The links on this page provide you with formulas to help in the sizing of drives. While these formulas should prove very helpful in getting you on the right track toward sizing or pricing a drive, there are many variables, such as coefficiency of friction, that cannot be accounted for exactly. Use these formulas to size drives, but be sure and consult your Simco rep before ordering materials.
