The need for producing more energy increases with our rising need for commercial, industrial, and residential space. In North America (including the U.S., Canada, and Mexico) alone, power transmission market estimates at a whopping $70.4 billion, according to a recent report. In any industrial facility, turbines and motors are used to produce rotational mechanical motion to perform different kind of tasks. The industrial power transmission market works with basic power transmission open-drive products like belt drives, chain drives, gear drives and each has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. In this post, we will look into the pros and cons of these components of power transmission technology.
