The standard for spur gear systems developed by Eisenbeiss is used for various applications and is adapted to the exact requirements of each situation. While all these applications require durable, easy-to-maintain gear systems with a satisfactory price/performance ratio, they differ especially in the way they are implemented. While many applications (e.g. strip processing line bridle drives) involve non-stop operation where thermal management is an issue, there are also applications where considerable loads are imposed at a standstill, or repeated brief phases of operation are typical and the gear system can cool down again between these (e.g. drives for strip accumulators or crane travel mechanisms).
Using specially adapted gear mesh geometries and customised lubrication systems, the optimum system in terms of durability, operational safety and service-friendliness can be implemented for a wide range of applications.
Thanks to special efficiency optimisations, the power losses in Eisenbeiss spur gear systems are reduced to a minimum. As a result of this, there is only negligible temperature increase and no additional cooling is necessary even for high outputs.
