable a rapid response, very often even faster than a quick repair with a more satisfactory long term solution. American Gear LLC offers a Service Exchange Program so that non-standard gearboxes can be replaced rapidly, sometimes supplied within just hours, when a failure occurs.
Routine maintenance helps to ensure best performance and working life of industrial gearboxes and help cut costs and downtime. Periodic visual inspections of gearboxes looking for oil leaks on the input and output shafts, and discolouration of the paint that might indicate overheating helps in early detection of problems in the gearbox. Also check for excessive vibration. As gearboxes operate in dirty, dusty environments it is necessary to keep them clean to avoid the potential ingress of contaminants into the unit and aid visual inspections. Dust and dirt covering a gearbox can also contribute to overheating so brush them clean regularly. Routine lubrication as per manufacturer’s specifications is crucial. Monitor the gearbox temperature as it will lead to problems. Keep the breathers clean and free of debris.

Gears are used to transfer motion and torque between machine components in mechanical devices. Depending on the design and construction of the gear pair employed, gears can change the direction of movement and/or increase the output speed or torque.
Gearboxes are also used as speed reducers to slow the rotational speed from the incoming motor to the outgoing fan of a cooling tower. Companies that operate high-capacity production plants, such as those in the chemical process and power industries, require cooling towers with large amounts of heat rejection capacity. Cooling Tower demands different operational requirements from a Gearbox.
A cooling tower is a heat rejection device, which extracts waste heat to the atmosphere through the cooling of a water stream to a lower temperature.
Amarillo Gear Company’s cooling tower gearboxes and drive shafts have design features and ratings that ensure reliability and long life in the demanding environment of a cooling tower. Amarillo Gear driveshafts are custom manufactured and engineered for specific applications to achieve optimum performance.
