As manufacturers throughout the US seek new ways to cut costs, improve energy efficiency, and comply with an ever-growing list of regulations from the Department of Energy (DOE) – electric motor driven systems are a large area of focus for industrial businesses. According to the DOE, manufacturing operations in the US spend $30 billion annually on electricity powering motor-driven systems, causing industrial experts to consider energy efficient synchronous drive units as an alternative to v-belt drive systems.
In addition to energy efficiency synchronous drives are also used:
- When an industrial application necessitates carrying more torque or horsepower
- To avoid the risk of expensive downtime & routine maintenance costs
- To reduce the overall size of the drive system
- With wash-down applications for food processing & beverage facilities utilizing Stainless Steel Sprockets & Bushings
- As OEM replacement & engineered systems
Curvilinear belt, bushings, and low-maintenance Synchronous Sprockets complete these powerful, efficient drive units. With it’s MPC® Sprockets, Martin Sprocket & Gear Inc. is a leading manufacturer of high-capacity Synchronous Sprockets.
MPC® Sprocket Features
MPC® Sprockets are manufactured in various sizes, dimensions and capacities to meet a variety of industrial requirements. This includes a wide range of loads, speeds, and demanding applications such as blowers, conveyors, pumps & mixers.
Martin stocks these sprockets with reboreable stock bores as well as Taper Bushings, producing a positive, press fit to shaft. The MPC Sprockets are also available made to order with a QD style bushing or other adapters.
Designed to run in today’s higher horsepower applications, these Synchronous Sprockets provide a relatively quiet alternative to other low-gear, high-torque applications. In addition to less noise, MPC synchronous drives require less maintenance without the need to retention & lubricate the drive.
