How do you calculate the output torque of a speed increaser?
To find the output torque and speed of a gear increaser, use
Ouput Torque = Input Torque x Ratio of Gear Increaser
Torque is measured in Inch Pounds
Output Speed = Input Speed / Ratio of Gear Increaser
Example: A gear increaser with 1000 in/lbs of input
torque, an input
speed of 2000 RPM, and a ratio of .20:1 is:
Output Torque = 1000 x .20
Output RPM = 2000 / .20
Calculated out this gives an output torque of 200 in/lbs and
speed of 10,000 RPM. (rounded to the nearest 10,000th)
