Parts for treadmills
The treadmill, is a cardio machine that simulates the movements of walking and running. It is an excellent piece of equipment for burning calories, improving performance, and improving cardiovascular health.
In this article we intend to address the theme of fitness treadmills, not from the point of view of the physical exercise that is assumed, but from the perspective of the machine that it is. And as such, it is made up of various electrical, electronic and mechanical parts and components.
From the outset, we can divide the equipment into 2 distinct parts: upper and lower. At the top is the electronic control, and at the bottom the electrical and mechanical control. Below we present a representation of a fitness treadmill, and indicate its main pieces.
Deck or board
Caps / Tuning
The parts that make up a treadmill have different wear and tear and therefore have a different durability. That is, some components need more attention and care. Although it is known that these are parts that wear out faster, and therefore need to be replaced more frequently. What are these parts?
Any part or component can break down or be damaged, however we know that running belts, motors, controller boards and decks are the components that present the highest frequency of problems resulting from use. However, a treadmill that has one or more of these components damaged is not “doomed” to recycling. It is possible to recover the equipment by replacing the damaged parts and continue to rely on it for longer.
Find out a little more about these components:
Running belts can have varied measurements either in length or width, since there are many brands and models of treadmills, whether from the professional line or the domestic line. They can be custom-built and therefore become compatible with all brands and models.
The motors can be of speed or incline and exist for the most varied types of treadmills, whether professional or domestic. To choose the right one, it is very important to take into account the specific information of each brand and model.
To choose the correct board, it is very important to take into account the specific information of each brand and model, as there are electronic boards for the most varied types of treadmills, whether professional or domestic; with 220 to 240 V input and with 110 V input.
Decks can have varied measurements, whether in length, width and especially in thickness, since there are many brands and models of treadmills, whether from the professional line or from the domestic line. They can be custom-built and therefore become compatible with all brands and models.
