Specifications provided to a gear drive manufacturer will affect the size and cost of the gear drive that is selected. Generally, the cost will increase as the number of requirements does. Therefore, it’s best to specify the basics and specify additional requirements only if it is required to successfully run the application. 

In this webcast, you will learn how the following factors affect gear drive selection:
  • Load and Speed
  • Ratio
  • Configuration
  • Service Factors
  • Speed Variations
  • Ambient Temperature and Altitude
  • Bearing L10 Expectations
  • Service Costs
  • Accessory Requirements
