Shaft Mounted Gearbox
Shaft Mounted Gearbox is rugged-designed gearboxes mounted directly on the driven shaft and have an increased power-to-weight ratio. Being compact in design, these are easily handled. Its increased bore sizes enable high efficiency and high performance. These gears can be installed quickly and provide high output speeds with high power requirements. Lubricated with the oil splash technique, the gears require low maintenance.
These gearboxes can handle maximum loading with hardened precision-machined alloy steel gears mounted perfectly on highly finished shafts supported on precision bearings. Sturdy support is provided by cast iron casing, which also ensures the proper alignment of the components. These gearboxes are widely used in various applications like oil refineries, food machinery, the paper industry, etc.
