our manufacturing technologies

SPN Schwaben Präzision is the technology-independent drive designer. The innovative manufacturing technologies used underline the drive to always manufacture at the highest level. Careful selection and implementation of the relevant technologies increase the competitiveness and profitability of the company.

This enables us to develop new products to meet the needs of our customers and the market.


SPN is the high-performance manufacturer of drives, gearboxes and gears.

Our production site in Nördlingen impressively reflects this in its machinery.


We know gears inside out. Even in the early days of SPN Schwaben Präzision, gears were manufactured for watch production. We use the latest technology to ensure the highest precision of our parts.

Sodick ALC 600 wire-cutting machine

Component height: up to 340 mm 
Taper angle: up to 45°


Sparks are generated by a sequence of electrical voltage pulses, which lead to material removal. Wire EDM is often used to create complex shapes and contours in metal that are difficult to achieve with other processes. Very high accuracies and surface qualities can be achieved.
