Danaher Motion Entries

  • ►  Bearings • Linear Bearings 

    For: Entry

    There are many different types of linear motion bearings and which can be broken down into either rolling-element or plane bearing varieties.

    Danaher Motion is a manufacturer of linear bearing products, including inch and metric ball bushings, and specialty products for very high load capacities and contaminated environments.

  • ►  Power Transmission • Clutches & Brakes 

    For: Entry

    A clutch is a device that provides driving force to another mechanism by connecting the driven mechanism to the driving mechanism.

    Danaher Motion makes wrap spring clutches and brakes which feature low power consumption, high torque capacity per unit size from 25-5,000 pounds/inch, and speeds up to 1750rpm as well as friction clutches and brakes.

  • ►  Power Transmission • Gearheads & Gearboxes 

    For: Entry

    Use a rotating power source to another device using gear rations. When transmission have multiple gear rations, the gearbox switches the gears.

    Danaher Motion manufactures a variety of gearheads including true planetary gearheads used on high precision motion control applications that require a high torque to volume ratio, high torsional stiffness and low backlash. Models are available from three series, the ValueTRUE Series, UltraTRUE Series and the EverTrue Series.

  • ►  Motion Control • Drives • Variable Frequency/Adjustable Speed Drives 

    For: Entry

    Variable Frequency/Adjustable Speed Drives

    Danaher Motion makes AC variable frequency drives and adjustable speed drives, fractional to 40 HP, offers 115, 230, 380, 415, and 460 volt inputs, supports multiple motor applications, and are simply installed cost-effective alternatives to DC drives.

  • ►  Motion Control • Actuators 

    For: Entry

    Mechanical devices that introduce motion. Types include pneumatic actuators, hydraulic actuators, linear actuators and piezoelectric actuators.

    Danaher Motion offers a wide variety of actuators and systems of various stroke lengths and load forces, in combination with their AC and DC controls and motor transmission combinations. Their linear actuators are available with standard and customizable stroke lengths up to 915 mm (36 in), and can provide full load forces as high as 8800 N (2000 lbf).

  • ►  Motion Control • Ball Splines 

    For: Entry

    Type of linear motion bearing used for nearly frictionless linear motion while allowing the member to transmit simultaneous torque.

    Danaher Motion manufactures Thomson precision ball spline systems. They feature high speed, anti-friction linear motion under high torsional loads, and are reliable under varying operating conditions. Resisting radial displacements and requiring smaller forces to achieve axial displacement of the spline are two of the features these ball spline systems offer. Applications include helicopter motor couplings, translating dirve shaft couplings, non-swiveling telescoping struts, honing machine and drill press spindles, workhead and table ways, and remote and robot handling machines.

  • ►  Motion Control • Linear Shafting 

    For: Entry

    Shafting is a linear drive component that is critical for motion transfer in motion control systems and machinery.

    Danaher Motion is a manufacturer of linear shafting.  The 60 case shafting comes in a variety of material types and diameters.  Shafting can be configured either mounted or delivered pre-assembled.

  • ►  Motion Control • Ball & Lead Screws 

    For: Entry

    Ball screws are mechanical devices that translate rotational motion to linear motion while maintaining a low level of friction.

    Danaher Motion offers a wide variety of standard lead and ball screw technologies. They can customize to just about any application requirement. A wide range of ball screw products including rolled and ground thread screws in both imperial and metric sizes.

  • ►  Motion Control • Actuators • Linear Actuators 

    For: Entry

    Linear Actuators

    Danaher Motion produces linear actuators and precision linear actuators designed for high and low power industrial and precision applications. The linear actuators are available in a number of stroke lengths and as AC or DC models. The precision linear actuators feature mounting flexibility ranges from rigid, externally-guided, supported loads, and pivoting loads.

  • ►  Electrical • Motors & Motor Controls • Motor Drives 

    For: Entry

    Motor Drives

    Danaher Motion manufactures a variety of easy to install AC variable frequency motor drives from fractional HP up to 40 HP for multi motor and general applications.
