A reduction gearboxes, or speed reducer, is used to reduce the speed of the input, from the motor, while also multiplying the torque the input creates.
From construction material to pitch diameter and ratio, timing belt and pulley design requires a number of decisions to make sure you get the perfect pulley for your application.
Speed reducers are fairly simple pieces of machinery. A speed reducer is simply a gear train between the motor and the machinery that is used to reduce the speed with which power is transmitted.
From tractors to heavy machinery, variable speed pulleys are used in a huge variety of applications. But how do variable speed pulleys work?
A critical component of power transmission systems is a worm gear speed reducer, also referred to as a right-angle gear box or a worm gear reducer. For compact applications with space limitation, miniature worm gearboxes can provide reliable solutions.
Our HTD timing pulleys are precision, injection molded and glass reinforced to offer efficient power transmission without slip or backlash.
Offering high ratio speed reduction in small packages, worm gearboxes are popular speed reducer solutions. When making a worm gearbox selection it is important to keep both your application and project specifications in mind.
With the greatest speed reduction in the smallest form factor, worm gearboxes are popular speed reducer solutions.
Typically found in lathes, light-duty milling machines, drills, and other power tools plastic or nylon molded v-belt pulleys are designed to be excellent solutions for low and fractional horsepower drives. And while standard design v-belt pulleys are appropriate for most applications, there are situations where a custom v-belt pulley is necessary.
