Composite Worm Gears Increase Efficiency and Wear Life in Tough Applications

Closter, NJ: Power-Core(TM) composite worm gears from Intech Corporation replace industry-standard bronze gears in demanding operations to increase transmission efficiency with quieter, longer-wearing performance. A 1,000 hour test comparison that measured gear performance between the Intech Power-Core gear and a case-hardened ground steel worm gear attests to the ability of the material to...

Rollers and Cam Followers offer alternative to metal rollers.

Self-Lubricating Power-Core curved, U- and V-shaped rollers will not wear out rail, and achieve noise reduction of 6-10 dBa over metal rollers. Precision machining provides minimal run-out, while tire material absorbs shock to provide smooth rolling motion and is resistant to chemicals and corrosion. Power-Core rollers operate in temperatures ranging from -60 to +140°F and are suitable for...

Composite Roller exhibits low rolling resistance.

Non-hygroscopic Power-Core roller, with integral roller bearing, runs quietly and absorbs vibration and shock without placing undue wear on rail. Snap-in design ensures snug bearing fit, and composite material features integral elasticity that provides structural resistance to developing flats under static loads. Roller retains dimension and tight bearing fit in all weather conditions. Roller to...

Rollers offer non-lubricated performance.
Material Handling & Storage

Rollers offer non-lubricated performance.

Power-Core(TM) rollers feature crystalline structure that is resistant to flow under static load and does not absorb moisture. Rollers and cam followers retain bearing fit from -40° to +160°F, retain elasticity in sub-zero temperatures, and reduce noise. Assembled from precision-machined plastic tires, rollers are offered with load capacities from 50-230 lb. Trolley assemblies feature...

Hybrid Gears solve noise and premature failure issues.

Power-Core(TM) Gears feature crystalline, non-hygroscopic, composite material that is gravity-cast around metal core. Gear teeth are hobbed into outer plastic portion of gear material. Bore machined into metal core secures temperature-resistant, metal-to-metal shaft connection. Metal core helps restrain thermal expansion of plastic portion of gear. It comes in carbon steel, stainless steel, or...

Composite Wheels operate in clean rooms.
Fluid & Gas Flow Equipment

Composite Wheels operate in clean rooms.

Power-Core wheels eliminate possibility of metal particulate contamination in clean room operations. Composite wheel is comprised of two components: machined plastic tire and roller bearing. Tire material has high resistance to flow under load and retains tensile and flexural strength as well as dimensions in shock load applications. Bearings use clean room approved grease. Wheels eliminate need...
