Outstanding Qualities

The direct drive is our workhorse, it almost feels like there’s nothing this machine can’t do.  To begin with, it can work from as low and slow as 4 volts, all the way up to 12, and never be starved for power. This is because it uses a motor with plenty of torque where it needs it, thank Maxon.  Whatever grouping you want to run you can do it with low vibration and quiet, smooth operation.

Utility & Cleanliness

Because it’s maintenance free and warrantied for 1 year after sale you should never expect to factor in downtime as a hidden cost.  Compared to other direct drives it is the cleanest around.  It uses good old *disposable* rubber bands instead of tension gadgets that are hard if not impossible to clean.  Additionally, it’s enclosed as much as a direct drive can be which greatly reduces the amount of dirt that can get into or out of the machine.
