All industrial transmission systems are expected to operate as consistently, productively, and cost-effectively as possible, regardless of their applications or industries. This is especially significant since gear units are utilized in nearly every industrial setting and are readily available in any configuration imaginable.
At Superior Gearbox Company, we manufacture industrial gearboxes and related items of the highest quality to support various transmission and distribution applications and systems. Moreover, our more than 30 years of experience have enhanced our standard product offering with customer-specific gear drives.
Industrial Gearboxes From Superior Gearbox Company
An industrial gearbox — also referred to as an industrial transmission system — transfers mechanical energy from one device to another and reduces speed while increasing torque. These transmissions can also alter their velocity and torque to convert energy into a more compatible format. Unlike mass gearboxes, industrial transmission systems can perform multiple tasks at extremely high speeds for extended periods.
Superior Gearbox Company provides industrial gearboxes with various configurations to meet our customers’ requirements. The following are the different types of gearboxes available and their most common applications:
Helical Industrial Gearbox
A helical industrial gearbox has angled teeth and long-lasting, low-maintenance units. Thus, it is significantly more compact than other transmission systems and utilizes less energy.
This gearbox is commonly used in industrial applications requiring faster speeds and torque or for a quieter operation. Due to its low rolling friction, it is also used in low-power implementations to achieve maximum efficiency.
Coaxial Helical Inline
A coaxial helical gearbox or an inline gearbox consists of parallel spur gears that rotate in the same or opposite direction. It offers optimal solutions for heavy-duty mechanical processes due to its high accuracy, excellent quality, and efficiency. Furthermore, it is typically used in conveyors, agitators, feeders, and cranes.
Bevel Helical Industrial Gearbox
A bevel helical industrial gearbox allows for rotation between non-parallel shafts. Inside the unit’s cone-shaped base are curved teeth that enable high-output torques. Additionally, it has a long service life and is suitable for high-power applications requiring exceptionally high output torque from whisper-quiet mechanisms.
Skew Bevel Helical Gearbox
The rigid structure of a skew bevel helical gearbox is suitable for heavy load applications, and the number of gears and teeth can be altered to meet particular requirements. In addition, its enormous structure can adjust speed and torque by boosting, decreasing, or inverting the number of rotations. Hence, the skew bevel helical gearbox is ideal for nearly every industrial application.
Worm Reduction Gearbox
A worm reduction gearbox consists of a large-diameter wheel that seamlessly blends with the gearbox’s edge teeth. The worm causes the wheel to rotate, similar to a screw as it turns. It is suitable for applications requiring greater speed reduction among crossed-axis shafts that do not intersect.
A planetary gearbox provides enhanced performance and a high torque-to-volume ratio, which increases torque, decreases speed, and provides precise positioning. Besides that, it regulates reproducible machinery and prolongs its lifespan. It is also utilized in vehicle transmission, mixing, pumps, medical scanners, and petrochemical applications.
