Abstract

Application of vibration analysis in diagnostics of faults within worm gearboxes is fraught with difficulty. However, these types of gears are widely used in many industries and substantial cost may arise from their maintenance due to undetected failures. The health condition of three different worm gearboxes was evaluated using a number of vibration signal analysis techniques including spectral Kurtosis and enveloping in order to identify the existence of faults. It is concluded that diagnosis of faults is feasible as long as the appropriate analysis technique is employed.
