Buying Gear Drives? Try Gear Expo

Buying Gear Drives? Try Gear Expo

Gear Expo is right around the corner, and that means that pretty soon all things gearing will be squarely in the spotlight. Custom gear manufacturing services, design software, gearboxes and more — you’ll be able to learn everything you need to know about who and what’s going to be at the show in our upcoming September issue, but until then, here’s a brief sneak peak of one specific corner of the show: gear drives.

ASI Drives

Booth 630

ASIDrivesASI Drives is a custom manufacturer of gear drives for battery-powered vehicles and equipment. They specialize in machines that carry between 400 and 2000 pounds, but have designed products for machines that carry between 50 and 6000 pounds and can produce between 50 watts and 1.5 kilowatts. ASI has decades of experience in gear design. They cut all their gears in-house to their specifications. They can streamline the engineering process by solving your engineering problems, saving time on your product launch cycle. They have a full understanding of the entire process, from sketches to production. ASI strives to be as flexible as possible in order to meet your specific needs. They are world leaders in gear drives and gear design.

ASI will be displaying its new shop bot, which will demonstrate their capabilities to design and build an AGV for your factory floor. The bot has a custom-built frame, with two wheels designed to minimize wear and one castor wheel for increased mobility. It’s been programmed to follow a path laid out by panels on the ground. ASI will also be bringing a number of product samples to Gear Expo. We’ll have products from our families of transaxles, wheel drives and right angle drives, along with some custom designs.
