Gearbox Types

What is a Gearbox? A gearbox is an input device used within motion control. It is an enclosed system that transmits mechanical energy into an output device. A gearbox can modify the ratio of attributes including speed and torque, as well as the rate of rotation that is sent to the output...

Frameless Motors: What are they and where are they used?

Frameless Motors are something we offer here at Heason. Electric motors are often known as independent components within an application. A Frameless motor can be integrated directly into a machine for better efficiency. What is a Frameless Motor? A frameless motor does not include a shaft,...

Motion Control Industries

We can provide a wide range of products and systems to implement motion control solutions across many different industries  Motion Control can be defined as the process of measuring the movement, speed or force of individual processes within a device and controlling those movements to a...

Ball Screw and Lead Screw Differences

What are Ball Screws and Lead Screws? Ball screws and lead screws form part of our precision screw range. They are used to transfer rotary motion into linear motion. Ball screws and lead screws are threaded bars of metal with either a threaded nut (lead screws) or recirculating ball bearings...

Lead Screw Applications

What is a Lead Screw? A lead screw is a threaded bar of metal, like any other kind of screw. They have a threaded nut that moves along the screw generating sliding friction. This differs from rolling friction which other devices such as a ball screw may use. A rotational motion will turn the...
