Mechanical drives training system – Level 1

Mechanical drives training system – Level 1

Introduction to belt, chain and gear drives

Properly aligned pulleys, ­sprockets, and gears as well as adjustment of belt tension, chain slack and gear backlash are essential to minimize vibration, maximize power transmission, and meet the expected ­service-life of mechanical drives. ­Industrial mechanics must be trained to master the fundamental skills ­related to the identification, installation, and maintenance of belt, chain, and gear drives.

The mechanical drives level 1 ­includes all the hardware and tools to teach these skills. Pulleys, sprockets and gears are stored on a panel for quick identification and inventory control.

Level 1 requires the Workstation package.
