Our Philosophy

Prime Drives BoothAt Prime Drives we are dedicated to the art of precise rotary motion. We design, engineer and manufacture products that provide power, feedback and mechanical support for rotational applications. All of this in a single package that can be easily integrated into your system.

We realize that all too often designers are forced to adapt their designs to components that are commercially available. The foundation for Prime Drives direct drive motors and rotary geared tables is a focused adherence to a “design for flexibility”. Empowering your designers with flexibility results with a better system design in a shorter amount of time. At Prime Drives we believe our product should adapt to your requirements, not the reverse.

Our Quality

Prime Drives has developed and implemented a quality management system which demonstrates our ability to provide engineered products that meets or exceeds our customers stringent requirements. Our Quality Assurance procedures address customer satisfaction through the effective application of the quality system, including continual implementation and the prevention of nonconformity.

Our quality system complies with the international standard ISO 9001 (2000).

Our Abilities

Our direct drive technology enables us to reach absolute accuracies as low as 1 arc-sec with resolutions as high as 4,736,000 post quadrature counts per revolution while delivering as much as 3,000 watts of power on our standard product offering. A high precision crossed roller bearing for support, our direct drive motor supports as much as 3,000 N-m of moment load and 1000 N of axial load.

To further reduce development time while increasing design reliability we provide all the tools your designers might need to specify and integrate our motor into your application. Online access to winding data via user friendly spreadsheets allows your engineers to pick just the right winding. A library of 3D CAD models speed up the time your designers need to integrate our product into your system and of course, our engineers are always available to answer any technical questions your designers might have.
