Gearbox design requirements and so forth

  1. May 29, 2012 #1
    Hi, im looking to design a gearbox that outputs 200Nm from an input of 0.25-0.3Nm. My question is which gear train method would be more efficient. Also any design guidelines if there are any.

    The gear box is to be rotated at the input by a users own strength

    Welcome to PF, Darren.
    I'd recommend looking into an epicyclic train first, although it could be done otherwise.
