Design and Justify a PT upgrade 8/4 WEBINAR

August 4 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

The 30-year-old gearbox “Old Faithful” is finally starting to show its age and needs to be replaced. Now is the time for a complete analysis of torque and speed, and the mechanical installation of your entire drive train. In this session we will look at where to start, and what other mechanical solutions could help justify the investment.  See how Rumsey recommends using a “back to formula” approach for replacement to extend the life of your asset – while making it more efficient and reliable.  With no drop-in replacements for many existing gearboxes, we will discuss how to survey the existing application, with the new requirements, to provide a total solution from engineered class chain and sprockets all the way through the drive train.

Specifically, we will:

  • Analyze the existing application and drive arrangement to gain a full understanding of the torque and speed requirements.
  • Understand operation changes being made that require changes to the base design.
  • Compare the geometry of the existing components to the new to make sure the upgrade does not include a complete re-design.
  • Make final selection of primary components and show how that drives selection of the ancillary components and project completion.

Following this webinar you should have gained an understanding of the process by which Rumsey engineers evaluate and upgrade a customer’s power transmission application.
