The first products produced by Balcrank were hand wheels and cranks used by the machine tool industry. The Cincinnati Ball Crank Company got its name from the production of ball-sockets and hand cranks and was commonly referred to as Ball Crank. In 1922, the company started making products in the lubrication field. In 1933, the Board of Directors voted to change the name Ball Crank to Balcrank, Inc.  ​
