"Approximately one third of motors are equipped with friction belt drives. The performance and efficiency of many belt drives can be improved through...
The new design gear rack drive with supporting bearing cover permanently bolted in place makes it possible to fully utilize the gearunit's torque. As a consequence smaller gear units and smaller motors can be used.
Innovative system concept for gear rack drives in machine tool manufacture.
On conventional gear rack drives (with-out supporting bearing) the gear unit bearing is the limiting element and as a result defines a gear unit size that is often over-dimensioned for the actual torque required.
