A three stage gear box with twelve speeds is to be designed based on R10 s1eries with a
minimum spindle speed of 125 rpm. The electric motor is connected to the gear box through
a belt drive and runs at 1440 rpm and transmit power of 5 KW. Using standard spindle
speed,

Number of speed(z)=12

=1.26

## N1= Nmin =125 rpm

NM=1440 rpm
P= 5 Kw
The twelve speed is given by following
N1=125 rpm
N2=125*1.26=160 rpm
N3=160*1.26=200 rpm
N4=200*1.26=250 rpm
N5=250*1.26=315 rpm
N6=315*1.26=400 rpm
N7=400*1.26=500rpm
N8=500*1.26=630 rpm
N9=630*1.26=800 rpm

N10=800*1.26=1000 rpm
N11=1000*1.26=1250 rpm
N11=1260*1.26=1600 rpm
So begin with considering the preferred structure diagram as shown in figure

## For this structure diagram the maximum value of I g occurs in stage 3

Ig=

=4<8

This value is less than 8 and hence the structure diagram is suitable.
The speed diagram for the same has been shown in figure

From the above speed diagram, it can be seen that in stage 2 and 3 the speed reduction of the gear pair
would be maximum
The gear ratio would be
315/125=2.52

## which is less than 6

It is seen that the gear drive is used to connect the motor with the input shaft of the gear pair.
The motor speed was 1440 rpm whereas the input shaft from the speed diagram is 1600 rpm.

Thus, if the pulley connected to the motor has a diameter D M and that connected to the input shaft.
The gear box has diameter D1, then the pulley diameter would be in the ratio
D1/DM=NM/N1=1440/1600=0.9
The gear layout should be as shown in the figure

## The teeth on the gear for stage 1 can be calculated as under

Za/Za=Na/Na=1600/800=2
Zb/Zb=Nb/Nb=1600/1000=1.6
Za=2Za

Zb=1.6Zb
Za+Za=Zb=Zb
3Za = 2.6Zb
Za = 1.154 Zb

To determine the integer value of no of teeth on gear the table is shown below

## In the present case selecting gear with Za=19

It is seen that there is deviation in the gear ratio
Nb/Nb=1.59
Nb= 1600/1.59=1006.3 rpm
To determine the number of teeth on second stage the input speeds are 800 rpm and 1006.3 rpm
Zc/Zc=Nc/Nc=800/800=1
Zd/Zd=Nd/Nd=800/500=1.6
Ze/Ze=Ne/Ne=800/315=2.54

## The largest value in this case would be for gear e and e

To determine the number of teeth in the third stage, the input speeds are 314.3, 395.4, 500, 628.9, 800

Now for the third stage
Zf/Zf=Nf/Nf=314.3/500=0.629

A multi speed gear box is to be designed for a small m/c tool having speeds varying from 63
rpm to 630 rpm. The recommended series of speeds is R5 using the standard spindle speeds.
The gear box is connected to a motor by a pair of pulleys. Assuming the motor speed to be
1440 rpm, determine ratio of the pulleys diameter required. Draw a suitable structure diagram
and speed diagram and determine number of teeth on each gear.
GIVEN DATA
Nmax=630 rpm
Nmin=63 rpm
NM=1440 rpm
Preferred series =R5
=

5 10

=1.585

number of speeds=6
so the different speed of the m/c tool are given below
N1=63 rpm
N2=63*1.585=100 rpm
N4=158*1.585=250 rpm
N5=250*1.585=395 rpm
N6=395*1.585=630 rpm
Number of stages=2
The structure diagram is shown in the figure

Ig=

=2.51<8

## This value is less than 8, so this diagram of structure diagram is suitable.

The speed diagram for the same has been shown in the figure.

From the above speed diagram, it can be seen that in stage 1 and 2 the speed reduction of gear
pair would be maximum

## The gear ratio would be

100/63=1.587 which is less than 6
It is seen that the gear drive is used to connect the motor with the input shaft of the gear.
The motor speed was 1440 rpm whereas the input shaft from the speed diagram 630 rpm.
Di/D M=1440/630=2.285
The gear layout would be as shown in the figure

## The number of teeth on the gear can be calculated AS BELOW

Za/Za=Na/Na=630/158=3.98

Zb/Zb=Nb/Nb=630/250=2.52
Za+Za=Zb+Zb
Zb=1.417 Za

So from the above table the number of teeth on gear a is taken as 19 teeth.
For the number of teeth on second stage following procedure is given
Zc/Zc=Nc/Nc=250/100=2.5
Zd/Zd=Nd/Nd=250/158=1.585

There for the number of teeth to be taken for the gear c is 20.
