Nidec Graessner – Engineering

Driven by your requirements

Our engineering and special manufacturing techniques have helped us become precision manufacturer of tooth systems and bevel gearboxes for more than 60 years, as well as specialist in special gearboxes. For us, individual solutions are standard. And instead of offering expertise that‘s confined to certain areas, like pure development for instance, we offer comprehensive know-how in all relevant areas – from the specifications and the first sketch up to the manufacturing of the zero series including intensive test operations. Our expertise also extends to a special in-house developed workflow management system: for optimal processes between all areas involved and the customer. Our quality management system thus guarantees highest quality and cost certainty.

Four examples illustrating one principle: highly individual special gearboxes

We offer a production-compatible design, specially adapted to the customer‘s applications, with innovatively designed drive sections, including planetary, spur gear, bevel and worm gear stages. We are driven by the desire to support our customers in the new development and optimisation of their tooth system designs through the innovative and sustainable development of special gearboxes.
