POWER TRANSMISSION EQUIPMENTS
Power Transmission products refers to various components that allow for internal parts to operate properly in machinery. These items typically include: belts, chains, couplings, pulleys, sprockets, bushings, hubs, bearings, linear actuators, slide rails, bevel gears, worm gears, and various other components.
A shaft coupling is used to join two shafts together and to ensure that the two shafts rotate together
|Rigid couplings connect well-aligned shafts, while flexible shaft couplings are used to cancel out the misalignment between two shafts.
These components can also be used to absorb or reduce shock and vibrations. Some of the many different kinds of couplings include bellows couplings, flywheel couplings, jaw couplings, universal joints, fluid couplings, and torque limiters. Couplings are commonly used in power transmissions, generators, wheels, pumps, and turbines.
Essentially, a gearmotor is a pairing of gear reducer and ac or dc electrical motor. The gear and the motors are combined into one unit.
|A gearmotor delivers high torque at low horsepower or low speed. The speed specifications for these motors are normal speed and stall-speed torque. These motors use gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to reduce speed, which makes more torque available.
Gearmotors are most often used in applications that need a lot of force to move heavy objects.
Speed reducers are used to redirect the output of a high-speed motor to another component at a lower speed.
|Gears within the speed reducer provide the mechanism for reducing the output speed of the motor.
The size ratio of the input gear to the output gear is directly related to the speed reduction, so different sized gears can be used to achieve different speeds.
Speed reducers are know by many names and come in a variety of configurations. These include cyclo reducers, gear reducers, gearboxes, right angle gear boxes, and planetary gearboxes.
