Sumitomo Machinery offering Easy-Grip

Sumitomo Machinery Corporation of America has announced the offering of their Easy-Grip keyless shaft-mounting system for smaller right-angle products (Hyponic, BBB-H, and Fortress).

Easy-Grip will significantly reduce greatly spares requirements by allowing a single unit to be used with multiple bushing kits in a variety of bore sizes. An added benefit is the ability to use shrink discs with commercial shaft tolerances, again saving money and boosting reliability. Lastly, an easier installation process in combination with the near elimination of fretting corrosion further enhances the customer experience.

In September of last year, Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd. (SHI) announced it had reached agreement to acquire the entire issued share capital of UK-based variable frequency drive manufacturer Invertek Drives Ltd. (Invertek).

Invertek is a global leader in variable frequency drives (VFD) and SHI is a leading global manufacturer and distributor of power transmission and control (PTC) equipment known under the Sumitomo Drive Technologies brand.
