Gearbox is a gear system that changes the speed-torque ratio of a rotational movement with the help of gears. It is an element of parallel gear trains of gear wheel assemblies with gearboxes. Structurally, reducers are systems consisting of parts such as gear wheels, shafts, bearings placed in the body.

Purpose of Gearboxes

To transmit motion and power between shafts in various positions, obtaining various directions of rotation, Achieving a large conversion rate in a small volume, To provide independence in terms of motion between these two elements in systems consisting of two rotated elements.

Important Variables in Gearboxes

As in all gear systems, rotational direction is also important along with the rotation ratio in gearboxes. In this respect, the (-) sign is shown when the rotational directions of the rotating and rotated elements are opposite to each other, and the (+) sign when they are in the same direction. In gearboxes, the number of teeth of any gear that makes up the system affects the conversion rate. This rule applies to all parallel gear trains. If a mechanism consisting of two gears is considered as an individual, the number of mechanisms that make up the reducer shows how many times the speed changes, that is, the steps of the reducer.
