Jul. 18, 2017 - Rexnord’s newest whitepaper, Avoid Failure and Downtime: Imperatives to Specify Gear Drives, details how to increase reliability, uptime and profitability by selecting the correct gear drive.

Written by Robin Olson, director of applications engineers, and Tuan Ton, application engineer, the whitepaper outlines the factors that customers need to consider when choosing a gear drive for their application. These include: load and speed; ratio; configuration; service factors; speed variations; ambient temperature and altitude; bearing L10 expectations; service costs; and accessory requirements. The specifications that are provided to the manufacturer will affect the size and cost of the gear drive that is selected. Generally, the cost will increase as the number of requirements does. Therefore, it is best to specify the basics and only specify additional requirements if they are absolutely required to successfully run the application.
