Know When to Fold ‘Em

By | 2018-02-08T09:54:11+00:00 April 18th, 2018|Application Examples|

Servo systems aren’t the only solution for precision motion control applications. Other gear products can fit the bill when more traditional drive technology is desired. We recently had a customer inquire into a solution for a motion control problem he [...]

Outside The Box

By | 2018-04-17T14:11:23+00:00 April 11th, 2018|Application Examples|

Have you ever had a special application where the standard gearbox catalog specs just didn’t fulfill the need? Perhaps you had to run too fast or had too much torque, or just not enough space for either? Catalog data is [...]

Turning the Tables

By | 2018-04-02T11:49:23+00:00 April 9th, 2018|Application Examples|

There are many process and manufacturing operations that consist of multiple steps. In many cases the process is linear like a progressive punch press or an auto assembly line. But just as often it’s circular, like a bottle filling line [...]

How to Mix

By | 2018-03-23T10:20:38+00:00 March 21st, 2018|Application Examples, Product Focus|

Mixing and agitating applications can provide some of the most demanding requirements for gearboxes. Not only can speeds and loads vary dramatically, but environmental conditions can be difficult as well. High quality components, robust designs, and protection options are often [...]

Hybrids Drive Commuters

By | 2018-02-08T09:54:11+00:00 March 7th, 2018|Application Examples|

With energy efficiency a hot topic, designing hybrid power plants for vehicles is growing in popularity and cost effectiveness. But the gearing necessary requires special consideration. We had a customer recently request a right angle spiral bevel gear design that [...]

Controlling Converging Loads

By | 2018-02-19T11:24:22+00:00 January 9th, 2018|Application Examples|

In many material-handling applications it is necessary to make adjustments in the load support center distances to accommodate loads of different lengths or widths, especially if these loads have to be captured to avoid shifting. These loads can come in [...]

Leaking Oil Investigation

By | 2018-02-08T09:54:13+00:00 November 6th, 2017|Application Examples|

Leaking seals are the bane of gearbox users. Since lubrication is the life blood of enclosed drives, maintaining oil levels is critical to long life. When oil starts leaking, corrective action is necessary, but what action? What’s going wrong? Actually, [...]
