The patented OXE Diesel transmission eliminates bevel gears


The patented OXE Diesel transmission is built to transfer higher torque and power from modern diesel engines, required by commercial users. As endurance reliability power and control are in focus, the use of bevel gear systems found in pleasure craft products, are ruled out. 

When creating products aimed for commercial use, more durable and efficient solution must be utilized in the OXE Diesel, the belt transmission is such a change.

The patented 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.
