A dual gearbox is a complete unit that has 2 complete gearboxes coupled together. (Do not confuse this with dual stage gearboxes). Dual gearboxes are utilised when 2, 3 or 4 sets of internal gears are not enough reduction for a slow turning output speed.
For applications that call for extremely large ratios, and low output speeds; the Genat and Wood™ dual gearboxes are able to provide an answer.
The Dual gearbox type: Ranging with input sizes from 0.37kw to 22kw with output speeds of 0.24 RPM to 11 RPM
There is also capabilities of adding a VSD or Variator (See Varmec VAR Variators) between the last gearhead and motor for more variation on slow speeds.
The Genat and Wood range of industrial dual gearboxes is known for its long service life and robust service factors leading to excellent power density. As a result, comparing with other gearheads out there, there is little comparison. Therefore, Amiga Engineering Pty Ltd can outperform many reputable companies with our overhung loads and service factors.
Cast iron exteriors and ground gears are essential for some environments.
