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

Varying demands require individual solutions. Whether you need robust gear components,, high-performance gear units or complex mechatronic drive systems: We manufacture systems and components that perfectly suit the customer's requirements.

In many cases we rely on high-quality components to the SPN standard as the basis that we then precisely modify to meet our customers' requirements. This is not only expedient from a technical point of view but also makes sense for economic reasons – and offers a wide scope to produce custom solutions.

With this principle – in conjunction with the highest possible quality and maximum reliability – we have already convinced many well-known companies around the world.
