Customized drive solutions based on tried-and-tested standards – the spn principle

Different requirements demand individual solutions. Whether it's robust gearing elements, powerful gearboxes or complex mechatronic drive systems: we manufacture systems and components exactly to customer specifications.


In many cases, we use high-quality components according to the SPN standard as a basis, which we modify to fit our customers precisely. This makes sense not only from a technical but also from an economic point of view - and offers plenty of scope for individualization.

With this principle - combined with best possible quality and highest reliability - we have already convinced many renowned companies worldwide.

See for yourself - we have summarized some exemplary special gear units.
