We offer a range of small light power transmission components, available from stock, together with the matching parts needed to assemble them into a complete drive system.
NEW: Power and Control Mains Power Supply Units and Batteries now available in a range of voltages. These units connect to our Motor Controller for simple motion control using our range of Planetary and Worm Gear Motors. More info
NEW: Miniature Couplings Aluminium Jaw Couplings for joining different diameter or misaligned shafts. Available from stock in a range of bore combinations. More info
Worm Gear Motors We now offer a range of permanent magnet Gearmotors with Worm Gearboxes to go with our Planetary and Spur type Gearboxes. With output speeds down to nearly 1rpm and output torques up to almost 1 Nm these compact (sizes from 6mm diameter) motors can be used in a variety of applications. More info
Pillow Blocks Aluminium Pillow Blocks, with ball bearings, enable shafts to be positioned and retained without the need to accurately bore housings for the bearings in the main structure of the machine/assembly. More info
Idler Pulleys designed for use as a back idler, on which the reverse (smooth) side of a timing belt may be run. It may be used on a belt drive installation, singly or in pairs:-
1. to provide appropriate tension on the belt where adequate adjustment of either the drive or the driven timing pulley is not possible.
2. to route the belt so that there is adequate wrap-round (tooth engagement) on a timing pulley.
Grooved Pulleys Manufactured in aluminium with grub screw fixings these pulleys are now available to suit our 3mm and 6mm diameter Round Belts. These pulleys can be used where a synchronous drive isn't required. More info
Flexible Plastic Rack Flexible rack in 0.8 mod pitch in lengths from 250mm to 2 metres. This rack can provide an easy to install rotational drive of up to approx 270 degrees for example on camera focus rings - we offer a fixing clip for this purpose. Compatible with our 0.8 Mod Spur Gears, it is also an economical solution where a large gear or a longer stretch of linear motion is required. More info
Pulleys and Belts Synchronous toothed belt and pulley drives with positive tooth engagement give reduced bearing loads and allow higher acceleration and torque transmission. Available in MXL (2.03mm) and 3M (3mm) tooth pitches. More info
