Conveyor Gearbox

A conveyor gearbox is the heart of any conveyance system. Conveyor belt systems are the most used method of moving a substantial amount of goods. The gearbox is the center of the conveyor system that pulls the various belts, chains, and rollers to move the products. Therefore, if the gearbox fails, the entire system fails. 

Gearboxes are made use of to alter the rate as well as torque of motors. many types of gearbox including:

right angle gearbox

helical gearbox

industrial gearbox

parallel shaft gearbox

conveyor gearbox

cycloidal gearbox

extruder gearbox

Industrial gearboxes are used as reducers to reduce the speed of conveyor belts by adjusting engine torque. The worm gear is the main component of the gearbox. It uses screws to turn gears. Although this technology was invented in ancient times, it has been optimized over the past 100 years to perform various industrial tasks.

In addition to speed control, the gearbox can also help you extend the life of your equipment and improve performance. They can also be used for torque multiplication.

The double-envelope worm gear has special shaped gear teeth, so it can provide greater torque. This design can increase the surface area contact between the worm gear and the output gear. They also have enlarged contact lines to increase power and reduce stress on the gear teeth.

Many industries use reducers and industrial gearboxes. They are usually found in conveyor belt systems, mining machinery and heavy construction equipment. Companies engaged in steel production, metal cutting and forming, paper and plastic processing, and printing and packaging also use industrial gearboxes.

The reducer obtains power from the conveyor motor through its input shaft. The gearbox converts speed into torque (and vice versa) and transmits this load to the conveyor belt through its output shaft.

The number, the size, the plans as well as variety of teeth of the gears utilized in a gearbox are the factor that are affecting the exit rate as well as torque modification of the motors. For example; a motor that has a gearbox with a reduction ratio of 100:1 has a 100 times reduced speed as well as 100 times boosted torque. The quality of the gears in the gearboxes are very important for the lifetime of the gearbox. The teeth of the gears may be deteriorated within time. To decrease the erosion the gears need to be oiled occasionally.
