- There also are known friction drives with constant speed ratio.
- Noise and the constant need for lubrication are just a few of those problems that our new friction drives have eliminated.
- The result is dramatically improved pointing and tracking capability which is far superior to a conventional worm drive and the equal of a more expensive friction drive.
