When working with belt or chain drives it is critical to understand component wear characteristics, proper installation procedures, alignment, proper tensioning, sheave and sprocket inspections are critical. It’s not just achieving the expected life of the belt or chain but also the life of the bearings on the driver and driven machinery. Too much or even too little attention to tension or alignment can result in rapid and expensive bearing failures. This class covers everything about these drives in detail and offers the mechanic a “stress free” environment to accomplish “hands on” work on actual adjustment, inspection, and alignment. What better way to learn than by doing. The attendee will learn about basic mechanical applications, failures, life expectancy and maintenance of shafts, bearings, chains, sprockets, bushings, belts (V-belt, synchronous belt, timing belt), sheaves and other off set machine components.
