The Sumitomo Drive Technologies’
Brand guarantees innovative, top quality products and services developed by the most advanced technologies. We strive to exceed the expectations of our customers, and continue of our customers, and continue to be your dependable partner in business

Exceptional Performance, Unmatched Reliability
The Sumitomo Cyclo® Drive is unsurpassed by any other in-line drive available in the market today. Cyclo®’s unique cycloid design has advantages superior to speed reducers using common involute tooth gears. Unlike gear teeth with limited contact points, the Cyclo® has two-thirds of its reduction components in contact points, the Cyclo® speed reducers and gearmotors are designed to withstand shock loads exceeding ratings of 500%, provide exceptional performance, reliability and long life in the most severe applications

Features and Benefits
Outstanding Reliability -2 Year Warranty
Cyclo® Drive speed reducers and gearmotors provide customers with a typical operating life of 20 year. We back this assurance with a two year warranty on all cyclo® products.
Smooth Operation and Low Noise
In comparison to the sliding tooth contact of the conventional gearing, the rolling contact of the Cyclo® system provides a reduced noise level.
Durable, Robust Construction
On top of the unique mechanism and design, Cyclo® housings are made of cast iron with the exception of our three smallest size models. All rotating elements are made from Chromium Molybdenum bearing steel, which have been hardened and ground.

Selection and Variety
Reduction Ratios from 1/3 to 1/119 are available for the single stage; for triple stages we offer ratios up to 1000000:1
Superior Design, Powerful Performance

All torque transmitting parts roll, The gear tooth profile of the Cyclo® enables the load to be distributed on number of teeth, thus not susceptible to tooth breakage.
