PTDA’s Hefty 6th Edition

Latest version of transmission/motor control reference bible is out

The Power Transmission Distributors Association‘s new handbook carries a lot of weight. That’s not surprising, seeing as it’s nearly 400 pages.

PTDA’s revised 6th Edition Power Transmission Handbook is said to be “the perfect primer to educate every member of your team,” according to the organization, which is one of the world’s leading groups for the power transmission/motion control industrial distribution channel, bringing together distributors and manufacturers.

Each of its seventeen chapters is devoted to a certain product or technology along with its various types and uses, followed by maintenance and diagnostic tips, basic application and selection criteria for said product or technology.

PTDA says the handbook will be useful as an excellent primer for new inside/outside salespeople; a go-to reference for more experienced employees; and an ideal resource to train customers on installation and maintenance.

Grab the updated 6th Edition with new enhanced content for continued relevance in power transmission/motion control product knowledge and basic application skills. With nearly 400 pages of text, charts, diagrams, drawings and photos, the handbook provides a “go-to” resource.
