Our patented Prismatic VMS Rotating System

Our patented Prismatic VMS rotation system ensures a smooth turning of the prisms in your signs. This system guarantees each prism will remain perfectly flat, even after a decade of use, eliminating the need for any periodic calibration. Our patented drive system is self-lubricating and ensures a hassle-free operation, rendering maintenance almost negligible.


What our PVMS rotating system offers

Our system is maintenance free

Each prism has its individual transmission with a large blocking surface, every image is therefore positioned perfectly flat, even after 10 years of usage. And therefore, no periodical calibration or re-adjustment of prisms is required.

Our system is patented

To ensure smooth turning of the prisms in your signs we developed our unique patented PVMS rotation system, which is self-lubricating due to the addition of 15% PTFE (Teflon) on the driving parts.

Our system performs well in a wide temperature range

All bearings are sealed and lubricated with special high stability grease that will remain its viscosity over a very wide temperature range e.g. the grease will not get stiff at low temperatures.

Our system has an extremely long service life

We ensure minimal friction; the system starts without load, has a low starting torque and there is neglectable stick-slip in the mechanism. Our system guarantees hassle free operation and maintenance becomes negligible.
