Forschung und Entwicklung

R&D Drive systems

As well as constantly striving to improve our existing product range, our development team also works on new solutions for and with our customers.

Main development areas

  • Increasing the wear resistance and fatigue strength of our products
  • Optimizing joint tribology to improve efficiency and minimize wear
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Improving noise levels
  • New materials, coatings and production technologies
  • Weight reduction by optimizing design and using alternative materials
  • Optimizing systems as a whole by looking at the overall chain drive system including sprockets, guides and tensioners


In keeping with our corporate philosophy, we specialize in delivering solutions for individual customer problems.
By collaborating with customers on feasibility studies, designing components and performing deformation and stress analyses, we can adapt existing designs to customers' individual requirements or develop entirely new chain drives.
