Solid shaft gearbox

Solid shaft gearboxes and hollow shaft gearboxes in comparison

In essence, a solid shaft gearbox is exactly the opposite of a hollow shaft gearbox. A solid shaft is an integral part of the respective application and turns from the inside out, in a manner of speaking. With a hollow shaft, the reverse occurs: Here, the application, which is provided with its own shaft, is inserted into the gearbox. While hollow shafts tend to be used in connection with weight-reduced designs, solid shafts can be provided with axial and radial threaded holes for fastening.
