What do you mean by crowning of pulleys in flat belt drive ? State its use.
1. As no slip takes place, hence, perfect velocity ratio is obtained (Positive drive). 2. Chain drive gives high transmission efficiency (up to 98 %). 3. Chain drive may be used when the distance between the shafts is less. 4. Chain is made up of metal which would occupy less space as compared with belt or rope drive. 5. Ability to transmit power to several shafts by one chain. 6. Load on the shaft is less and long life.
