The Corliss engine drove some 5 miles (accounts vary) of overhead line shafting
that ran throughout the hall and provided power to an estimated 8,000 machines.
Integrating the expansion shaft servo couplings into R+W's line shafting
allows for easy synchronization of parallel actuators in cases where the load is wide enough to require the dual support.
Multiple independent servomotors provide electronic line shafting
capable of automatic re-registration or die-to-die synchronization.
