The gearbox reduces the reflected load inertia by the square of the gear ratio, so adding a gearbox can significantly improve the system's inertia ratio. In terms of machinery, a gear reducer is a mechanical transmission that can connect a motor to a driven load, also known as a gearbox. It allows the user to modify the torque and speed between the motor and the load. The reduction gear assembly consists of a series of gears. A gear reducer is a mechanical device that is used to increase or decrease torque through a decrease or increase in speed. It consists of two or more gears, one of which is driven by the motor unit. The output speed of the gear reducer will be inversely proportional to the gear ratio.
The most widely known use of gear reducers is as a transmission device in the automotive industry, used between the output shaft of the engine and the final drive, in order to transmit the expected or required torque and power to the wheels of the vehicle. The automobile is just one example. Gear reducers can be used in many fields.
The gear reducer is composed of gear sets. The gear types can be spur gears, helical gears, bevel gears, worm gears and epicycle gears. The type of gear used must be determined according to the type of gearbox used in the field operation. The gear sets are arranged in a special way to form the desired gearbox and speed, such as a five-speed gearbox with reverse gear and an automatic gearbox.
Inside the gearbox, the transmission mechanism is a physical process in the machine equipment. In this machine, the power transmission system provides controlled application of power. In general, the term "five-speed gearbox" refers only to gearboxes that use gears and gear trains, depending on the operating conditions, to provide speed and torque conversion from a rotating power source to other single or multiple devices.
In the market, the most common use of gearboxes is in automotive engineering in the automotive industry. The gearbox transmission adapts the output of the internal combustion engine to drive the wheels. The engine needs to run at a relatively high speed, which is not suitable for starting, stopping and slow running. Meanwhile, the gearbox reduces the higher engine speed to a lower wheel speed, thereby increasing torque during operation.
This transmission system is widely used due to its wide applicability. Gearboxes are also used on other applications, such as bicycles and machineries, and use different speeds and torques to handle motor force and strength. In addition to these uses, the metal processing, plastic and rubber machinery industries also need to use gearboxes to control the strength of the machine's output motor. In plastic injection machines, gear reducers are used to help load the mixture of resin and other ingredients into the hopper, so that they are well mixed together in the form of fluid and injected into the mold. All in all, its application range is quite wide.
In industrial applications, right angle gear reducers can optimize speed and performance through specific designs, and can extend the service life of important equipment. This is because the motor can transmit power to the input shaft of the reducer during operation of the equipment. All components of the right angle gear reducer are important and are manufactured to precise standards to ensure the good operation of the gears and the final output.
Many precision gear reducers reduce the reflected load inertia to achieve a higher response while increasing the torque output of the servo system. This effect is very good. Therefore, they can provide high rigidity, high efficiency and very quiet running for automated manufacturing processes in the industrial sector. With a right angle design, this type of reducer is competitive in the market and can compete with many advanced gearbox units.
