Since its debut in 2004, the Drake linear motor series of internal, external, and universal thread and gear grinders have proven to be one of the most productive thread grinders ever. Because of its high stiffness and intuitive, simple to use PartSmart™ software, these linear motor grinders are setting new productivity standards in tap, worm, ball nut, gear, and gage grinding in both dedicated production cells and job shops.
