Component and Types of Gearbox Reducer
The different designs and specifications of gearboxes make it possible to choose one according to your industry requirements. Today you can learn the components and types of gearbox reducer from this article.
Component of Gearbox Reducer
Main shaft is the output shaft in a gearbox. This shaft is kept parallel to the lay shaft and in front of the clutch shaft or engine output shaft. The gears are changed using this shaft because it is connected to the gear lever
This shaft is used to carry the output from the engine to the gearbox. It helps to engage and disengage the engine output.
The lay shaft is used to transfer the output of the engine to the main shaft by the continuous meshing of a gear on the lay shaft to the gear on the clutch shaft.
Gears are basically connecting circles with teeth on them. They rotate and meshes with another gear on the different shaft so as to transmit the circular motion between 2 different shafts. There are different types of gear such as –spur gear, helical gear, bevel gear and worm gear.
They are the special devices used in modern gearbox (synchromesh gearbox) .They make the shifting of gears smooth by maintaining same speed of main shaft, lay shaft and clutch-shaft. They don’t have to slide over the shaft for the shifting of the gear.
This lever is operated by the driver to change or shift the gear. The movement of the lever is designed in a specific manner.
Different Types of Gearbox Reducer
The gearbox is an essential component of machines used in various industries and fields. The purpose of gearboxes is to increase the output torque or to change the speed (RPM) of a motor. Gearboxes are used in agricultural, industrial, construction, mining, and automotive equipment and are available in different designs and specifications. In this article, we will take a closer look at different types of gearboxes and their main features.
