18000 Series Power Shift Transmission Development 740673
This paper describes the concept, design, and options of a new power shift transmission family for industrial equipment in the 50-100 hp range.
The converter, clutch, and gearing arrangements provide the basis for various transmission configurations with both a drop and straight through output. The designs allow multiple usage of components within a transmission and between different sizes of transmissions. The various gearing, bearing, and clutch designs are based on proved experience factors, and as such will provide a new reliable family of transmissions.
