3.0 1 Review SKU: RVI-10880Duration: 30 Minutes

When the normal operating speed of a motor is different from that required for an application, speed reducers, frequently called gear boxes or gear reducers, are often used to lower the speed. This interactive online course will teach you about the basic parts that all reducers have in common. You will learn common problems that go wrong with reducers and how to spot them early, before they become serious. You will also learn how to maximize the efficiency of reducers you work with and how to get them running again when things go wrong. You will also be taught what to look for during an overhaul. This course is part of a series of courses on basic mechanical maintenance. Additional courses in this series include:  Mechanical Maintenance: Basic Terms of Maintenance Mechanical Maintenance: Maintaining and Troubleshooting Gear Reducers Mechanical Maintenance: Maintaining V-Belts Mechanical Maintenance: Maintaining Flexible Drives: Roller Chain and Silent Chain Mechanical Maintenance: Maintaining Flexible Drives: Flat Belts, V-Belts, and Timing Belts Mechanical Maintenance: Couplings Mechanical Maintenance: Maintaining and Troubleshooting Brakes and Clutches

I Wish it had More Visuals

“When showing worn parts, it would be nice to show a good one to see difference. Or show normal wear to have a guideline of what's ok for newer people.”
