Globe motors are a series of compact heavy-duty radial piston air motors offering an exceptional range of control valve and output options. The motors are four or five-cylinder radial piston design with oil bath lubrication and are designed to develop greater power than other motors of equivalent size.
In 1968, Herb Stone pioneered and developed a compact hydraulic power unit utilizing an electric motor. Stone originated the interchangeable integrated-module hydraulic system. His concept was simple but powerful. It eliminated the need for complex and expensive power take-off pumps and drastically reduced the cost for hydraulic applications that required less horsepower.
Herb stressed Value, Quality and Performance in his power units, which is a virtue still shared at Stone today. Stone units use components that ensure long life and quality which customers expect from a market leader.
Stone offers one of the widest ranges of AC and DC power units in the industry. The power units are designed to solve a myriad of application requirements. There are tens of millions of Stone units in service today, serving markets around the globe. In fact, Stone personnel are strategically located in offices around the world to serve the global marketplace.
Stone’s application engineering department provides collaborative engineered solutions for whatever challenge your application presents.

As part of SPX FLOW Hydraulic Technologies, SPX FLOW Rail Systems manufacturers rail products for the UK and international markets, which include Hong Kong, China, Australia, Spain, Singapore and Ireland. With a dedicated team of engineers they design point operating systems to meet the demands for the International Rail Operations for both Conventional and High Speed applications.
Based on technology that saw a safe leak proof valve being developed in 1950's (in cooperation with British Rail), in the early 1960's a safety critical Hydraulic Power Pack was evolved for British Rail's new generation of Level Crossing Barriers.
Marylebone, London became one of the first stations to benefit from this technology in 1964.
Rail Systems success continued into the mid 1960's when a Hydraulic Power Pack was produced for the Clamplock Point Machine.
The company continued to develop and manufacture the Hydraulic Power Packs for both products until 1990's when manufacturing of the Clamplock Mechanism began.
Having become part of the SPX FLOW family in 2001, Rail Systems has recently transferred to a bespoke manufacturing plant in Dagenham, Essex where designs of equipment can be tested using a full size switch layout. State of the art technology is used to allow simulation of actual conditions.
All manufacturing takes place at the Dagenham Plant by highly trained personnel to the ISO9001-2008 Quality Standard. SPX FLOW Rail Systems
