The steel industry involves various production methods and processes for steel manufacturing and end products. This in turn is done with the help of heavy duty industrial machines and equipment. Various components including powerful gearboxes are used in these machines for ensuring a smooth power transmission. Industrial gearboxes used in the steel industry provide high torque with high reduction ratios. They are available in a range of different sizes, specifications and configurations to suit the different needs of the industry. Intermediate gear box of conscast stand is one of the gear boxes which drive the roller of stand. As the service conditions at continuous casting department not favorable to equipment like gear boxes, the maintenance of these gear boxes is toughest task. The damaged gear boxes along with conscast stands are being repaired at Central Machine Shop. Our project work involves study the existing procedure of repair of gear box. Analyze the existing process and suggest improved method of repairing the gear box slashing both time and man-hours consumption. This was achieved by design and manufacturing a fixture which can separate both halves of gearbox casing within minutes using a 100 tones hydraulic jack.
Keywords- Conscast stands, hydraulic jack. Intermediate gear box fixture.
