What is Mechanical Power Transmission?

  • There are four major types of power transmission which are mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, and pneumatic.
  • Mechanical power transmission is the transfer of power from the source to the component that uses it.
  • Mechanical power can be transmitted via a belt drive, rope drive, chain drive or gear drive.
  • The power is transmitted through a drive shaft to the driven shaft.

Common Uses of Mechanical Power Transmission

  • Shafts & couplings
  • Power screws
  • Gears & gear trains
  • Brakes & clutches
  • Belts, ropes & pulleys
  • Chains & sprockets

Our secondary operations include de-burring, parts cleaning, surface treatments, stamping, finishing and polishing.

We supply quality gear drives for power transmission systems including right angle, bevel, worm gear and spindles. We also supply custom design gear drives and help find your necessary products during prototype to final testing.
