Buying Gear Drives? Try Gear ExpoBy Alex Cannella, Associate Editor
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.
