By adding French company Parvex to its group, Brook Hansen now offers its range of AC and DC servomotors, positioning systems and encoders in the UK. Flexibility, reduced design time and machine cost are claimed.

Brook Hansen has also expanded its S3 range of geared motor units with the addition of SK3 helical-bevel right-angle models in eight sizes between 0.12kW and 90kW. Torque ratings range from 440Nm to 20,000Nm and a 1250:1 reduction ratio can be achieved by using combined units.

Benefits listed include the ability to accommodate high overhung loads, higher output torque from a given size and a wide variety of options to meet customer needs.
