Press release | Challenge accepted: Nabtesco delivers brilliant solutions for every drive application

Pioneer, innovator, pillar of strength: Hardly any other gearbox manufacturer can match Nabtesco in terms of precision, quality, innovation and reliability. The key to success? Progressive thinking, willingness to invest, customer proximity and a broad product portfolio. This is how Nabtesco reliably contributes to the growth of its customers, also in challenging times.

The manufacturing industry currently faces numerous challenges – from supply chain problems, high energy costs and raw material bottlenecks to issues such as personnel shortages, digital transformation and sustainability. Fortunate are those who have a strong partner at their side in such strained times. As a globally operating gear specialist Nabtesco is aware of the responsibility toward its customers and continuously expands the company’s future capabilities and performance with foresighted, well-directed and sustainable investments in innovations, facilities, infrastructure and employees.

Comprehensive product portfolio
Whether in robotics or mechanical engineering: Wherever exact positioning and absolute reliability are required, the company’s high-performance precision gearboxes are the first choice. The portfolio, which comprises highly integrable component sets, user-friendly servo gearboxes, ready-to-install gear units, robust rotary indexers and compact hollow-shaft gears, fulfils virtually every requirement. A fully integrated, decentralised drive unit with a Mecanum wheel, as well as condition monitoring concepts for future real-time monitoring of robots round out the product range.

Meanwhile, more than 10 million cycloidal gears are in use worldwide. These gear systems owe their success to the cycloidal design. Force transmission by means of cams and rollers ensures high efficiency, exceptional resistance to shock loads (up to 500 % of the rated torque) and minimal backlash throughout the entire service life (hysteresis loss of 0.5 to max. 1 arcmin).

Future outlook
Nabtesco also sets the highest standards with respect to availability, dependability and delivery reliability. For more than 35 years the company has been a virtual pillar of strength, reliably supplying innovative industrial drive solutions as a major factor in boosting productivity and lowering costs. To continue meeting the increasing demand, the cycloidal gear specialist currently is substantially expanding its production capacities with the construction of a new factory in Hamamatsu, 250 km southwest of the Nabtesco Corporation’s headquarters in Tokyo – which will double the annual production capacity to two million precision gearboxes by 2026.
