Motion Systems in Warren MI has been my “go-to” shop for so very many jobs that others shied away from due to either the complexity of the part. They ask the right questions, and deliver parts that I could always feel proud of. Their list of tooling spans not only the commodities in Power Transmission, […]
from Gear Technology http://www.geartechnology.com/issues/0812/ Gear tooth wear and micropitting are very difficult phenomena to predict analytically. The failure mode of micropitting is closely correlated to the lambda ratio. Micropitting can be the limiting design parameter for long-term durability. Also, the failure mode of micropitting can progress to wear or macropitting, and then go on to […]

Modern gears are performing heavier work and carrying greater loads than ever before. Gear manufacturers are redesigning, modernizing, and using finer steels to produce precision gears that will give better performance. Demands on global industry are often forcing users to raise production above rated machine capacity. This is done with the knowledge that gear life […]
Light and occasional contact with water (occasional wash downs) should not seriously affect synchronous belts in general. Prolonged contact (consistent spray or submersion) can result in significantly reduced tensile strength in fiberglass belts, and potential length variation in aramid belts. Prolonged contact with water also causes rubber compounds to swell, although less than with oil […]

‘Made in the USA’ is Making a Comeback … According to Time Magazine: The U.S. economy continues to struggle, and the weak March jobs report — just 88,000 positions were added — briefly spooked the market. But step back and you’ll see a bright spot, perhaps the best economic news the U.S. has witnessed since […]
According to Time Magazine: U.S. manufacturing is back. That’s been the conventional economic wisdom now for several months, and there’s plenty of proof to back it up – rising factory output, strong manufacturing production gains, and lower labor costs that make American workers more attractive. Couple that with the natural gas boom underway in the […]
