Power Transmission Categories

Belts & Belting

Belts & Belting

Belts are looped strips of flexible material used to link two or more rotating wheels in a mechanical drive system.

Clutches & Brakes

Clutches & Brakes

A clutch is a device that provides driving force to another mechanism by connecting the driven mechanism to the driving mechanism.

Couplings

Couplings

A coupling is a mechanical connection that brings two shafts together at the ends to allow transmit power from one rotating shaft to a non rotating shaft.

Dampers/Shock Absorbers

Dampers/Shock Absorbers

Shock absorbers or dampers are designed to smooth out and damp shock impulse, dissipating kinetic energy to prevent stress from effecting mechanical performance.

Flexible Shafts

Flexible Shafts

Flexible shafts are devices for transmission of rotary motion between two non-fixed objects.

Gearheads & Gearboxes

Gearheads & Gearboxes

Use a rotating power source to another device using gear rations. When transmission have multiple gear rations, the gearbox switches the gears.

Gearmotors & Drives

Gearmotors & Drives

Gear motors are small motors constructed with integral gear reducers, and drives are systems used for controlling motor speed.

Gears

Gears

A gear is a rotating machine component with cogs or teeth that mesh with another cog to transmit torque.

Pulley Stock & Flanges

Pulley Stock & Flanges

Pulleys are used to change the direction of an applied force and transmit rotation motion or create a mechanical advantage.

Roller Chain

Roller Chain

Roller chain is a component used for transmission of mechanical power as in bicycle and motorcycles as well as agricultural and industrial machinery.

Shaft Collars

Shaft Collars

Shaft collar is a simple machine component found in motors and gearboxes. The collar is a mechanical stop that locates components and bearing faces.

Sheaves

Sheaves

Sheaves are rollers/wheels with grooves along the edge that are typically used for holding cables, ropes, or belts.

Speed Reducers

Speed Reducers

Speed reducers are mehcanisms designed to reduce the speed of an input shft by a certain ratio.

Spline Shafts

Spline Shafts

Spline shafts are shafts featuring a series of projections designed to fit into slots on a corresponding shaft enabling both to move together in a set up similar to gears.

Sprockets

Sprockets

Similar to pulleys but instead of smooth surfaces sprockets have teeth that fit into chains, tracks or other perforated materials and rotate to create torque.

Timing Belt Pulleys

Timing Belt Pulleys

Timing belt pulleys are the component of the timing system that drive the pulley belt to complete the timing belt motion.
