The Unit to Study the Alignment of Drives, Shafts and Gears, "ADSG", allows for checking the operation with:
- CGA. Combined Gear Assembly Unit.
- SGA. Spur Gear Assembly Unit.
- SJBA. Unit to Study a Shaft with Journal Bearings Assembly.
Any of the elements included in those three units will be correctly mounted in this unit in order to align the elements, mount the system and check the operation. Heat generation, vibrations during operation and possible leaks can also be assessed.
The unit includes a rigid bench with aluminum profile. The single-phase asynchronous drive motor with metal bellows coupling and the driving element to be checked are located on that bench.
It is possible to change the mounting space, by adapting it to the size of the drive element. It also has a magnetic particle brake with adjustable braking torque regulated by a potentiometer.
The drive element is coupled to the motor and the brake through two couplings protected by removable guards. The objective of the student will be to perform the element-brake and element-motor alignments.
The excitation current of the magnetic brake, indicated in a display, is used to measure the braking torque. The magnetic brake includesa fan.
The Unit to Study the Alignment of Drives, Shafts and Gears, "ADSG", allows for studying the coupling and uncoupling, maintenance and repair of the related units.
