Amatrol’s Mechanical Drives 2 Learning System (97-ME2) covers the construction, operation, installation, and alignment of heavy-duty V-belt drives, synchronous belt drives, and heavy-duty chain drives. This system also delves into topics associated with the maintenance and proper operation of these drives, such as belt and chain selection, lubrication, couplings, and drive troubleshooting. The drive systems featured in this mechanical drives training system are utilized in countless automotive, agricultural, industrial, and commercial applications, so the advanced manufacturing career fields for learners using these skills are vast. This mechanical drives training expansion system requires the Mechanical Drives 1 Learning System (970-ME1), viscosimeter, and a computer.
The 97-ME2 consists of a coupling/sprocket package, belt drive components package, power transmission belt and chain package, a grease gun, various indicators, and a fastener kit. Learners will use these real-world components to practice hands-on skills, such as installing and aligning a backside V-belt idler, troubleshooting a V-belt drive system, using a grease gun to lubricate a pillow block bearing, and installing and aligning a silent chain drive system. Amatrol uses heavy-duty components that stand up to frequent training use and build the skills and competencies learners need to succeed in the workplace.
