Segmented girth gears
Traditional girth gears generally consist of two to four segments and are assembled together for processing. This requires extremely large and expensive machines for production, handling and heat treatment. Besides this, the size of component parts creates disadvantages with regard to casting quality and heat treatment.
The innovative girth gears from SEW-EURODRIVE are always divided into several identical segments. This means the component parts are short and easy to handle. By combining the latest materials engineering and state-of-the-art manufacturing methods, the SEW-EURODRIVE girth gears avoid the disadvantages of the traditional manufacturing process and create new benefits.
