We Make Rotating Machines

No belts. No gears. Experience the design freedom of continuously variable transmissions.

Companies across the globe are being driven to reduce fuel consumption, increase efficiency, and lower their carbon footprint. Achieving these objectives are becoming increasingly more difficult since engine and power conversion developers have already implemented many new approaches; however, further gains are becoming more challenging without new technologies.

Orbital Traction's Adjustable Speed Drive (ASD) is just that solution.

VAS 2231

Our patented technology enables manufacturers to implement unique and efficient ways to improve rotating machines that were previously not possible without our simple, compact, cost effective and efficient ASD. Explore the difference Orbital can make to your machine.


Orbital Traction Completes SBIR, demonstrates efficiency improvements.

Orbital Traction has completed their latest SBIR contract for the Navy. During this phase of the contract, Orbital designed and built prototype Fan Drive transmissions that verified the hardware met or exceeded the expected fuel economy improvements predicted by the mathematical models. The next phase of the program will be to demonstrate fuel efficiency improvements…
