A personal sales engineer supports your inquiry from the concept phase to the drive component delivery and beyond. Your contact at Ruhrgetriebe is therefore always available to provide you with advice and support. For us, delivery reliability and customer satisfaction are just as much a matter of course as the highest quality and precision in our gear units. We love drive technology.

Our constructions convince by their carefully thought-out design and conscientious manufacturing. In order to maintain the high standard, we permanently invest in modern production plants as well as in the training and further education of our team.

On this basis, we are constantly developing our drive technologies. This enables us to guarantee our customers the best possible performance of our motors and gearboxes. As a manufacturer, we think long-term and value sustainability. For example, we were already offering small gearmotors with high efficiency classes long before this was required by law.

Worm gear boxes from Ruhrgetriebe: low-maintenance and reliable

Our worm gear boxes are suitable for both directions of rotation. They consist of solid, closed housings. The steel worms used are grinded and tempered. We manufacture our worm wheels from special bronze, which is characterized by excellent sliding properties. The premium components in combination with special gear fluid oils and greases ensure that the gearbox runs quietly and lasts a very long time. Relubrication and lubricant changes are usually unnecessary. Therefore, our gearmotors require minimal maintenance. If you need help with the selection, we will be glad to advise you!

Your drive system as a special customized product

Are you looking for a drive solution that cannot be covered by standard models? We develop the right gear drives for you. As an innovative worm gear manufacturer, our target is to find special solutions that are exactly tailored to your demands. We meet challenges with our extensive technical experience and creative mindset. We realize your customer requirements reliably, quickly and in the finest quality. Economic efficiency is always our focus. Depending on your requirements, we produce your customized product as a one-off or in series. Your expert contact will advise you personally and answer your questions quickly.

Trusted service and short delivery times

Our customers include many companies that we have been supplying with gear drive technology for decades. Even individual parts of older gearboxes and motors are still available from stock. This is part of our high-quality service standards. It also proves the superior manufacturing quality and durability of our products. We value the excellent reputation of Ruhrgetriebe and invest great commitment in long-term customer loyalty. This is reflected in our excellent service: you can expect a lot from us! We are particularly proud of our extremely fast delivery times. After your request, we will usually provide you with a quote on the same day.
