GEAR COUPLING

MANUAL
1. STRUCTURE

NR Gear coupling consists of the internal spur gears in its sleeves and the external spur gears

with crowened teeth on its hubs, both of which are in mesh when assembled.

NARA GEAR COUPLINGS

1. Sleeve A

2. Sleeve B

3. Two hubs

4. Reamer bolts sets

5. Lubrication plugs

6. Side 0 Rings

7. Center 0 Ring

■ CROWNED HUB TEETH (Pitch diameter on a curve type)

Since these spur gears are so designed as to employ an involute

tooth profile and to have a special form on the top and bottom

lands of their teeth, taking account of the tilting and lubrication,

and equal speed rotation and smooth power transmission can be

obtained even when a little tiltings occur between the sleeves and

the hubs

2. INSTA L L A TION

1. ASSEMBLING

(1) Ensure all parts are clean.

(2) Apply a light coat of grease to the 0 Rings and insert 0 Rings into grooves of sleeves.

(3) Place sleeves over shaft ends. Care should be taken not to damage 0 Rings.

(4) Install hub on their respective shafts with the longest hub end towards shaft end or to-

wards machine bearing depending on the type. Hub faces have to be flush with shaft end.

(5) Install units to be connected in place and check the spacing between hubs. See below

tabulation for correct hub spacing. (Table.1)

(6) Align the two shafts, check alignment using a dial gauge. (Fig.1) (Table.2)

(7) Coat hub and sleeve gearings with grease and slide sleeves over hubs.

(8) Insert reamer bolts into bolt holes of sleeve and sleeve or, sleeve and flange.

(9) Remove both lube plugs of one sleeve and add grease in sufficient amount to overflow

with lubricant holes in horizontal position. Re-install the 2 plugs.

(10) In case of doubt, please consult us.

2. DISASSEMBLING AND INSPECTION

(1) Remove bolts.

(2) Slide sleeves off hubs.

(3) Control gearing and sealing.

(4) Control alignment.

(5) In case of doubt, please consult us.

3. CENTERING

(1) SPACING BETWEEN HUBS AND ALLOWABLE ERROR

1. FEEDING

(1) In the case of gear oil (Fig.2)

- Remove the two oil plugs, upper and lower, and feed the recommended oil through the

upper plug hole, until it flows out of the lower plug hole.

- After the feeding, screw in the plugs securely applying the sealing agent (as used in the

keyway portion) or sealing tape.

(2) In the case of grease (Fig.3)

- When assembling, pack the coupling sleeve and the coupling hub with the recommended

grease until their teeth become invisible, and after tightening the reamer bolts, add the

grease through the oil plug hole using a grease gun, etc.

4. MA INTENA NCE

- After about 3 months of the initial operation, feed fresh oil or grease to the coupling

after thoroughly removing the old oil or old grease and abrasion particles from the inside of the

coupling by means of disassembly, and thereafter add or change the oil or grease using the

plug hole every 6 months (every 4000 hours).

(1) Remove both plugs of one sleeve.

(2) Position lube holes at horizontal and by means of a grease gun, force grease into one hole

until clean grease flows out of the opposite hole.

(3) Re-install the plugs.
