Large Gear Reducer
Large Gear Reducer: Performance Verified
Cincinnati Gear, Cincinnati, Ohio - The United States Navy required verification of performance specifications on large-scale speed reducers to be incorporated into a new ship propulsion system. But how to measure dynamic torque on the 24" diameter output shafts?
Binsfeld's telemetry systems and Vishay strain gages were selected as the only viable options for the large diameter shafts based on versatility and reliability. Installed without machine disassembly, at a fraction of the cost of sliprings, the telemetry conveniently transmitted live torque data, verifying that the large reducer performed as specified.
