T.E.A. Transmissions presents a new line of compact angular gears by
Ketterer. The new Ket-Bee 200X series combines high-performing mechanics in the
smallest possible installation space with easy power transmission, an extended
service lifecycle and a positive price-performance ratio.
The leg length in the most compact of the new angular gears is shorter
than a matchstick. Available in seven sizes, featuring legs from 32mm to 60mm in
length, the angular gear meets many needs in installation, assembly and
automation engineering. Potential areas of application include shading and
building engineering, as well as mechanical engineering.
In principle, the gear can be used for any deflection of a linear
movement as well as for swivel motions. The angular gears can be deployed in
plant construction or handling systems, for instance, driving conveyor belts,
adjusting the width of conveyor belts or swivel arms and adjusting positioning
units and pallet systems. The Ket-Bee 200X is used in shading technology
applications to adjust slats and other shading elements.
According to Ketterer CEO Odin JâÂ§ger, the need for compact dimensions
meant they had to use appropriate materials and prioritise the gear teeth
quality. Therefore, even the most compact model with a leg length of 32mm x 32mm
can guarantee maximum torque.
The use of high quality materials including surface-hardened steel bevel
gears and ball bearings for input and output drive contributes to the Ket-Bee
200X’s long service life and high power density. This also makes the gears ideal
for withstanding the high stresses imposed by mechanical engineering. The
precision-manufactured steel bevel gears have a radial clearance of just
3¡ (±1¡), allowing the gear to operate virtually noiselessly in addition
to reducing wear and maintenance. The gear ratio is 1 for all versions: 1,
with torques and a power spectrum – depending on size – ranging from 0.1 to
Ketterer also offers standardised interfaces, enabling positive power
transmission via feather key and a uniform hole pattern for mounting.
