Long known for its double-enveloping worm gear the company is now eager
to explore a new era of industry. The company is developing products
for applications in emerging market segments.

“It’s remarkable, after eighty-five years, that we’re still finding new
and relevant applications for our double-enveloping gear design,”
states Bob Nichols, Cone Drive Product Manager. “We are also
experiencing more demand for our engineers’ involvement at the
front-end of projects, designing and integrating custom gearing
solutions for highly-specialized applications—from precise satellite
positioning to demanding conveying applications.”

To further celebrate its anniversary—and forward-looking philosophy--
the company is launching a new logo and brand identity system. “Our
eighty-fifth anniversary seemed like the perfect time to communicate
our positive momentum with a brand overhaul,” explains Nichols.

Using the new logo as its foundation, the Cone Drive 85-in. logo is a
temporary brand mark for use exclusively in 2010 to symbolize Cone
Drive’s 85th anniversary.

Later this year Cone Drive is also launching their new website
( <> ) with improved features
and functionality.< />
