Mechanical Transmission

Mechanical power transmission transfers power and rotation from one place to another using mechanical elements. It involves components such as gears, pulleys, belts, chains, shafts, and couplings.

These components work together to transmit rotary motion and torque from a power source to a driven device, such as a machine tool or a conveyor.
Mechanical power transmission has several advantages, including its reliability, versatility, and low cost compared to other forms of power transmission, such as electrical or hydraulic power transmission. Mechanical power transmission is also well-suited for applications that require high torque and power density, such as heavy-duty machinery and industrial equipment.

Shaft design

A mechanical shaft is a rotating member usually of circular cross-section either solid or hollow, which transmits power and rotational motion

Mechanical Power Transmission

Mechanical power transmission is the transfer of energy from where it’s generated to a place where it is used to perform work using simple machines, linkages and mechanical power transmission elements.

Shaft Splines & Serrations

Shaft splines & serrations are used to transmit rotational torque on the same axis and connect mechanical elements such as gears and pulleys.

Shaft key and keyway

A Key is used on a shaft keyway to retain mechanical power transmission components such as gear drives and pulleys to transmit power

Pillow block bearing

Pillow block bearing units are housed bearing with a machined mounting surface and used in the mechanical transmission to support shafts.

Shaft stress concentration factor

The shaft stress concentration factor quantifies the stress concentration and is defined as the ratio of the maximum stress to the nominal stress

Keys & keyways specification

Keys and keyways secure the hub and shaft to prevent relative movement between a power transmitting shaft and an attached component.
