We are the leading manufacturer of the shaft mounted planetary gearbox
Top gear offers wide range of Shaft mounted planetary drive in two different variants. First , Inline planetary drive with rigid coupling for its intended use in various application, and second, combination of planetary and spur gearing with hollow output shaft suitable for various applications like sugar & chemical industries where motor and output shaft are off-centre.
The sugar industry has sugar cane crushing mill with 2 or 3 rollers and these rollers are driven by single or multiple gearbox called as Mill drive Gearbox
A mill gearbox has got typical shaft end which is Square in shape to connect a coupling to drive rollers. Milldrie gearbox consists of forced lubrication system.
Earlier in sugar industries mills were driven by a gas turbine which is connected to mill roller with two different helical gearboxes and open gearing. This type of conventional arrangement resulted into huge efficiency and power losses. After an innovation planetary gearboxes resulted into less efficiency loss and reduced power consumption.
A Foot mounted milldrive is a single gearbox that drives three rollers which are connected with each others with the help of pinions. Whereas, in case of shaft mounted mill drive the gearbox is directly mounted on individual rollers which eliminates the need of in between pinions.
