Power transmission and gear components must meet extreme performance and reliability demands in order to prove effective on the battlefield. That’s because they are the heart of rotating mechanisms used to rapidly detect threats, home in on targets and quickly fire projectiles aboard combat vehicles and ships. In these situations, lives and mission success often depend on their ability to support heavy payloads and reliably deliver fast, precise motion, often under punishing conditions.
When equipping rotating military equipment, you need gears designed and constructed to the highest quality. A new white paper, Quality Gearing Keeps Mission-Critical Systems Rotating for Combat, describes some examples of rotating equipment aboard combat vehicles and ships that incorporate gear technology, and it reviews some of the basic considerations to remember when you implement gears for these applications. With a better understanding of these factors, you’ll implement a rotating system that will perform effectively and reliably in combat.
