Linear Motion

Precision Linear Motion

Nexen’s Precision Linear Motion technology is a combination of very high precision linear drive systems, compact harmonic gearheads, and high force brakes located at the drive motor or the linear guide system. Nexen’s Roller Pinion System (RPS), Harmonic Gearhead (HG), and Eclipse Servo Brake (SBP) can be combined to form a complete, very high precision, zero backlash drive and brake system.

Rotary Motion

Precision Rotary Motion

Nexen’s Precision Rotary Motion technology is a combination of very high precision rotary drive systems, high torque rotary brakes, and mechanical torque limiters, all delivering zero backlash. Nexen’s Roller Pinion Gears and Gear Segments (RPG) and fully integrated Precision Ring Drive Systems (CRD and PRD) drive rotary motion with very high precision and zero backlash.

Power Transmission

Power transmission requires torque and Nexen products provide torque in a wide variety of clutches, brakes, torque limiters and coupling products. Nexen air actuated products are more efficient and economical than electrically actuated products of the same size. Air, unlike electricity, does not generate heat during engagement. Less heat allows greater torque transmission and efficiency. Nexen’s simple designs are easy to use and maintain. When properly applied these products have a long service life making the cost of ownership much less than competitive products.

Tension Control Systems

Web control systems include tension control and web guide systems for the web industry.

About Nexen

Nexen Group Inc started in 1902 as a production company under the name Horton. Until 1951, the company focused on the production of industrial pneumatic couplings and brakes. Over the years Horton grows out with two separate product lines: industrial products (power transmission, motion control and Web control systems) and diesel vehicle parts. In January 1999, Horton was split into two separate companies in which the industrial product line continuing under the name Nexen Group, Inc. Nexen is the world’s leading manufacturer in the development and production of motion control, pneumatic couplings and brake technology.
