Cotta speed increasers require rear supports and are designed to be driven clockwise facing the input shaft. Before recommending a speed reducer, Cotta’s engineering team needs to know your input speed, idea output speed, flywheel housing size, flywheel connection requirement, direction of rotation, and type of driven equipment.  If one of our pre-designed units does not fit your needs, then our engineering team will create a custom solution specifically for you. Cotta engineers have experience designing specialized speed increasers for satisfying a variety of requirements and options.
