_______ drive each machine is driven by its own separate motor with the help of gears and pulley.
Right Answer is:
Individual drive:- In “individual drive”, each machine is driven by its own separate motor with the help of gears, pulley, etc.
Examples: Single-spindle drilling machines, various types of electrical hand tools, and simple types of metal working machine tools and mechanisms.
- For driving heavy machines such as for lifts, cranes, shapers, lathes, etc., and for the purposes where constancy of speed and ﬂexibility of control is required, such as in paper mills and textile industry, the individual drive is essential.
- The individual drive is preferred for new factories, as it causes some savings in the cost of the superstructure which is much lighter and less expensive.
