Gearboxes are used to adapt the speed and torque of motors so that they are suitable for the specific requirements of machines and processes.
Gearboxes made of high-performance plastic: lubrication-free, lightweight and shock-resistant
All drygear® joints are modular; they can be extended as required and integrated into existing systems. The drygear® gearboxes are especially popular for robot arms used in quality control or sorting. Gearboxes also come into play with rotary axes or sliding applications, pusher applications or format adjustments.

The drygear® gearbox technology uses plastic gears made of high-performance polymers. The gearboxes do not require any external lubricants. Maintenance is not necessary, so that the associated costs are eliminated.
Manufacturing by means of injection moulding or 3D printing guarantees cost efficiency and enables optimal use of the installation space due to unlimited geometrical freedom. Thanks to the flexible Apiro® modular gearbox system, the gearboxes can be expanded as desired and integrated into existing systems.
Our gearboxes do not require a single drop of lubricating oil. This benefits not only our users, but also the environment. Our tribologically optimised materials also generate less abrasion, which means less energy is needed.
Thanks to motion plastics®, drygear® plastic gearboxes impress with ultra-light materials. This results in much less noise and vibration. For you as an operator, plastic gears - for example in robots - lead to an application that is up to four times quieter.
Gearboxes that function reliably in either particularly warm or cold environments? The drygear® gearbox technology products can withstand almost all conditions. We also have gearboxes and motors in our product range that are suitable for extreme temperatures from -30°C to +180°C.
