In the bevel gear product sector, Klingelnberg develops and produces a wide range of gear components and is the global market leader in the production of large spiral bevel gears. From standard solutions to high-tech applications – for the aerospace industry and Formula 1, for example – Klingelnberg offers its customers tailor-made gearing solutions. Beside production-related activities, the range of services also includes engineering services such as bearing-pattern optimization, calculations, design and simulation of gear components, and determination of static and dynamic factors of the complete system.
In 1923, Klingelnberg was the first company in the world to begin made-to-order production of bevel gears using the continuous hobbing method at its site in Hueckeswagen, Germany.
A high level of innovation and close partnership with customers and suppliers have constituted a tried-and-tested success model ever since. In 2008, the Drive Technology Germany division was moved from the original plant in the center of Hueckeswagen to the Winterhagen West 2 industrial zone, located approximately five kilometers away. Today, spiral bevel gears with diameters up to 3,000 millimeters are manufactured there – using state-of-the art methods.
