Parcel Handling

Sumitomo gear reducers convey quality and efficiency, and are built to last. We supplied our first unit into a parcel handling facility back in 1974, and now we help move thousands of miles of conveyors each day.  When your customers demand reliability and on-time delivery, choose us to keep your operation moving.


Customized Gear Reducers

Parcel handling applications typically operate for long hours and moving a high volume of packages at high speeds. In applications worldwide—wherever there's a need to package, convey, hoist, rotate, index or just push—that’s where you’ll find our gear drives serving the Parcel Handeling Industry.

In this environment, you cannot afford breakdowns. With that in mind, many major courier services commit to using our speed reducers for their reliability and high-efficiency performance. We have a wide range of products to match your specific industry needs—or we’ll custom build it to the way you like it.

Parcel Handling Brochure

"We have over 20 miles of belt conveyors, some up to five feet wide, move the packages through a complex network at speeds to 400fpm. When you move those volumes at those speeds, you need to avoid a drive breakdown. We choose Sumitomo Cyclo® speed reducer because problems often associated with toothed gears are precluded."

"In our environment, it’s about reliability. The Cyclo® is the most reliable reducer in the market. With the Cyclo®, there is no catastrophic failure. They just begin to get noisy, allowing us to stand by the reducer and replace when it’s convenient to us. Its been a good partnership with Sumitomo all around, from the local salesperson, to the technical support, to the customer service in Glendale Heights."
