Unigeo, a.s. - Design of custom gear box for shear tester

The goal was to design a gear box for a unidirectional shear tester in a soil testing laboratory. The design was based on the design of an existing very old gear box. The gear box is driven by an asynchronous motor with a frequency converter. On the output of the gear box there are two linearly moving bars which move the frames holding the soil samples. The ratio of the gear box is approx. 1 rev/mm.
