Old to New:
One nice thing about working in a company that has been around for over sixty years is seeing different technologies working in harmony. Busada has never purchased used equipment but has been careful to maintain equipment long past its expected lifetime.

More on this later. . .


Here, we have our #4 line (Prodex 1-3.4”) old Veridrive belt reducer that has received the end of its days.

And . . . a few weeks later, back in production with a new (and quiet) Emerson AC reduction drive.

And off to scrap, but this WW II vintage drive is not forgotten for over fifty years of service!
