Any industrial environment, such as those working within manufacturing, will have multiple different types of power transmission technologies in use. Some of the most commonly used types of power transmission drives include chain drives and belt drives.
At Arrow Engineering Components, you will see below we stock a range of both chain drives and belt drives. Both of which offer various benefits to your industrial operations.
Chain drives are useful when trying to reduce slip, as they are effective in transmitting speed and torque. These types of drives are not impacted by wet conditions, age, or lubricants and the costs for upkeep and maintenance are particularly low, on average.
Belt drives, on the other hand, offer a simple, cost-effective, and quiet option for power transmission drives. These are, therefore, some of the most preferred methods of power transmission. They are most useful when a smooth transfer of power is required.
