Practice makes perfect
The new SEW-EURODRIVE teaching kit for gear unit technology is specially designed to promote practice-based training at schools, universities, colleges or in the workplace.23 May 2018
"Driving the world" - true to its slogan, SEW-EURODRIVE supplies innovative drive solutions used in virtually every industry throughout the world. Of course, maintaining a leading position on the global market depends on having a highly skilled, competitive workforce. Future-focused companies clearly need to proactively tackle the looming shortage of specialist staff and not rely solely on state-funded education initiatives. And the best training results are achieved through varied content and a good balance of theory and practice. Showcased at HANNOVER MESSE 2018, the new SEW-EURODRIVE teaching aid for planetary gear technology is specially designed to teach practical skills.
This latest offering from SEW-EURODRIVE adds another high-quality module to its existing didactics portfolio for R, K and S gear unit series. The kit consists of a PSC 521/522-series planetary gear unit that can be assembled as a 2- or 3-stage system, with i=5 for the 2-stage assembly and i=25 for the 3-stage version. A hand crank is fitted via a modified ECH05 flange to demonstrate the gear unit in action. Meanwhile, two acrylic glass ring gears provide a clear view of the sun gear and planet gears inside the unit, which is normally closed off. Available only directly from SEW-EURODRIVE (email@example.com), the teaching kit comes with everything required to get the gear unit up and running – housing components, gear wheels, output shaft, ball bearings, assembly aids and tools.
