- Offer Profile
- Driving and open or
closed-loop control are areas where maximum precision is a must.
Products made by WITTENSTEIN alpha set benchmarks worldwide – in mechanical
engineering and drive systems. From low-backlash planetary gearheads through
servo right-angle gearheads and complete drive units to cymex® – our
comprehensive engineering software – or technical consulting expertise,
WITTENSTEIN alpha pushes back the boundaries of precision. This precision is
not only a vital yardstick; it's also the most important attribute of all
our products and services.
- An unbeatable combination – WITTENSTEIN alpha drive
A flexible and variable solution made up of a series of innovative elements
– modern servo motor and transmission technology, a rack and pinion offering
unprecedented precision and a linear system. WITTENSTEIN alpha drive systems
deliver multiple benefits by combining several innovations based on a
modular design principle.
- WITTENSTEIN alpha low-backlash planetary gearheads will
take your breath away.
As an engineer you'll be just as excited as an entrepreneur for whom
efficiency, productivity and reliable processes are top priorities.
Precisely the right angle – servo right-angle gearheads as powerful
Every manufacturer of flexible, top-quality machines that provide optimal
functionality makes very exacting demands on the drive technology: maximum
dynamics and power density, minimum physical volume and long inspection
intervals, extremely quiet running and a robust design, easy commissioning
and freedom from maintenance.
Smart additions for efficiency and intelligent performance
Our thirty years experience in drive technology are your guarantee of
optimum system performance whatever your application.
Gearhead, accessories & consulting from one supplier
The combination of low-backlash planetary gearheads and smart accessories
adds up to integrated drive concepts that form the backbone of your
- Reliability throughout the powertrain
- Premium quality components
- End-to-end advisory services
- Turnkey delivery
- Core competencies united in a truly unique system
Thirty years experience in the areas of transmission systems, gearing technology and the design and sizing of complete powertrains have gone into the development of WITTENSTEIN alpha's new rack-and-pinion systems.
The outcome: rack-and-pinion systems that redefine the market standards for feeding forces, power density and rigidity.
Mechatronic system solutions
More productive – more efficient – more precise
Plus points for your machinery and plant: a low moment of inertia for the
actuator and high rigidity in the powertrain guarantee maximum precision and
dynamics. For a decisive increase in productivity.
Low torsional backlash plus an output bearing with high tilting rigidity
plus a gearhead pinion integrated in the motor shaft – all of this adds up
to a smaller motor, reduced energy consumption and lower costs for
investments in the powertrain as a whole.
Minus times minus equals plus: the low operating noise achieved thanks to
the helical toothing and optimal rangeability improves the precision of your
machinery and equipment. The result – truly efficient products.
Stage and lifting technology
- Successful market development
The products in our traditional elevator drives range are meanwhile also
used in stage technology as well as in lifting applications in general.
- Today, intelligence is an absolute must in industrial
applications. Particularly in mechatronic drive technology, revolutionary
solutions have been implemented thanks to state-of-the-art sensor
technology. From high-quality sensors for drive components and
custom-specific sensor solutions, through to engineering services.
Whether integrated in the gearhead or as modular solutions, sensors permit
the direct measurement, diagnosis and evaluation of process parameters, i.
e. all mechanical loads processed by the gearhead can be measured at the
- WITTENSTEIN alpha has various tools for sizing drives,
configuring and creating technical data sheets and downloading CAD files.
