Heavy Duty Gearbox
Heavy Duty Industrial
Herringbone gear is an important part of the mechanical transmission system. with the advantages of high transmission power, high reliability. high precision and strong load-bearing capacity. plays an important role in aerospace, shipping and other heavy machinery fields.
A herringbone gear, a special type of double helical gear. It is a special type of gear that is a side-to-side combination of two opposing hand helical gears. When viewed from the top, each helical groove of this gear looks like the letter V. and many together form a herringbone pattern (like the bones of fish such as herring). Unlike helical gears, herringbone gears do not generate additional axial loads.
Like helical gears, they have the advantage of transmitting power smoothly. because more than two teeth mesh at any one time. Their advantage over helical gears is that half of the lateral thrust is balanced by the other half of the lateral thrust. This means that herringbone gears can be used in torque gearboxes without the need for a large number of thrust bearings.
Herringbone gears are generally external mesh involute herringbone cylindrical gear reducers, mainly used in heavy-duty, highly reliable equipment, such as steam turbines.
Compared with helical gears, herringbone and double helical gears have the advantage of balancing axial thrust in both directions. Therefore, they are used in industries with high load capacity requirements, such as differential gears and heavy machinery, metallurgy, mining, cement building material machinery, etc.
KONIC produced gearbox is the application for Tugboats, ice breakers, dredgers, and firefighting vessels as marine gearbox .and winch can split main engine power to perform critical operations while maintaining accurate positioning and slow-speed maneuverability.
