Drive Lines have established themselves as partners to some of Europe’s biggest Power Transmission component manufacturer, serving markets in the UK and Ireland.

The standard range of highly popular screw jacks, gearheads, brakes & clutches and linear motion is now added to with R+W state of the art couplings and torque limiters, ADE-Werk Linear Actuators and additions to our Graessner range.

Drive Lines can offer the complete solution and is a one stop shop for Power Transmission and automation requirements.

MS- Graessner has launched the KS TwinGear bevel helical gearbox. This gearbox impresses by its high performance and accurate precision. With its compact design this two stage gearbox with ratios up to 75:1 fits almost all applications. Torsional stiffness and minimal backlash lead to higher performance, even with high speed and high ratios.

Features include:

  • high accuracy at high ratios
  • suitable for high input speeds
  • extremely compact design
  • direct motor assembly or with coupling
  • high stiffness
  • low noise
  • output shaft for shrinked pinion for rack and pinion or hollow output shaft for shrink disc connection

As well as the Graessner range we also offer couplings and torque limiters from the well-respected R+W Antriebselemente.

R+W latest product is the LP2 precision disc coupling which consists of two precisely machined hubs with keyway connection, a spacer, and two flexible disc packs, allowing for a high level of misalignment compensation. 

The transmission of torque across the friction fit of the disc packs allows for a high degree of precision with zero backlash and minimal torsional windup.   Larger distances between shaft ends are easily accommodated by custom length spacers, and relatively high speeds can be achieved across those lengths. 

The all steel construction lends itself well to fatigue resistance and an infinite service life. 

The LP2 is available in 6 sizes with torque ratings ranging from 350 to 10,000Nm.  Together with the model LP1, LP3, and LPA, a very wide variety of industrial application requirements can be met, including all options and requirements for couplings in API 610 pump systems. 

If you have a high profile requirement and need a premium coupling, then we have the answer. Based on proven reliabillity, the R+W Black Label range are custom made, superior quality couplings for that special application.

Each R+W Black Label coupling is exclusively produced in line with our customers’ requirements‘ says Frank Kronmuller, Vice President of R+W Antriebselemente.

The Black Label range offers a life time warranty, and are supplied complete with a Certificate of Conformity and full test results. These high specification couplings also benefit from tightening torque labeling, dis-assembly system, balancing to minimum grade G6.3 and premium quality surface finish.

We realize that some of our customers may require further assistance when it comes to designing systems, when there is not the in-house expertise available.

Therefore we are pleased to announce we have teamed up with John Bennett of Bennett Design Solutions Ltd to offer just such expertise.  John has many years of experience in engineering design and development, and can work on projects either in partnership with us or directly contracted to our customer.

All we need is a description and sketch of the project from which John can then generate an initial concept at minimal cost which can be discussed and amended before detailed drawings are produced.  Of course, these can be supplied in various 2D/3D formats. 

Now, with our principal component suppliers, controls and design partners, Drive Lines can truly offer the complete solution!  Visit for details of John’s services.
