A equipment drive drive requires two gears for operation. Both gears are spur cut, and the drive equipment receives force from the energy output. The drive gear then transfers power to the driven gear.
Different Drive Systems
All drive systems require a drive gear. The drive gear is the primary transfer from the energy source to the driven gear. A belt from the drive gear to the driven equipment is a “belt driven” system. Another option may be the “chain driven” system. The “chain driven” program uses a chain from the drive gear to the driven equipment. The “gear drive” system is immediate gear-drive. The drive equipment is straight meshed with the powered gear.

Common applications
Gear drives are found in transmissions, back ends and transfer instances; sometimes the drive gear will be smaller compared to the driven gear. Different gear ratios allow the transmission to change to lower or more rpm speeds.

Automotive gear drive
Gear drives are applied to automotive engines. A “gear drive” usually identifies the timing drive; it replaces the common timing-chain with spur-cut gears. A gear drive is well known for the “whining sound” it emits. The teeth of the gears mesh jointly as the gears convert with the rotation of the engine. This keeps the engine in time.
