Rubber & Plastics Industry Applications

SSD Drives has more than 30 years of experience solving drive applications in the RUBBER & PLASTICS INDUSTRY. Our complete line of AC, DC and servo drives are specifically suited for rubber and plastics applications, and we have the software know-how and products that will help make your next application a success. With today's high energy prices and incentives to save, it makes sense to get the most out of every amp with an efficient and up-to-date drive system from Parker Hannifin. Gear reducers can be inefficient and costly to repair, not to mention the down-time associated with a failure. Consider replacing them with a direct drive torque motor for energy savings and reliability.

Our experience includes:

  • Printing
  • Slitting
  • Accumulators
  • Winders
  • Tape Lines
  • Thermoforming
  • Grinders & choppers
  • Cooling Pumps & Fans
  • Extruders
  • Banbury Mixers
  • Injection Molding
  • Blown Film Lines
  • Nip Rolls
  • Palletizing
  • Chill Rolls
  • Coating
  • Embossing
  • Laminating
