High performance bevel gearboxes range extended

By | September 11th, 2017|News|

A new size, the P-65, has been added to the Graessner PowerGear P range of bevel gearboxes available from Bedford-based Drive Lines. Being 65mm cubed in size it is expected to prove very popular in a wide range of applications, such as for use with screw jacks to create vertical lifting and lowering mechanisms. With [...]

Mechanical Backlash: How much is too much?

By | August 23rd, 2017|News|

It is probably a natural reaction to assume that backlash is a bad thing which needs to be designed out of every engineered system. The reality isn’t so simple, as Ian Carr, Managing Director of Drive Line Technologies, explains: there are times when backlash is unacceptable; other times when it does not really have any [...]

Industrial couplings: unsung heroes of the drive train

By | July 17th, 2017|Couplings & Torque Limiters, News|

Matching a coupling to its duties in any given drive train requires skill, expertise and insight. The coupling may be required to accommodate misalignment, ensure safety, absorb shock loads and perform other functions too. Ian Carr at specialist engineers, Drive Lines, explains the features and benefits that different industrial couplings from the R+W range offer, [...]

Dynamic balance improves motion systems’ performance

By | July 17th, 2017|Couplings & Torque Limiters, News|

High speed precision motion systems have to have dynamic balance, otherwise they will vibrate in use, lose precision, suffer excessive wear and fail prematurely. Ian Carr of Drive Lines Technologies in Bedford reviews procedures and techniques for balancing high speed precision couplings. Precision drive systems are generally required to have a relatively long working life, [...]

Combined bearings & profiles for lifting applications – A cost effective guide

By | June 13th, 2017|News|

Choosing a reliable, efficient and cost effective lifting system for heavy duty fabrications and automation projects can become a mine field. With so many different solutions available often the time invested in finding the most suitable solution for an application is devoted to the type of screw jack and motor used. However, if you start [...]

Precision couplings are an essential element of advanced machines

By | May 31st, 2017|Couplings & Torque Limiters, News|

Engineered precision motion systems nearly all rely in one way or another on the accuracy of high-precision couplings. These couplings must deliver smooth, rotation, often at high speeds. R+W is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of couplings, with a dedicated ‘White’ range of precision couplings; its products are available in the UK through Drive Lines. [...]
