Realizing ideas together

It's what we do

At Ruhrgetriebe, we have been producing drive solutions for industrial sectors since 1953.






The drive of a bottling plant in the clean room of a large company came from the Ruhrgetriebe pen. And the toy industry is also part of the customer base. The company’s portfolio also includes drives for stair lifts that enable people to overcome obstacles even in their later years.

With the help of geared motors, building bricks are made with them, allowing children to create creative landscapes. But smart gear motors from Ruhrgetriebe are also used in communicative machines for automated processes.

Wide range of applications

Applications & Solutions

The areas of application for Ruhrgetriebe geared motors serve a wide range of different industrial sectors. For example, a manure conveyor belt on a farm uses the geared motors to move excrement from livestock.

In total, the portfolio extends to over 50 industries. From conventional areas such as toolmaking, mechanical engineering and plant construction to automation, aerospace and medical technology, mechatronics and regenerative energies, Ruhrgetriebe has designed drives and moved ideas.
