Options to Reduce Overhung Load on Gear Reducers and Gearboxes

If calculated overhung loads are larger than those recommended by a gearbox manufacturer, there are three possible options that can be used to reduce overhung load:

1) Increase the diameters of the sprockets or sheaves on the drive.
2) Move the sheave or sprocket inboard, thereby moving the overhung load closer to the reducer.
3) Use a belt type with a smaller overhung load connection factor (and, therefore, less total operating tension).
