As the name suggests, hand tools are operated by hand and don?t require electric power. These tools are ideal for low-production fastening, positioning, finishing, and driving applications and can easily be transported to jobsites. Common examples of hand tools include screwdrivers, clamps, knives, hammers, and wrenches. Power tools require electricity to operate. These tools are used in more heavy-duty applications where speed is a priority, or when working with larger workpieces. Common examples of power tools include power saws, nail guns, power sanders and routers, power drills, and hammer drills.
Motion Industries offers a wide selection of Process Pumps and Equipment for your liquid transfer needs. Process Pumps are designed to transfer product within your process. We have various types of pumps that cover a wide array of applications including but not limited to commercial, industrial, sanitary, and chemical.
Cutting tools, also referred to as cutters, are tools designed to remove workpiece material?typically metal?using one or more cutting edges. They are either single-point tools, such as turning and boring tools, or multi-point tools, like end mills and drill bits. As the name suggests, single-point tools have one cutting edge, or chip-producing element. These tools are commonly used in lathes to perform planing and shaping operations. Tool bits are examples of single-point tools. Multi-point tools have more than one cutting edge. These tools are used in holemaking and milling operations.
Hydraulics are machines designed to operate through fluid power. They transfer force using a liquid, most commonly oil, and cover a wide range of applications from jobsite excavators to commercial aircraft. Used across a spectrum of industries, hydraulics are often preferred because the incompressible oil allows large amounts of force to be transferred with relative ease
Pneumatics are machines designed to operate through gas or compressed air power. Pneumatics cover a wide range of applications, most commonly in the form of power tools, air brakes in motor vehicles, and other devices like compressors. Used across a broad spectrum of industries, pneumatics are often preferred because of their relative ease of use and low cost. Common types of pneumatic products include compressed air cylinders, available in standard and miniature sizes for varying applications, and directional control valves, which control the flow of compressed air. Directional control valves are also found in hydraulic systems and are commonly available in two-way, three-way, and four-way designs.
Linear motion is motion that occurs in a straight line. Ball bushings are used on shafts and reduce friction in both axial and linear motions. Ball bushings can be self-aligning and offer good wear resistance and a low coefficient of friction. Pillow block bearings, also known as plummer blocks, are bearings encased in a housing designed to offer support to rotating shafts.

Mechanical power transmission refers to products used in systems with moving parts as opposed to systems powered electrically. These products include shaft couplings, chains and sprockets, belts and sheaves, and drive components
Bearings reduce friction between two objects, which allows moving parts to run smoother. Bearings are divided into two main categories: thrust bearings and radial bearings. Thrust bearings support axial loads, which are parallel to the axis of rotation, while radial bearings support turning shafts perpendicular to the axis of rotation. Depending on the application, there is a wide range of bearings to choose from. Common types of bearings include ball bearings, split bearings, and roller bearings. Bearings are also available in mounted, unmounted, and flange styles. Ball bearings are the most common type of bearing and are used in applications requiring support of smaller loads. Split bearings are ideal for hard-to-reach places and quick installation while roller bearings are suitable for heavier loads. Roller bearings are generally available in three styles: tapered roller bearings, cylindrical roller bearings, and spherical roller bearings. Key elements to consider when selecting bearings are outer diameter and the shaft diameter the bearing will fit.
