    * Power Transmission and Flat Belt Drive Analysis

    Power Transmission and Flat Belt Drive Analysis POWER TRANSMISSION The power is transmitted from one shaft to the another shaft by a belt, chain and gear drive. The belts and ropes are used where distance between the two shafts is large. The chains are used for intermediate distances. The gears are used for shorter distance […]
