Creativity journey Refining problem Solution: Tools and resources Initial design Future consideration

Refining problems1To design a gearbox that raises at least 8kg 1 metre as fast as possible, as small as possible and that uses the least electrical power.

How can we lift?

How can we achieve this?By exploring a large array of gearing systems and choosing an appropriate solution that is efficient and effective.

Types of Gears Spur gearsWorm gearsBevel gearsHelical gearsEpicyclic gears

Spur gearsAdvantages:Easily producedReliable and efficientParallel to its axisDisadvantages:SlowTeeth stressCan only transfer power parallel shafts

Worm gearsAdvantages:Compact designMeshing efficientHigh ratios are achievable in single stepDisadvantages:Difficult to manufacturePotential for high power loss

Bevel gearsAdvantages:Different operating anglesScalableDisadvantages:Difficult to machineMust be precisely mounted

Helical gearsAdvantages:DurabilityLoad distributionCan transmit motion to either parallel and right angle shaftDisadvantages:Difficult to machine

Epicyclic gearsAdvantages:Compact designHigh power densityHigh efficiencyDisadvantages:No room for errorAccuracy essential for assure load sharingCan only transfer power parallel shafts
