Benzler Series BS Compact Worm Gear

December 4, 2015

When an engineer tilts his head at the notion of designing gearing solutions that can adapt to fit numerous industrial applications, you know that something special is coming. The Benzler series BS compact worm gear package represents an elegant solution to this adaptive scenario, one where power and torque meet at a point of convergence as the toothed wheel meshes with a threaded rod. It's a configuration that naturally twists output orientation ninety degrees, but orientation aptitude represents the merest fraction of the product's capabilities.

The symmetrical profile of the Benzler series BS compact worm gear family is made from aluminium, a metal that delivers a lightweight form. On allying this build with the condensed outline of the device, potential clients are gaining access to a gearing solution that possesses powerful torque translation capabilities. The cast tinbronze build of the wheel interacts directly with the case hardened worm gear, a screw-like component that sits on dual bearings to ensure superior isolation from transient forces and a smoother drive experience. Positioned as a high-end industrial torque translator, the unit slips into place within diverse drive chain systems to converts high velocity input values into lower speeds and an increased torque output. Again, the versatility of the product takes this core principle much further, swapping variables to create bountiful power transmitting options.

The range of productive extras available for installation in the Benzler series BS compact worm gear series could occupy one whole chapter, which just isn't feasible when we're targeting succinct content. Let's just say that the three-part arrangement is compact and powerful due to the reduced arrangement of the toothed gear and its accompanying partner in crime, the cylindrical worm gear. The two parts are dissimilar in shape, with one accessing radial characteristics while the other opts for linear properties, but smart engineering know-how employs key geometrical features, which, in this case, equals the reduced diameter of the lengthened cylinder and the tooth count on the wheel section. The upshot of this partnership is, of course, a dramatic upswing in velocity-to-torque conversion.

Finally, knowing the engineering principles that lay at the core of the gearing unit, we arrive at the construction and configurations of the product. A third component, a motor, connects to the gears to improve starting characteristics and lend the arrangement a snappy performance feature. Soft start and elastic coupling features widen the operating characteristics further. Versatility increases exponentially from this point as we look at differing application scenarios and alternate housing forms. Flanged options sit comfortably with mounting variations. Different motor types accompany gearbox changes and hollow shaft variants. And, finally, the worm gear motor amplifies these exceptional power transmitting characteristics, adding muscle to efficient torque manipulation.
