A comparison between wrapped and raw-edge v-belts, looking at capabilities and drawbacks, and how they affect certain applications.
Worn sprockets can dramatically impact the viability of roller chain applications. Here are signs to look for.
Bushings are an indispensable component of power transmission, allowing for a flexible drive system. The simple system to install and remove a bushing allows us to quickly change sprockets, sheaves, and pulleys – among other things – from one shaft size to another. They also allow us to make modifications quickly and efficiently. Some specialty…
An in depth comparison between Martin and BlackStar sprockets. This article touches on an explanation of power transmission materials theory, shares the results of independent and in-house materials analysis, discusses how materials affect applications and what it all means for the end-user.
