Gates offers white paper on selecting drive systems
Selecting the proper drive system can save you thousands of dollars over the life of the drive. Whether designing a new power transmission system or converting to a new drive, design engineers and plant maintenance managers have three broad options: roller chain, V-belt and synchronous belt drives.
The Gates Corporation has produced a white paper that discusses the proper ways to determine your needs for a drive system and how each option can be evaluated.
