Nabtesco, the largest precision cycloidal gearbox manufacturer in the world, now has a newer, larger facility in Farmington Hills, Michigan. To commemorate its growth as a major force for motion control in North America, Nabtesco has a grand opening, July 21, 2011. Their new building is at 23976 Freeway Park Drive; open house hours are 9 AM to 5 PM and walk-ins are welcome.
Business is exploding for Nabtesco according to Jason Lazar, North American Sales Manager. "We have been posting record sales months recently, and the new facility gives us better control over customer service," he said. "For instance, this new, bigger building provides most of our warehouse needs for the U.S. and Canada, streamlining logistics for shipping and handling in North America."
A member of Robotic Industries Association since 1999, robot users find Nabtesco products such as the RV Reducer used in hollow shaft and high torque models of major robot suppliers. These extremely rigid and accurate gear reducers are used in welding positioners and rotary tables as well.
As demand for wind turbines increases (often fabricated with robots), the need for lightweight and high impact-resistant drive mechanisms to control pitch and yaw is met by Nabtesco's YAW drive mechanisms.
Nabtesco is the largest precision Cycloidal gearbox manufacturer in the world and leads the precision gear industry by providing high performance reduction gears, hollow shaft gear heads and single axis servo-actuators and controllers. The company's precision equipment provides large torque, high-ratio and significant shock-load capabilities with extreme precision and very low backlash.
Nabtesco equipment is used to improve the functionality for a wide variety of applications - from satellite antenna and military/defense to robotics, semiconductor and welding.
For high quality and proven performance, Nabtesco is the preferred choice wherever precise motion is required. Nabtesco employs more than 4,000 people and has numerous manufacturing plants and sales/support offices around the world to ensure complete customer satisfaction.
