Brevini Power Transmission was established in 1960 by Renato, Luciano and Corrado Brevini. Today it is one of the world's top manufacturers of planetary gearboxes and power transmissions, thanks to its global presence in industrial applications (the iron and steel industry, mining, raw materials handling and logistics, and ship-building) and in innovative systems such as wind turbines, waste recycling plants, and energy production.

Stirrer - Mixer - Agitator - Reactor - ETP Plant - Needer - Others

In 1993 the company obtained ISO 9001 certification, which stands for quality assurance in design, development, production, installation and servicing. In order to achieve these result, Brevini makes use of advanced techniques. Sophisticated CAD/CAM systems have been combined with the over thirty years of experience of highly qualified engineers and technicians and with the know-how acquired through constant up-dating of the technologies used.

Each phase of production is characterized by continuous checks and tests carried out on the product: in-coming, in process and out-going. A particularly innovative system of self-control applied to the machines makes it possible to take corrective action automatically, and detectors linked to a network monitor the quality performance of the key processes.

The company is fully automated, and its ability to innovate and improve its production lines constantly is a basic prerequisite for the quality of its work.

But this quality-oriented culture reaches far beyond the limits of the factory, and permeates through out the whole corporate organization. This concept is materialized in the form of constant attention paid to out human resources, consisting of training activities and the involvement of the staff in the re-engineering of the production and organizational processes, with improvement groups, interfunction committees and a network-based organization of work.

The Planetary Gearbox System

Load is shared with 3 pairs of gear tooth Spur tooth = Axial and Radial Load component Free body diagram force resolution Planet gears placed 120 degrees Apart Resultant forces at center cancel one another Uniform balanced loading system Free floating sun pinion.

Generation of gearboxes

First Generation P1 = Open Gear Pairs
Second Generation P2 = Worm Gearboxes
Third Generation P3 = Helical Gearboxes
Fourth Generation P4 = Cycloidal / Planocentric
Fifth Generation P5 = Planetary Gearboxes
Planetary Configuration is the Latest in Gearbox Technology

Comparison of Gear Tooth Profiles as per DIN 868

Worm Gear 70 % Sliding Friction
Helical Gears 60 % Sliding Friction
Bevel Gears 40 % Sliding Friction
Planetary Spur Gears 30 % Sliding Friction
Sliding Friction » Rolling Friction
This explains power losses Is the Determinant of Gearbox Efficiency

Only external forces to be supported by the output support BECAUSE The internal forces of the planetary stage are equilirbrated. The output support is in charge of these external loads not affecting the planetary section  ADVANTAGES OF PLANETARY TECHNOLOGY The gearbox bearings are in charge of external and internal loads ADVANTAGES FOR THE CUSTOMER Very clear cut between analyses of the load and torque spectrum nHigh reduction ratio per stage BECAUSE  i=Zr/Zs + 1   ADVANTAGES OF PLANETARY TECHNOLOGY The ratio of a standard gear wheel combination i=Zr/Zs    ADVANTAGES FOR THE CUSTOMER Higher ratios achivevable per reduction.

Easy to modified as ratio composition, to add a planetary stage, to mount a failsafe rake etc.       BECAUSE OF    Modular system       ADVANTAGES OF PLANETARY TECHNOLOGY   The non modular system of the other types   of gearboxes make more rigid the overall configuration  ADVANTAGES FOR THE CUSTOMER More flexile product (also in term of motor mounting)

Planetary Versus Helical Gearbox

1/4 to 1/10 Reduced Weight and Reduced Volume Lower Mass Moment of Inertia of Rotating Parts Lower Starting and Stopping Torque  = Lower shock , Vibration and jerk Loads experienced Shorter Axis and internal gear force copensation = Higher Design Rigidty = Lower sensibility against shock loads Reduced expenses for mounting arrangements Maximum Reduction ratio in helical gearboxes i =630 compared  to planetary where standard i = 3,150  - 18,000 Helical gearbox noise from 85-95 db compared to 65 db at 1 mts Helical housing of Fabricated steel while SGI casing in Planetary.

Helix angle induces 3 load profile i.e Axial , Radial and Tangential that exerts transverse imbalanced load on central shaft axis requiring correction by Taper Roller Bearing Planetary Spur has 2 load profile i.e Axial & Radial which are placed 120 Degrees apart ensuring perfect alignment and load sharing where resultant forces cancell one another = uniform balanced loading system  Planetary spur gear makes lower length of arc of contact compared to helical gears = lower frictional & power losses = higher efficiences In planetary gearbox part of power transmitted is by coupling effect between input pinion and planet carrier this results in higher gearing efficiency as all the input power is not transmitted by gear meshing alone.
