Boost Your Gear Drive Productivity

Boost Your Gear Drive Productivity

In any economic climate, productivity is a concern. In times as uncertain as these, productivity is an all-hands-on-deck exercise. Gains in productivity don’t care where you find them.

One place to look is gear drive efficiency. And one place to turn is to Hub City and their high efficiency helical gear drives: inline gears, helical bevels and worm gears. These products are especially applicable to applications involving conveyors and conveying equipment, packaging machinery, food processing, bottling equipment and bulk material handling systems.

The increased efficiency starts with savings of energy. If older gear drives are yield 40 to 60 percent efficiency, imagine how much you can save with Hub City and their 90 to 95 percent efficiency.

With all of the emphasis on electric motors and the law mandating higher efficiency, it makes logical and economic sense to couple a premium efficiency motor to a drive that is highly efficient.
