Want to Save Money on Roller Chains?

What I am about to share with you will blow your mind! I built my small and profitable (up until last year) business from scratch, working diligently to become an authorized distributor for some of the top manufacturers of Roller Chain & Power Transmission parts in the world. Names such as Hitachi, U.S.Tsubaki & power Rite. What you may not know, is in order for me to get the great pricing that I pass on to you, I must sell a certain amount of product from the manufacturers each year.Unfortunately, I did not meet that quota in 2009 with some of the manufacturers. By providing competitive pricing and great customer service I was able to maintain my small customer base in my local area. The problem was that when my small group of customers felt the crunch of the recession, so did I.Drastic times, calls for drastic measures. In order to maintain my distributorships, I brought my 9 year old business to the internet in January of 2010. We are in survival mode and it's time to cut our profit to almost nothi...


What Is A Worm Gear Reducer And Precisely What Are Its Added Benefits?

A worm gear reducer, also known as a worm drive, is the smallest mechanical speed reducer. It enables an incredibly high application of torque in a small space. A linear gear together with grooves cut into it like a screw drives a circular gear. The term 'worm drive' relates to the arrangement - the linear gear is referred to as the worm, while the gear is known as the worm gear.Once the worm spins at a high speed, the worm gear moves little by little, but with a significant amount of force, allowing it to move high-inertia objects. These right angle gear reducers often heat the surrounding air up to 100 degrees hotter than the ambient temperature, which may seem high for a gear reducer, but is considered low when it comes to industrial applications.It is essential to note that worm gear drives are not frequently used for high-horsepower applications. Worm gear drives usually are low priced solutions to produce high levels of force, but in regards to high-speed, high-horsepower applications, the more expensiv...


Do You Know That Your Vehicle's Timing Belt Is About To Fail?

The cam belt is an important part of car's engine as it provides a connection between the crankshaft and camshaft, that is why it is very important to look out for any symptoms that suggest that a replacement is needed. The timing belt monitors and regulates the opening and closing of valves in the vehicles engine. It also guarantees the hassle-free operation of the motor. Subsequently, having the timing belt changed when required is important for the well being of the engine of your vehilce.All four stroke vehicle engines have been designed in a way that the valves in the engine open and close with the revolving of the crankshaft. This nicely illustrates that it is not a good idea to put off the replacement of the crank shaft.Usually, timing belts are fairly tough and are assembled to last for a very long time. Even so, you still may need to replace it if it gets run-down. Lots of folks need to recognise the timing belt's warning signs that identify that it is due to be replaced. There are lots of indicators...


Transmission Oils

All vehicles including cars, trucks, buses, and various other machines have manual or automatic gear boxes to transmit the power generated by the engine to the wheels. These gearboxes or transmissions require lubrication in the form of transmission oil or gear oil to lubricate the gears as well as to cool them so as to seamlessly transmit power to the required wheels.Take SUVs for example; these 4-wheel drive options need a little help to negotiate those rough and steep terrains. This is done with a transfer case, which in turn needs transmission oil so the vehicle runs smoothly. Automatic transmission vehicles use ATF (automatic transmission fluid), and manual transmissions use gear oil for the gearboxes.Remember; newer vehicles that utilize automatic options will have more gears involved. This means you have to be plentiful when it comes to the transmission oil. This is very important if you want any sort of longevity from your machines. If you're looking for the best oils then it has to be one that offers ...


When Does Your Car Need an Oil Change, Tune Up and Timing Belt Replacement?

Thinking of putting off the oil change for yet another time? If you've got a lot on your plate at the moment, having to drop by a car repair shop is something that you'd prefer to do when it's absolutely necessary. Oil change after every 3,000 miles?If you're still driving a car that's more than ten years old, then you should have an oil change after every 3,000 miles as advised by most service stations. Oil serves to lubricate the moving parts of car engines, preventing the metal surfaces from grinding against each other and wearing out because of friction. It also prevents corrosion, and it helps cool the engine and keeps it clean by soaking up the harmful by-products of combustion. Oil, once dirty from use, won't get the job done in the way that it should. Determining when you should have an oil change depends on the type of car you drive. Different makes of cars now have various kinds of engines that will differ in the way they use oil. For instance, a 2010 BMW 3Series can go up to 15,000 miles before you...


Industrial Belts by PIX Transmission: Redefining Standards

In industrial machinery, the use of belts is the simplest and most cost-effective method of achieving power transmission. The demands on a belt-driven transmission system are large, which has lead to several variations of the concept and idea of transmitting power through belts. There was a time when certain systems could not use belts--only gears and chains--improvements in belt-engineering have now allowed the use of bets in those systems as well. Another advantage of using belt-driven transmissions is the fact that belt drives do not require axially aligned shafts to operate. Belt driven systems have always been highly efficient (90-98%), have a high tolerance for misalignment and are of relatively lower cost if the shafts are far apart. Over the decades, various types of belt transmissions have been devised to suit various applications and to meet certain challenges. Flat Belts:Flatbelts saw widespread use in the 19th and early 20th centuries in line shafting to transmit power in factories. Countless othe...
