Precision Roller Pinion Systems  
 Nexen Logo
Click to View Nexen VideoNexen offers an advanced new technology that revolutionizes linear motion control. The Roller Pinion System (RPS) is based on an innovative pinion consisting of bearing supported rollers and a unique rack tooth profile. This unique linear drive system provides very high positional accuracy, zero backlash, almost no cumulative error, unlimited length, very high speeds, 99% efficiency, high rigidity, low noise, low maintenance, corrosion resistance, and long life.
This opens up new machine design possibilities and provides the capability to achieve much higher levels of performance in machine designs.


High Precision Planetary Gearboxes 
Apex Logo 


The AD-Series servo gearbox has been designed for direct attachment to popular servomotors with nine advanced design features for better performance

Apex AD SeriesIndustry-leading gear performance is attained with our HeliTopo technology. Ease off of the tooth profile and lead crowning optimizes the gear mesh under load and achieves maximum tooth surface contact.

Helical gearing increases the tooth to tooth contact ratio by as much as 33%,Benefits include increased torque capacity , ultimate smoothness , lower backlash and decreased noise.
