LMR offer a bespoke service in a variety of applications. We will work with the total involvement of the end user to ensure a product that is individually tailored to your specific requirements. We appreciate that time… Read more »
Bevel gears are generally conical in shape and the teeth can be straight, spiral or hypoid. Their common use can be found in differential drives. This allows separate axles to rotate at different speeds depending on the… Read more »
In an emergency our expert team are just a phone call away. We offer a 24-hour breakdown service. What does this mean? Once the budget cost is agreed LMR will work, if necessary 24 hours non-stop until… Read more »
The teeth on a helical (spiral) gear are cut at an angle so that when they mesh the mating flank of the teeth gradually roll into each other spreading the load as they rotate. They can be… Read more »
A rack is a straight or flat gear, and is used with a gear pinion. (See Spur Gears). If one was to take a circumference of a round gear, unfold it, then lay it flat it would… Read more »
Splines are used as a drive mechanism or in a mechanical or electrical coupling arrangement. They transmit torque from one part to another. There are many types of splines such as Involute, Straight sided or Serrated just… Read more »
A Sprocket is a wheel with profiled teeth machined around its circumference that mesh with a chain or a track. They do not mesh together directly but are driven normally by a chain of the same pitch… Read more »
The most common type of gear, spur gears are mounted on parallel shafts and the edge of each tooth is straight. They are the simplest form of gear but can be noisy in mesh, and because of… Read more »
Timing Pulleys transmit power and speed in the same way as that of a chain sprocket. A Timing drive provides a non-slip synchronous transmission with less noise than a chain drive. They do not normally require any… Read more »
Worm gearing can reduce the rotational speed or allow higher torque to be transmitted, they are a compact way of achieving this. The addition of a worm drive to a small high-speed motor increases the range of… Read more »
