Demand for Robotics Drives Growth of Precision Gearbox Market  

The precision gear box industry is currently fragmented by the presence of a large number of regional and local players. These companies have adopted major competitive strategies such as strategic partnerships, merger and acquisitions, and product development.  The precision gearbox market is expected to be worth around 3 billion US by 2024. These machines are […]

How to Extend the Life of Your Gears 

Gears are an essential part of most machine power transmission systems. Consequently, failure can spell both disaster and downtime for your products or equipment. With so much at stake, it’s important to know and understand the variables that can affect the service life of your gears, as well as proper maintenance techniques.  Optimize Your Gear […]

Testimonial: Gate Corporation

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, […]

Case Study Involving Surface Durability and Improved Surface Finish

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

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 […]
