The catalog itself includes over 31,942 off-the-shelf standardized metric, commercial and precision quality components including over 4,000 new products. The catalog is divided into 15 product sections, each with its own photographic and descriptive index. Major product groups include: gears, belt and chain drives, shafts, shaft accessories, bearings, couplings, universal joints, vibration mounts, hardware, linear motion systems, gearheads and speed reducers, right angle drives, brakes and clutches, motors and gearmotors, plus
miscellaneous components. There are over 4,800 metric gears offered along with 16,700 metric belt drives plus chains and sprockets in 5 different materials. All components in the catalog adhere to the following parameters: Module 5 gears or finer, 25 mm shafts or small and 15 Watt devices or less. Every component is identified using a meaningful alpha-numeric coding system which is explained in the catalog. Included with the catalog is a handy printed sheet of peel-off section divider tab labels which can also be customized by the user.
