Fairloc® - Selecting the Best Hub Fastener for a Power Transmission Application
Fairloc® is completely self-contained and the unique design allows the hub to fully and accurately support the component on the shaft reducing any motion and misalignment after clamping the hub.
How to Achieve Optimum Performance in a Miniature Gear Train
Smooth, accurate gears and optimum performance is the goal of any new design. Achieving those goals in the early design stage not only meets performance requirements but makes your design cost-efficient. A key component of this is being able to accurately predict dimensional changes due to any type of surface finishing. Other benefits include lower manufacturing costs and no time lost due to a design error. In a gear mechanism, the center distance between shafts and the tooth thickness of the gear define the correct mesh and reliable performance of a gear train. To achieve an accurate gear mesh in a mechanism, it is necessary to account for any dimensional changes that may occur after surface finishing, case hardening or heat treatment.
Steps to Designing a Miniature Belt and Pulley Drive System
Belt drives are particularly useful in applications where layout flexibility is important. They enable the designer to place components in more advantageous locations at larger distances without paying a price penalty. Timing belts are one of the most commonly used motion transmitting elements in design applications, such as robotics, aerospace, medical, military, and commercial design. There are many different types of timing belt available, with several options for tooth profile, material, color, and reinforced cord. The key to an efficient drive system is choosing the most appropriate belt - learn how here.
