TechBlog #4 | The Influence of Bevel Pinion Retractability on Casing Design

Bevel gear stages have an influence on the requirements for the casing. In particular, the pinion must be capable of being inserted into the bevel gear stage. The ability of the pinion to be pulled out of the contact can be easily calculated in the FVA-Workbench.

Calculation of retractability in the design phase makes it possible to draw important conclusions on the design as well as the requirements for the gearbox environment (casing). If the pinion is not retractable in the initial bevel gear design, the design can be adapted until retractability is achieved. The FVA-Workbench can quickly and efficiently calculate the effectiveness of these changes.
