|The male configuration (cylindrical or splined) is used where side or axial
loads are acting upon the output shaft. The female configuration is used to
transmit purely torque and is employed where space is limited. The flange
mounted gearboxes are supported by a wide range of accessories. These include: adaptors for electric and hydraulic motors, multidisc failsafe brakes and male input shaft configurations.
A design which integrates mounting feet into the gearbox housing means that Brevini's range of in-line and right angle gearboxes offer advantages in terms of high levels of operating stiffness and rigidity.
The use of tapered roller bearings in the construction of these compact high efficiency gearbox units adds to their robust performances, by allowing axial and side loads to be tolerated on their keyed cylindrical output shafts. The provision for foot mounting means that this range is particularly suitable for industrial applications. This suitability is enhanced by a wide range of accessories, including adaptors for electric and hydraulic.
The "S Series" is the optimum proposal for all applications requiring high
torque with minimum dimensions, on fixed industrial equipment and also selfpropelled machines. This epicyclic solution is preferable to solutions with traditional gear units as it offers an improvement of 40-60% in terms of space and weight.
With its many output versions, numerous input possibilities and all the
accessories supplied, the "S Series" extends the application possibilities of Brevini epicyclic gear units to all industrial sectors: mixers for any type of material, extruders, all types of conveyors belts, industrial and port lifting equipment, grinders and mills, machines for working sheet and rod, large iron-making plants, sugar and food oil production plants, plants for quarries and mines, purification plants.
Brevini's in-line or right angle planetary gearboxes can be used in a wide
range of industrial equipment and mobile applications. They are based upon a flexible modular system and are available with either male or female output.
