P.I.V. Drives is a company with an 80-year tradition in the production of drive technology. Today it is a world-renowned company for the production of technologically advanced mechanical gear units, built on the modular principle, as well as gear units that are not catalog products but are manufactured according to customers requirements. With the merge in the year 2002 into the Brevini Ridutori group, the range of products expanded with the planetary gear program.
Prior to the use of servo motors and frequency converters, the principle of mechanical P.I.V. variators with lamellar chains was famous for stepless speed control.
Technological perfection and precision of manufacturing the links of the variation lamella chain gave a guarantee of reliable, precise and long-lasting operation wherever the stepless change of rotational speed was a condition of technological processes. Many systems with P.I.V. variation circuits operate for decades without major maintenance needs.
