The RD Nuttall Company was founded by Mr. R.D. Nuttall in 1887 with one gear cutter, five men and a combined capital of $500. From this modest beginning, it was Nuttall that made one of the most significant contributions to the field of gear engineering: single helical gears. Today, it is the only company that specializes in providing complete packaged drive assemblies of both mechanical and electrical components.
Nuttall manufactures vertical and horizontal drives, speed reducers and speed increasers, cast iron and fabricated steel housings, flange mounted and scoop mounted gearmotors, and they can provide a custom enclosed gear drive to suit any special requirements you may have. Nuttall coordinates your entire drive package including reducer, and motor mounted on a bedplate with couplings, coupling guards, backstops, chain and/or belt drives, clutches, shoe or disc brakes and auxiliary lubrication consoles.
