Custom Gearbox – Mining Application
A request came into Rj Link from a company that was upgrading their people moving cars for a mining application. The existing gearbox presented the following problems:
Gearbox was unable to handle the rigorous requirements of carrying a certain amount of weight in and out of the mines
Gearbox was underrated and underdesigned to meet the system requirements
Gearbox could not survive the life requirements for the application
When changing to some of the new components, some of the space constraints were already determined, therefore the configuration forced the customer to change how the driveline components would be made.
Rj Link’s engineering team designed a right angle gearbox that would meet the requirements of the new transmission. The new design options will help the customer meet the life requirements required in the application.
