Relationship of Couplings and Gears: How They Work Together

December 7, 2016

The powertrain of an extended mechanical device is built from many parts, but few are more important than couplings and gears. These transmission-essential components are defined by a special relationship. Gears are the radial momentum manipulators of the engineering realm.

What are Helical In-line Gearboxes?

December 2, 2016

Helical in-line gearboxes leverage the hybrid properties of angularly cut gearing teeth. In effect, power transmission errors are eliminated because the architecture of the engaging teeth inside the gearbox blends linear contact with a carefully implemented angular property.

What are Spur Gears?

November 16, 2016

Spur gears are circular mechanical parts with an axis and a rim studded in regularly spaced angular teeth. They're universally employed in countless gearing packages, which makes them the backbone of the power transmission industry. Geometrically austere yet essential, this everyday gearwheel may be manufactured with an understated profile, but it's always balanced and always built to exacting engineering standards.

What are Bevel Gears?

November 7, 2016

Bevel gears use angularly aligned teeth to transform the axial relationship between two working shafts. The fundamental profile of the wheel-shaped component stays relatively unchanged, but the outer teeth assume a slanted orientation. Traditionally, intersecting shafts engage at a 90° angle when these gears mesh, but that right-angled configuration is open to manipulation.

Series X Couplings Uses and Applications

October 26, 2016

The engineering conventions that rule the power transmission field have thus far addressed rigid positional constraints, but there are times when this geometrical conformity factor is prejudiced by real world issues. Sometimes drive shafts just don't line up perfectly.

Applications and Uses of Screwjacks

October 13, 2016

When a long rod shaped as a helical screw moves within a matching housing, the resulting linear motion creates enough lifting force to raise heavy loads. That's the essential purpose of a screw jack, a term that often finds its two-word label jammed together to create a short name for a popular piece of apparatus. Let's take a look at the applications and uses of screwjacks.

Applications of Bevel Helical Gears in Mining and Quarrying Industry

September 28, 2016

Robust mechanical housings are put to the test when they're appointed to mines and quarries, yet they function optimally thanks to their ingress-protecting designs. Likewise, the complex gear trains that labour within these sealed units are built to endure, even when harsh conditions throw down a geological challenge.

How Do Worm Gear Reducers Work?

July 28, 2016

Worm gear reducers mesh two very different mechanical parts, but, dissimilar as these paired components unquestionably are, they do create a unique relationship. They function as potent gearing reducers, moving parts that lock together to greatly reduce the speed of a gear train.
