I think that this should be "chain transmission" but, because it is a motor for a loom, I'm wondering if it might possibly be "warp transmission".

chain transmission
Explanation:
I would definitely use "chain transmission" in this case; It's a very generic term, there is no real context here and if I would guess the numbers behind the words correctly, they indicate transmission proportions and number of teeth on the cogs.
