The belt transmission used in the OXE Diesel eliminates weak bevel gears


The OXE Diesel transmission is built to transfer the higher torque and power delivered by the modern automotive diesel engines used in the OXE Diesel. As endurance and reliability are key, the use of bevel gear systems found in pleasure craft products was ruled out.

To create a product aimed for the commercial market a more durable and efficient solution has been utilized in the OXE Diesel, the belt transmission.

The belt transmission used in the OXE Diesel eliminates bevel gears by harnessing the latest belt technology. It allows for increased torque transfer to the propeller, it also allows for smaller torpedoes and slimmer submerged modules. 

This provides less drag and thereby reduces fuel consumption and increases speed in comparable gear-driven units.
