Power transmissions are the driving equipment behind countless machines and units over a wide range of applications and industries. Complexly functioning, yet simple looking, power transmissions are used in mechanical drivetrains to transmit or translate movement into useable functions.
How Are Power Transmissions Structured?
While complexity of the structure can vary according to the intended use and application, most power transmissions consist of the following components:
- Gears & gearboxes
- Linear motion slides & actuators
- Timing belts/pulleys/bushings
- Shaft couplings
- Bore reducers
Power Transmission Gears
Gears are a main component of a power transmission. With specialized teeth, these gears transmit power throughout a system with no slipping. These specialty parts are known for their reliability, low maintenance needs, and high efficiency in a small package. In fact, their compact nature makes them the ideal solution when space, foundational structure costs, and lubricating oil consumption all need to be refined as much as possible. Illinois Pulley and Gear can manufacture the ideal replacement gears to ensure your equipment continues to operate at full capacity.
