The main aim of the transmission industry now is at increasing power density, reducing gear noise and improving energy efficiency levels in gear boxes which means gears will have tighter tolerances, higher profile accuracy and improved surface finish.
Gear manufacturing is a highly skilled and critical machining process and requires application expertise and sophisticated tools & machines. Gears are an integral part of any machines Gears are used in all industries from automobile, ships, locomotives, machine Tools, aerospace, general Eng., medical devices to material handling equipment and so on. .
Gear is an integral part of many industrial products. Gears have a wide range of application in diverse industries such as Automobile, Machine Tools, Aerospace, General Engg. and so on. Manufacturers are now increasingly seeking machine tools and technology for better productivity and quality of gears for that can meet their requirements as there is a growing demand.
The customer expects improved performance, cheaper cost, light weight, better efficiency, minimal noise, and rapid development. The technology of Gear manufacturing has evolved over the years from the traditional gears made by casting and forging to plastic gears,. With a combination of innovative manufacturing technologies and superior materials Gear manufacturing process have become more simple and productive.
Spur gears transfer rotary motion between parallel shafts having straight teeth which are parallel to the shaft on which the gear is mounted. Spur gears are simple in design and manufacture due to their structure. There they are used for a wide array of applications.
Helical gears transmit rotary motion between crossed or parallel shafts having gear teeth that are inclined at an angle to the gear axis. As they have an Inclined angle, there are two or more teeth are always in contact with each other during gear rotation and working.
These Gears have helical angled teeth in opposition to each other. That means one is Left handed and the opposing side is Right handed helix angle. Often the both helical angled gears have a small gap in the middle to facilitate gear hobbing operation.
Double helical gears have double the contact gear tooth area compared to single helical gears and hence have more load and power transmitting abilities operating at low noise levels and high speeds.
Places where large speed reductions are needed Worm gears are usually used. The reduction ratio is determined by the number of starts of the worm and number of teeth on the worm gear. Worm gears have sliding contact which is quiet but tends to produce heat and have relatively low transmission efficiency.
Worms and worm gears offer high gear reduction and torque multiplication. A worm drive is a cylindrical gear with a shallow spiral thread that engages the worm gear in a non-intersecting, perpendicular axes configuration.
All types of industrial and household machines use Speed reducers. They are used to reduce the speed of an electric motor safely and efficiently by adjusting the motor’s speed in order to provide the torque needed by a machine to work properly.
As a transmission system, speed reducer gearboxes stand out due to their high complexity, with a myriad of speed reducer system designs available depending on the needs and specifications of each application.
There are different types of speed reducers like Planetary, Spur and Helical. Due to its great precision and reliability, many automatic transmissions nowadays use planetary type of speed reducer.
