Power Rating of Single and Double Helical Gearing for Rolling Mill Service (Metric Edition)
|Publication Date:||23 September 2013|
This Standard provides a method for determining the power rating of gear sets used in main mill drives, pinion stands, and combination units used for the reduction of material size in metal rolling mills. Applications include, but are not limited to, hot mills and cold mills, roughing and finishing stands: reducing, increasing, and 1:1 ratio sets. Auxiliary drives, including drives listed in ANSI/AGMA 6113-A06, such as bridles, coilers, uncoilers, edge trimmers, flatteners, loopers (accumulators), pinch rolls, scrap choppers, shears, and slitters are not covered by this document. This standard includes a method by which different gear tooth designs can be rated and compared at extended life cycles typical for these applications, up to 175 000 hours.
