At BSC, we specialise in power transmissions used in mechanical systems requiring moving parts, rather than systems that are powered electrically. This includes belts and sheaves, shaft couplings and drive components.
Belts, including synchronous drives and v-belts, can be used in many applications and work in combination with sheaves and pulleys. The main purpose of belts is to minimise slippage.
Shaft couplings are used to join two shafts together and are available in two types: flexible shaft couplings and rigid shaft couplings. Rigid shaft couplings are best used for applications where the shafts are positioned in a precise lateral and angular alignment. Flexible shaft couplings are best used for shafts are that are slightly misaligned.
Drive components include breaks, clutches, gears and variable speed motor drives.
