About Conic Systems

Conic Systems, Inc has been providing world class harmonic gearing systems, and controls for over fifty years.

Since 1968, when we introduced the first harmonic gearing differential to the printing industry, our company has been focused on providing the highest quality, longest lasting harmonic gearing systems, and gearboxes to customers around the globe. Today, our product lines include harmonic servo gearheads, speed changing and phase shifting harmonic differential transmissions, harmonic gearing component sets, and a wide array of industrial control modules. We also offer custom solutions, repair, replacement, and rebuilding services for Conic and all brand harmonics.

In 2004, we acquired Datatran Labs and expanded our electronic controls line to incude a wide array of motion and fluid power control components.

Our manufacturing facilities are in Port Jervis, Orange County, NY approximately 30 minutes from Stewart International Airport and 1.5 hours from Newark Liberty Airport.
