Success Stories

Planetary Gearbox for Alumium Settler/Thickner Gearbox

Challenge

Earlier client was using imported planetary gearboxes which showed Recurring failure.

Solution

Top gear analyzed the problem and identified the root cause behind the failure of planetary gearboxes. Accordingly, Top Gear redesigned gearboxes with splined forged output shaft with nitriding and capable to withstand high torque. The planetary gearbox was designed in such a way that it exactly matched to existing mountings & with increased safety factor.

Result

Top gear replaced all the 24 Nos. of imported gearboxes. These gearboxes are running successfully for the last 8 to 10 years.

Review from client

It is very much difficult for us to get service & spares support from those earlier installed imported gearboxes which showed frequent problems. Top Gear has provided us with high quality of products which served as a better solution to match our requirements. Now we are getting proper support & service from top gear & our all gearboxes are performing well.

Hoist Planetray Gearbox For EOT Cranes

Challenge

The conventional hoist used by client was having helical open gearing which was bulky in design and required more space.

Solution

Top gear designed a special kind of gearbox for hoist drive. This gearbox is designed in such a way that it completely fits inside the drum and has output shaft splined. The shaft is being locked & drive to the drum is given by annulus. B5 mounted brake motor is mounted outside the drum on the flange. These gearboxes are supplied with long life synthetic lubricants.

Result

This resulted in Compact Gearbox solution which is economical and had high efficiency and improved life.

Review from client

The structural cost drastically reduced with compact planetary gearboxes. These Planetary gearboxes are more efficient & maintenance free. These gearboxes are best suitable for hoist application.

Planetary Gearbox For Construction Bar Bending Machines

Challenge

Client used the conventional gearbox with spur gearing for bar bending machine. These kind of gearboxes were bulky in size & gave various maintenance issues such as belt failure. This kind of gearbox required separate hub to mount on gearbox output shaft.

Solution

Top Gear designed special planetary gearbox with the hollow output shaft to which the bending wheel of machine is attached. This arrangement eliminated the need of other connecting parts resulting into simple construction. This kind of gearbox was offered with flange mounting for direct attachment of the motor to eliminate the belt pulley arrangement.

Result

Client got a simple solution for bar bending machine which was very easy to install and simple in construction. This gearbox increased the efficiency of bar bending machine and reduced the number of parts thereby reducing the cost. High torque was available due to utilization of this kind of gearbox.

Review from client

The efficiency of bar bending machines increased after utilization of planetary gearbox. Operational cost reduced due to less maintenance.
