[7] established a single degree-of-freedom hypoid gear pair dynamic equation, which included the time-varying stiffness, transmission error, and backlash, and obtained the FFT responses.
Gear types include spiral bevel gears, spur gears, worm gears, helical gears and hypoid gears.
The 279-feet-long research vessel appeared in the 1976 movie King Kong because of its hypoid propulsion drive at that time, which allowed it to move sideways.
At Bauma 2016, MAN will launch a new light hypoid tandem axle unit for payload-sensitive transport tasks which compared to fitting a planetary axle, weighs in approximately 280kg lighter, and compared to the normal hypoid axles currently available with a 13t load capacity, achieves a weight advantage of 180kg.
* More efficient than worm gearboxes as a result of hardened hypoid gearing
Each model features enhanced efficiency from hypoid or helical gearing, which leads to greater torque output and allows for smaller motors to aid in energy efficiency.
The system included a power transfer unit (PTU), linked to the transmission's final drive differential, containing a synchroniser and brake to disconnect the all-wheel drive system upstream of the PTU hypoid gears.
