Gears on the Firing Line
The article "Gears on the Firing Line" appeared in the November/December 1998 issue of Gear Technology.
Air compressors are a good example of industrial machinery with components that rotate at very high speeds, up to 80,000 rpm. They are subject to very high rotational forces and often variable loads. Strong, high-precision gears for the power transmission trains that drive the impellers are critical components of machinery operating under such conditions.
