A parallel gear spindle features parallel gears to transmit power from the motor to the spindle shaft. The parallel gears are typically enclosed in specially designed housings for protection and lubrication. Also, the housing type is designed for the required application.
Parallel gear spindles are commonly used in machine tools that require high torque and low to medium speeds, such as lathes and gear-cutting machines. They offer high efficiency and can transmit power over long distances with minimal power loss. Parallel gear spindles can be designed for various machining applications, including milling, drilling, and grinding.
