Power Transmission Distributors Association

Oct 18, 2016


Timken is proud to be a member of the Power Transmission Distributors Association. PTDA is the leading association for the industrial power transmission/motion control distribution channel which encompasses a broad variety of mechanical, electrical and fluid-driven equipment such   as bearings, belts, drives, motors, gears, couplings, clutches and brakes, linear motion, and hydraulics and pneumatics. These products are found in manufacturing plants, assembly lines, in production processes—anywhere there is movement. Members are the companies that distribute and manufacture the components that keep your world running smoothly. 


Timken will attend the annual PTDA Industry Summit on October 19-22, 2016 in San Diego. This is where the power transmission/control industry comes together to solve problems and innovate throughout the channel. More than 550 delegates, representing over 230 companies, will network and conduct business. The PTDA Industry Summit provides information with an industry-specific focus on current events and economic trends.



Timken Belts will provide attendees a sneak peek at the new Drive Engineer App. Drive Engineer facilitates both new drive selection as well as existing drive analysis. Information provided includes horsepower capacity, drive limit warnings, service factors, pricing, hub loads, bushings, diameters, center distance and tensioning - everything needed to design a maximum-efficiency belt drive system. The new app will be available by the end of the year.
