Abstract The article presents a method for calculating and designing spherical roller gears with a double-row pinion. The studied gears are analogs of planetary gears with a double-wheel pinion. They make it possible to implement a wide range of gear ratios. The advantages of spherical roller gears include small dimensions, low material consumption, and layout properties. A special feature of the proposed calculation algorithm is the search for optimal geometric gears parameters according to the criteria of maximum efficiency coefficient taking into account maximum load capacity for a given maximum radial dimensions. The main criterion of strength is fatigue endurance. The method includes design and verification calculations. It makes it possible to develop the small-sized speed reducers for low-speed drives for various purposes.
Keywords spherical roller gear, spherical mechanism, kinematic scheme, force analysis, strength calculation, method of calculation and design
