Goodyear's BlackHawk Pd(tm)synchronous belt is made from the same premium materials as Goodyear's top-of-the-line Eagle Pd(r) belts. Combining best-of-breed technology with higher horsepower for the money, this high-performance belt provides a significant upgrade to Dayco RPP Panther, Browning RPP Panther, and TB Woods QT Power Chain sprocket profiles. As one example, tests have shown this reinforced, curvilinear, straight tooth belt lasts 3-4 times longer than the Dayco RPP Panther in Dayco Panther applications. It's also a reliable, economical, lower maintenance alternative to chain drives.

Goodyear's WhiteHawk Pd(tm) is compatible with Gates PowerGrip GT, Gates PowerGrip GT 2, Dayco RPP Plus sprocket profiles as well as other HTD/RPP profiles belts and sprockets. Suited for virtually every high-capacity synchronous application, it features a Universal Positive Drive (UPD) tooth profile with Hibrex(r) elastomer for increased hardness, twice the tooth shear, and greater abrasion resistance than the other belts in its class. It also has a higher horsepower rating than competitive belts, while its reduced drive width lowers belt and pulley costs.

Introducing Nook Industries' Actionjac(tm) Electric Cylinder 2D and 3D Drawings

**Year-End Business Checkup.**
Paul Rich, principal and business advisor for the Siegel Rich Division of Rothstein Kass, says, "The end of the year is a perfect time to 'inventory' how your business has done in 2003. Many business leaders should take this time to focus on what's next by thoroughly identifying areas in which their business can improve in order to poise their enterprise for the new year. They should develop a succession plan if that is something they have put off, review customer and vendor relationships, analyze cash flow, and appraise internal controls and many other valuable business processes that can get 2004 off to a good start."

**Companies Find Ways to Reduce Health Benefits Expenditures.**
Notes Paula Biskup, director of corporate communications at Budco, a marketing and business process outsourcing provider, "With the average expenditure for health care benefits for one dependent as much as $2,400 or more, companies are desperately seeking solutions to reduce their health care benefits expense. A viable solution is to institute a 'Dependent Audit' process whereby those individuals who are ineligible to receive coverage are identified. This can save an employer literally hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars."

No other system can accurately monitor shaft speed in extreme conditions
as well as Electro-Sensors. Visit us at:
