Drive Systems

Drives Systems pick up where Package Drive Equipment leaves off. A Drive System provides a solution to a customer’s process or product fabrication requirements. It is the most comprehensive drive offering and the area where we offer the most expertise.

Systems may require that we provide exacting speed, registration, position, tension, or torque control. Some complex systems require the full technical support of Parker SSD’s engineering team. Other projects are best provided on a local basis by trained third party control integration houses. We work with you to create a functional drive specification that is appropriate for your manufacturing needs.

For large projects the term “Drive Systems” may be a slight misnomer, as system requirements many times will include not just drives but, also Programmable Logic Controls, Process and Temperature Controls, a Supervisory Control Data Acquisition (SCADA) System for recipe control and overall process certification. Our system proposals detail all items and their function so there is no ambiguity in the scope of supply, nor project responsibilities. All drive systems proposals are completely engineered control solutions to match the customer needs.
