Chain reaction

Greg Sharp reveals how constant development keeps chain at the forefront of technology

New range of gearmotors introduced

Range includes parallel shaft helical gearboxes, foot and flange mounted inline helical gearboxes, bevel helical gearboxes and special gearboxes for hoisting applications

Contactless power transmission

Burnt, bent or dirty contacts can often be the cause of time consuming and costly production failure

Gearboxes with output torques up to 50Nm

Nord supplies the two-stage helical bevel gearboxes with hollow and solid shafts, single or double shafts, for foot or flange mounting

Composite materials for bearing bonding to secure rudder integrity

The use of composite materials offers an alternative to traditional press and freeze fitting that ensures not only accurate alignment but also long-term secure location of the bearing. Alice Jucquois reports

Flange mount shaft bearings

UC range comes in square flanged, side flanged or surface mounting formats with through shaft or end capped bearings

10 top torque tips

Driveshafts deliver power as a rotary force, and in most applications there is a need to know the amount of power in the system. But getting measurements from a turning shaft requires some engineering ingenuity, so here Tony Ingham runs through the basics
