Gears are responsible for transferring the magnitude and/or direction of rotary motion and torque. In machine elements, gears are categorised as transmission or conversion elements. There are different types of gears depending on their task. Wheel gears such as gear drives, friction gears and traction gears are uniformly translating gears.
The GL 410 unit provides an introduction to the fundamentals of gear engineering. The unit focuses in particular on the practical assembly of gear components.
The exercise system can be used to configure six different, simple gear types. The setup of the components is flexible so that you can configure your own ideas and try out different gears.
Individual activities such as understanding the task and reading the drawing, assembling the components, adjusting, calibrating and checking the gear, and performing calculations are performed one after the other. The unit is driven by a hand crank. Various bearings and a solid frame made of square steel tubesensures sufficient accuracy to be able to set precise tooth interlocking. All components of the exercise system are ready at hand and securely housed in a storage system.
GUNT offers three assembly kits in this product range: from simple gears (GL 410) to combined gears (GL 420) and control gears (GL 430). Each assembly kit can be used completely independently of the other parts in the range.
