This technology uses different types of gears for power transmission. In fact, it could transmit power not merely between parallel shafts, but also between non-parallel, co-planar, and intersecting etc. shafts.

In the world of mechanical power transmission, gear drives have a very special and prominent place. This is the most preferred technology if you want to transmit significant power over a short distance with a constant velocity ratio. The mechanism of equipment drives is pretty simple – one’s teeth, which are cut on the blanks of the gear wheel, mesh with each other to transmit power. To avoid slipping, the projections on one disc mesh with the recesses on additional disc in equipment drives.
Once the products you need to transport are safely loaded on the chain conveyor, the machine is powered through the manipulation of the ON/OFF key or change. This causes a clockwise or counter-clockwise rotational movement on the motor system, depending on the desired direction of motion. This leads to a movement of the networked gears and chain to go in the same direction as the motor. As a result, the chain conveyor movements the strain through the drive teach to the last equipment, where off-loading is performed. For unidirectional functions, conveyor systems can also be tailor-made to offer movements to either direction. This is achieved through integrating two or more motors on either end of the conveyor system.
For optimal productivity, the conveyor should be positioned in a horizontal position. This creates a simple and steady condition for managing of products. However, the conveyors may also be used wherever angular operations are necessary, as the gears can be adjusted and fixed at different angles.
