Success Stories

  • Cement Mixer
  • Rock Crusher
  • In the construction industry, portable cement mixers work in a very harsh environment. To work efficiently and maximize production, drive systems must mix cement quickly and thoroughly, be easy to maintain and exist in a relatively small space. They also need to be durable enough to survive the tough conditions that exist in the construction environment.

    Megadyne designed a drive solution that met these requirements.

  • Applications in Construction and Heavy industry often require power transmission drive belts that can withstand severe duty cycles. High torque and high power transmission requirements are common due to the sheer size of the applications. A good example is the mineral and mining industry where belt-driven rock crushers are heavily used.

    These machines are designed to reduce large rocks into smaller rocks, gravel or rock dust. The v-belts used in these applications experience some of the most severe drive conditions possible. They are subjected to frequent peak torque shock loads and must be extremely durable to survive the tough conditions that exist in this challenging environment.

    Do you work in the mineral and mining industry? Is the quality of the belts you use good enough to survive this rugged application? Megadyne can help you with a high-performance drive solution.
