High-Performance Parallel Twin Screw Extruder Gear Boxes

Cincinnati Milacron TP Series Parallel Twin Screw Extruders

Cincinnati Milacron, the leader in providing twin screw extrusion

technology, is proud to introduce the next generation in Parallel Twin
Screw Gear Boxes for its TP Series Parallel Twin Screw Extruders,
Torque Master
Master Direct from Eisenbeiss

Torque Master is established as the parallel counter-rotating twin screw

extruder gear box with the highest performance and load capacity in the

With the Torque Master Direct design, Eisenbeiss has succeeded in

integrating part of the reduction ratio between the motor and extruder
into the distribution system. By achieving this, the reducer gear box now
only requires two gear stages instead of the three gear stages in the
original Torque Master design. Furthermore, the reducer needs to bring
only approximately 42% of total torque and therefore can be designed
much smaller and more compact. Additionally, the parts in the
distribution gear box could be designed smaller by integrating a part of
the reduction ratio into the distribution system.

While having the same advantages as the original Torque Master

design, Torque Master Direct is much more cost effective in operation.
30% lighter with connecting dimensions more compact. The compact,
lighter overall design improves the footprint and versatility in the design
of the complete extruder. And, the gear box uses less oil, providing a
maintenance cost savings and also a savings for the environment.
Advantages of Torque Master Direct
 Torque Master principle preserved:
 4 intermeshing gears on the output side of the gear box
 2 gears on output shafts
 2 gears on distribution shafts
 A defined torque distribution on the output side
 A 40 to 70% improvement in performance compared to competitor systems
 While up to 30% of total torque has to be transferred in one gear stage with
competitive systems, Torque Master is down to 17.5%, increasing service
lifetime anywhere from 3 to 6 times over

Technical Features of Torque Master Direct

 Low radial forces in the distributor High bearing service lifetime; small
and inexpensive bearings
 Intermeshing output shafts No distortion between the output shafts
 Helical gearing for smooth operation and increased service lifetime for
tandem bearing
 Gear tip relief for smoother contact and silent operation
 Gear width correction to guarantee optimal load distribution along the
entire gear width under full torque
 Safeties on input stages are always higher than on output stages
 Combined splash lubrication and forced lubrication
 Tandem bearing from INA

Lubrication for Torque Master Direct

 Torque Master Direct is a 1-Oil Gear Box ! A single, higher viscosity gear
oil is best in relation to the gear box load limits Fewer gear stages,
compact design, reduced splashing
 460 viscosity class oil throughout, compared with original Torque Master
with 220 viscosity class oil in the reducer and 460 viscosity class oil in the
distributor for the 2-oil system
 Normally In the reducer, there are more losses due to splashing with high
viscosity oil, so a low viscosity oils is preferred. However, with Torque
Master Direct there is one less gear stage in the high speed reducer as
this ratio was added into the slower speed distributor
 The reducer components are more compact (compared to the original
Torque Master). Peripheral speed is about 25% lower in the first stage
and 33% lower in the second stage. End result is fewer losses from
