Drive technology

Drive Technology - drives your machines and systems at peak performance

Drive technology refers to the understanding of a technical area where engines, electric motors, or an equivalent, power up or produce complex motion sequences by transmission of force or movement. In automation, smooth interaction of different drive components is essential.

Drive Technology - different systems


  • Direct drive
  • Decentralised drive

Direct drives operate without components such as gears or clutches, in which case the force transmits directly to the system. In order to ensure an accurate and effective system operation, direct drives require well-designed pilot control with respect to speed, acceleration, and torque. Most drives, however, are part of a more complex system of machinery and driving elements, called decentralized drives. Drive technology is of great importance in many industrial applications, for example in transportation or in consumer goods.
