Design & Analyze Belt Drives with New Web Apps from Timken Belts
Drive Engineer™ is like having a Timken belt engineer always at your side.
PowerMiser™ makes it easy to get a grip on energy savings by upgrading to Carlisle Belts by Timken
The Timken Company (NYSE: TKR; www.timken.com), a global leader in bearings and mechanical power transmission products, introduces two new mobile/desktop web applications developed to assist in the design and maintenance of industrial belt drives.
Drive Engineer™ puts new drive selection and analysis in the palm of your hand, providing extensive results and comprehensive data for use on v-belt or synchronous drives. Belt, pulley and drive output details and specifications can be filtered, changed, saved and shared with the touch of a finger.
“We developed Drive Engineer to produce the most robust results in an intuitive, easy-to-navigate program,” said Brent Elliott, Timken application engineer and Drive Engineer designer. “Now, as a user-friendly app, it takes the program to the field and puts it in the hands of the end users who need it most.”
PowerMiser™, an energy savings calculator located within Drive Engineer, can also be saved as a separate application. A powerful, but simple app, PowerMiser uses drive parameters and local utility rates to identify estimated annual energy costs, savings and payback that can be realized by upgrading to Carlisle belts by Timken.
Additional resources including a complete product catalog, literature, and documentation can be found inside the apps providing details on products, belt tensioning, case studies and belt selection. The free apps can be accessed at driveengineer.com or powermiser.driveengineer.com.
