Newly Re-designed P-Series Gearbox improves Backlash, Corrosion Resistance and Center Distance between Input and Outputs! 

Dimensional tolerances are an essential yet often overlooked measurement for mechanical parts. Tolerance is the amount of dimensional variance allowed within a piece. It is described using upper and lower bounds. The larger the range between the bounds, the “looser” the tolerance, while smaller ranges define “tighter” tolerances.

Mechanical components such as shaft collars, dowel pins, ground shafts, ball bearings, shaft couplings, gears, pulleys, and shoulder bolts require accurate tolerances to fit together correctly and function properly. Incorrect geometric tolerances may result in loose-fitting pieces or limited fit. As such, accurately determining dimensional tolerances for your applications is critical.
