"Our engineers quickly and accurately translate customer information into a delivered belt drive solution," said Alex Vevasis, engineering manager, TB Wood's Belt Drives Group. "By applying our extensive knowledge and understanding of belt drive systems, we effectively shorten our customers design cycle."
TB Wood's engineers can also provide drive selection assistance by recommending the appropriate product family and the specific drive components for each customer application. A drive detail report is generated which includes performance ratings, installation parameters and a part list.
