More than 30,000 variations of the highest quality KHK stock gears are available in the UK and across Europe from master distributor, RA Rodriquez, and the company has just enhanced its online resources to aid selection.
KHK is Japan’s leading gear manufacturer and its range is based on 82 years of manufacturing experience. Its products are suitable for a broad variety of applications including high speed rotation and high precision motion applications and are available in an extensive choice of materials.
As well as a concise, downloadable overview of the range available from RA Rodriguez, new additions to its website include a helpful video guide on how to locate and select the correct gear for your application and a 478-page guide to the complete KHK range. This provides technical information of the company’s bevel, mitre, screw and spur gears, worms and wheels, racks, bevel gearboxes and ancillary products.
The online catalogue also includes information on the latest addition to the RA Rodriguez range, the KHK R-Series pinion for speed reducers. The new pinion is not only ideal for use with the RA Rodriguez Nabtesco GH series gearhead reducers but also provides superior compatibility with flanged speed reducers from a host of other leading OEMs.
Completing the RA Rodriguez KHK online resources is a freely accessible gear calculation and drafting software. These programs help design engineers to determine the best gear geometry for the given application, even with few known parameters.
