A second sister company Reliance Precision Mechatronics was established in 2005 as the distribution arm of the business. In addition to distributing Reliance's existing standard range, the company aims to design and develop market focused, fully integrated mechatronic assemblies.
Standard Products: For over forty years, Reliance has provided a standard range of precision mechanical components from stock or on short delivery. These components include precision gears, lead screws, couplings, linear components, fasteners and gearboxes. This service allows design engineers to order in small quantities at stock prices in order to develop prototypes effectively. Dedicated manufacturing facilities enable larger quantities to be supplied for full production requirements.
Cool Muscle - Cool Muscle fully integrated motors. Reliance's servo motion control package combines an intelligent driver with a 32 bit RISC CPU, a magnetic encoder and power management to give an all in one, compact and simple motion control solution.
Racktuator® - The Racktuator® tubular rack actuator enables fluids, tubes or wires to be passed through the assembly, reducing the risk of entanglement, and keeping the system tidy. This along with the compact, lightweight design makes the actuator ideal for medical or scientific applications such as:-
. Sampling machines
. Pick and place machines
. Dispensing machines
. Specimen analysis
. Reagent testing
Reli-a-flex® - Flexible couplings. The Reli-a-Flex flexible coupling has high torsional stiffness, low kinematic error and long life. In comparison with a spiral beam coupling the Reli-a-Flex coupling achieves up to: .
.16 times greater torsional stiffness
.12 times less transmission error
.12 times less bearing load
This along with unsurpassed reliability makes the Reli-a-Flex flexible coupling an excellent choice for accurate measuring and responsive precision motion control in many applications. Unlike any other one piece flexible shaft coupling on the market, with its unique patented double slit pattern, the Reli-a-Flex coupling was specifically designed by Reliance Engineers because no other coupling met the exceptionally demanding performance criteria required for their own motion control solutions.
