Cost saving installations
- self-contained, freestanding reduction gearbox including: clutch, thrust-bearing, pitch servomotor, oil pump, common pitch/lub. Oil pump and built on remote control actuator.
- shaft coupling directly flanged to the reduction gearbox.
The integration of several functions within the self-contained reduction gearbox makes fitting and alignment simple. External piping and mechanical connections are minimized, saving time and cost during installation and maintenance.
