Standard for Industrial Enclosed Gear Drives (Metric Edition)
|Publication Date:||5 April 2016|
This standard is applicable to enclosed gear drives including configurations of parallel, concentric, and right angle shafts. It includes foot mounted, shaft mounted, screw conveyor drives, and gearmotors. These enclosed drives utilize spur, helical, herringbone, double helical, or bevel gearing in single or multiple stages. Bevel gear drives may include shaft angles other than 90 degrees.
This standard is applicable to gear drives having single or multiple stage gearing with pitch line velocities not exceeding 35 m/s for spur, helical, and spiral bevel gearing and 30 m/s for straight bevel, and shaft speeds not exceeding 4500 rpm for helical, spur, straight bevel, and spiral bevel gearing.
This standard does not cover epicyclic or crossed-helical gear drives. This standard does not cover the rating of spur, helical, or bevel gears due to wear or scuffing. The design and rating of the electric motor is beyond the scope of this standard. This standard does not apply to gear drives that are covered by other specific AGMA application standards.
For gear drives using wormgears, the design parameters shall be in accordance with the methods and procedures of ANSI/AGMA 6135-A02 for double enveloping wormgears and ANSI/AGMA 6034-B92 for cylindrical wormgears. Refer to Annex I for more details.
