Couplings

Couplings transmit torque between equipment and compensate for misalignment while damping systems vibrations. Learn more about R+W Couplings (not available in CA) and Helical Couplings (available in CA only)

Gearboxes

Gearboxes are used to multiply torque and reduce inertia mismatches. Can be inline with the motor shaft, or right-angle.

Ball Screws

Ball screws use ball bearings to eliminate friction between the nut and screw.  Ball screws are efficient, requiring less torque to create linear motion, and run at cooler temperatures.

Linear Bearings

Linear bearings use rolling elements to reduce friction. They can withstand very high loads and are very cost effective.

Linear Actuators

Linear actuators convert the rotary motion of a servo motor into linear motion.  They are ‘turnkey’ in that they combine linear bearings, ball screws or belts, etc into a single unit that is ordered as one part number.

Rotary Tables

Rotary tables are a very common application in industry, and can be electric or pneumatic. They typically have gearing built-in to assist with inertia mismatches.
