BS Type Bevel Gearboxes

What are BS Type Bevel Gearboxes?

Bevel gearboxes stand as a cornerstone in the makeup of linear and rotary components, playing a pivotal role in transmitting power through right angles between non-parallel shafts.

These simple marvels of engineering are defined by their distinctive shape, either L-shaped (right angle) or T-shaped and are equipped with bevelled gears crafted from robust stainless steel. Enclosed within a sturdy aluminium shell, these gears are designed to facilitate the seamless interaction of perpendicular shafts, especially when used with flexible couplings to ensure a high-efficiency transfer of motion and power across various applications.

How Bevel Gearboxes Work.

The operational genius of bevel gearboxes lies in their ability to adeptly convert and direct input to output power at a 90-degree intersection, enabling torque and rotational speed adjustments through available gear ratios of 1:1 or 1:2.

This adaptability is crucial across a spectrum of industries, ranging from automation and robotics, where precision and space economy are non-negotiable, to aerospace and automotive sectors, demanding unwavering reliability and compactness.

Bevel gearboxes, when installed, not only achieve a precise directional change of drive motion but can do so with either a single output (L shape) or dual output (T shape).

Material Composition.

Our bevel gearboxes are constructed from an anodised aluminium shell and stainless steel gears, a choice of materials that reflect our commitment to durability and performance.

Aluminium, known for its lightweight yet strong characteristics, provides an ideal housing that supports operational integrity without adding unnecessary weight.

Stainless steel gears and shafts, celebrated for their resistance to wear and corrosion, ensure the gearbox's longevity and consistent output, making them an indispensable component in environments where performance cannot be compromised.

Sizes and Types Available.

Accu offers bevel gearboxes in a variety of sizes and configurations to meet your diverse project requirements. With shaft diameters ranging from the delicate 3mm to the more robust 12mm and gear ratios of 1:1 or 1:2, our gearboxes are engineered to fine-tune torque and speed.

The added availability of L-shaped or T-shaped designs allows freedom within your project to supply either one or two outputs. 

Finally, our BS type gearboxes come equipped with sealed ball bearings that act as a barrier for ingress, underscoring our commitment to versatility and performance. 

FAQs.

Q: What are BS type gearboxes?.

A: BS type gearboxes are distinguished by their use of ball bearings to anchor the gear axles firmly in place. This design choice ensures a smoother operation, facilitates higher operational speeds, and extends the lifespan of the gearbox compared to its BE type counterparts, which employ plain bearings or bushings.

Q: How do I select the right bevel gearbox for my project?.

A: Selection should be based on shaft diameter, desired gear ratio, and the specific requirements of your application, including space limitations and performance expectations. Our range includes options for various sizes, materials, and configurations, ensuring you find the perfect match for your engineering needs. For tailored advice, our expert team is always on hand to assist.

Q: What is the installation process for bevel gearboxes?.

A: Our bevel gearboxes offer an easy installation process, featuring 5 (L shape) or 6 (T shape) counter-bored holes directly through the gearbox body for secure fastening with cap head screws. Additionally, they can be mounted on studs or tapped with a thread to eliminate the necessity for extra nuts, simplifying the assembly.

Q: What maintenance is required for bevel gearboxes?.

A: Bevel gearboxes are designed for durability and low maintenance. Regular inspections and lubrication, according to the operational environment and usage frequency, will ensure optimal performance and longevity. Our BS type bevel gearboxes come with sealed ball bearings, minimizing the need for maintenance and providing a smoother operation over time.
