Motion is at our core

More than five decades ago, we developed the direct drive technology that enables some of today’s most remarkably innovative machines.

We helped engineers build the first self-contained artificial heart. Our end-to-end onsite engineering resulted in China’s first air-jet loom for manufacturing, and we’ve been a pioneer in hybrid motor technology for transportation for two decades.

Our infrastructure, our intellectual knowledge, our passion and experience are testament to our pursuit of motion excellence. And because of our heritage of customization, we see opportunities, not obstacles.

Every day, around the world, we push the boundaries of motion.

Here’s how we do it.
