Case Study Involving Surface Durability and Improved Surface Finish

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 […]

Best-Pratice Gearbox Lubrication

Best-Pratice Gearbox Lubrication

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 […]

Synchronous Belts & Exposure To Water

Synchronous Belts & Exposure To Water

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 […]

FEATURED PRODUCT: Poly Chain Sprockets

FEATURED PRODUCT: Poly Chain Sprockets

Features and Advantages of the Poly Chain Sprockets Full split in bushing allows easy installation and removal. Precise sprocket design produces positive, press fi t to shaft. Smaller, narrower sprockets save shaft space, keep the load closer to bearing and extend life of reducer. Poly Chain GT2 Sprockets keep overhung load below manufacturers recommendation. Sprockets […]
