Counter-Rotating Gearboxes

Counter-Rotating Gearboxes have a T-style design with two output shafts on the same axis and one input shaft at 90° from both outputs. Counter-Rotating Gearboxes are unique in that the two output shafts rotate in opposite directions simultaneously, which creates an ideal counterbalance. A counterbalanced rotating gearbox helps offset vibrations and provides additional stability in mechanical drive systems.
Use Right-Angle Gearboxes in any power transmission application where you wish to improve load efficiency and reduce wear on mechanical components. Additional benefits of gearboxes include higher outputs and performance and smoother operation. The Crown design allows for changes in axis rotation along with minimal backlash.
