What is traction drive technology?

  • Gearless drive
  • Uses engineered traction fluid to cool and lubricate – as the driving and driven elements interface in the drive the traction fluid regularly changes from liquid-to-solid-to-liquid
  • Highly efficient with only 6-moving parts
  • No metal to metal contact

What are the benefits?

  • No slippage or lost motion between input and output shafts
  • Smooth operation infinite ratio due to gearless design
  • Long operating life (2-3 times standard gearboxes)
  • Dramatic reduction of motor torque ripple
  • Generates less heat than conventional drives
  • Low vibration and noise level
  • Low backlash
  • High reliability
  • No back driving
  • Input operating speeds to 15,000 rpm
  • 10 to 30 in/lbs of torque
  • Significantly less maintenance than conventional gearbox
  • Allows the use of a smaller motor which is more efficient at higher speeds
  • Standard NEMA sizes for easy mounting into new or existing applications
  • Optional overrunning clutch available
