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 Micro-Measurements 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.
