The entire industrial processes are based on machinery that draws power and causes some of the internal components to move at a particular speed and the product is created with certain operations. One of the most essential components that is directly related to the speed and torque of motors is the gearbox. This small component is in fact the true workhouse of the entire industry. The rotations per minute or you may call it the speed of the motor directly affects the torque. The gears in a gearbox are the controllers of the torque to speed ration which is quite critical and vary as per the industrial applications.
Depending on the type of industrial applications i.e. low-speed and high-speed, gearboxes are of different types. These types bear difference in the teeth alignment. When considering low-speed applications, the teeth are in a straight manner and the overall efficiency of the system is low. On the other hand, when high-speed applications are considered, the teeth are present in a helical shape and the efficiency is higher as compared to the ones with straight teeth. There are a number of advantages of deployment of gearboxes in an industrial environment. These include reduced noise of motors, increase or decrease in the output torque, change in the speed and increased process durability.
Gearboxes are quite a critical component of your industrial process and often face some of the troubles that include damage due to high temperature of operation or overload, failure of shaft rotation due to worn out gear teeth and too much noise generated due to improper installation or lack of lubrication. The general cost of a single gearbox is rather expensive. So, if damage occurs, it is not considered to get the system replaced with a new one. This is where business enterprises feel the need for predictive maintenance experts who can check and monitor their industrial channel well in advance and prevent any potential damages from taking place.
