AGRICULTURAL TECHNOLOGY

Requirements:

In agricultural applications such as tractors, spiral bevel gears are built into the rear axles. Harvesters and hay machines use straight bevel gears to enable the corresponding functions. Whereas the bevel gear set in a tractor rear axle drive must transmit up to 250 kW, the loads on straight bevel gears are comparably low. During production, the same methods are used as for commercial vehicles. The most important market requirement for straight bevel gears is a modern production solution that is cost-efficient.

 

In farm machines, power is often transmitted by straight bevel gears.

Solution:

With Hypoflex, Klingelnberg has developed a unique, computer-aided production method for straight bevel gears. Now for the first time, straight bevel gears can be produced in a dry cutting process that is fully integrated into the closed-loop concept. This puts Hypoflex on par with the standard of gear-cutting technology used in the automotive industry.

 


Requirement:

Spiral bevel gears mounted on tractor axles vary in size from 200-600 mm pitch diameter, depending on the power rating of the equipment. In high end applications, the gear sets are even ground to derive additional load carrying capacity without having to increase the size of the gears.

Solution:

With Klingelnberg, agricultural segment benefits from the same ‘state of the art’ technology as available in the automotive sector. Oerlikon Spiral Bevel Gear Cutting Machine C 50 and Oerlikon Spiral Bevel Gear Grinding Machine G 60 are well equipped to meet all customer expectations pertaining to modern design, low space requirements and operator friendliness.
