Direct drive motors offer industry-leading performance, zero maintenance, clean mechanical assembly, improved accuracy, higher throughput, better reliability, and smooth, quiet operation to suit a wide variety of machine design needs.

Mechanical transmission, such as gearboxes, timing belts, pulleys or lead screws, introduce backlash, mechanical losses and objectionable audible noise that can reduce machine performance, and increase machine size and weight. System maintenance is greatly reduced as mechanical parts prone to wear are removed, dramatically improving MTBF. Also improved are load acceleration, lower power consumption, reduced system inertia, and higher precision are major advantages that direct drive solutions can provide.
