Reduction gears and gear units are used in many industrial applications, including turbines. These gears often experience high loads and speeds, which can lead to injuries if not properly designed and constructed. Gearbox failures can also occur, which can lead to even more serious injuries.

Serious Injuries

Reduction gears and gear units are essential for industrial applications. They are used to reduce the rotational speed of a shaft or to change the direction of a shaft. They can be found in many different types of machines, including turbines. When gears are used improperly, they can cause injuries.One common type of injury is a gearbox rupture. This happens when the teeth on the reduction gear fail. The gearbox becomes overloaded, and the teeth start to break. This causes the gearbox to release energy in all directions at once. This can cause severe injuries to people nearby.Gearboxes are also responsible for another type of injury called a thrust load failure. This happens when one side of the gearbox is overloaded and can’t handle the extra load. The overloading force causes the teeth on one side of the gearbox to break. Again, this causes an uncontrolled release of energy that can cause injuries.  To avoid these types of injuries, it is important to use reduction gears and gear units correctly.

If you have been injured by reduction gears and gear units for turbines, you should contact an attorney. These machines are very dangerous and can cause serious injuries if not used properly. An attorney can help you file a claim and get the compensation you deserve.
