The AGMA Helical Enclosed Drives High Speed Units Committee recently completed the development of the new standard ANSI/AGMA 6011-J14, Specification for High Speed Helical Gear Units.
The new standard is a revision of ANSI/AGMA 6011-I03.
This standard includes design, lubrication, bearings, testing and rating for single and double helical external tooth, parallel shaft speed reducers or increasers. Units covered include those operating with at least one stage having a pitch line velocity equal to or greater than 35 meters per second or rotational speeds greater than 4500 rpm and other stages having pitch line velocities equal to or greater than 8 meters per second.
The new standard is available for purchase, in electronic format, on AGMA website, click on the “STANDARDS” button.
The AGMA Helical Enclosed Drives High Speed Units Committee wishes to thank all participants for their valuable contributions during the development of this new standard.
