Pump Drives

(11 companies)
Pump drives take an input rotational power source and route it to hydraulic pumps via gears or other means. The pumps are mounted on the drive housing.
Linear slides are simple linear motion devices composed of a stationary base and a moving carriage. Linear stages are slides with a drive mechanism that provide controlled, precise positioning along a linear axis.

Line-shaft Spools

(7 companies)
Line-shaft spools are mounted to the drive shaft of a line-shaft conveyor. A belt transmits power from the spool to drive individual conveyor rollers.

Differentials and Axles

(38 companies)
A differential is a mechanical connection that translates rotational motion from a source to two axles. The driveshaft generally runs the length of the vehicle, from the energy input (a motor) to the energy output (the wheels). The axle of the driving wheels is split, with the driveshaft transferring motion through gearing arrangements to maintain a uniform direction and speed of the (live) axles. This arrangement is very common in rear-wheel drive cars and trucks, but is also employed in aircraft, production machinery and equipment, trains, and ships.

Servo Drives

(464 companies)
Servo drives provide electrical drive outputs to servo motors in closed-loop motion control systems where position feedback and corrective signals optimize position and speed accuracy.

DC Motor Drives

(680 companies)
DC motor drives act as the interface and power supply between a motion controller and a DC motor.
V-belts and V-ribbed belts are power transmission drive belts with a triangular or trapezoidal cross section. They are available in a variety of belt materials, reinforcement styles, and speed configurations.

Hypoid Gears

(42 companies)
A hypoid gear is a style of spiral bevel gear whose main variance is that the mating gears' axes do not intersect. The hypoid gear is offset from the gear center, allowing unique configurations and a large diameter shaft. The teeth on a hypoid gear are helical, and the pitch surface is best described as a hyperboloid. A hypoid gear can be considered a cross between a bevel gear and a worm drive.

Top Drives

(22 companies)
Top drives are suspended mechanical devices that provide torque to the drill string and serve as an alternative to the use of a Kelly drive or rotary table.

Data Storage Systems

(814 companies)
Data storage systems are used to store, protect and manage computer data. Many types of disk drives and tape drives are available.

Lift Tables

AC Motor Drives

(839 companies)
AC motor drives interface controllers to AC motors. They match the control signals (voltage and power levels) as well as the signal type (analog or digital). They also provide power conversion, amplification, and the sequencing of waveform signals.
