Production with highest precision

Quality from home" is the motto of Stöber.

The park machines includes renowned brands such as Gleason, Gildemeister, Reishauer and Studer.

The housings of the gearboxes are machined from a single piece with a minimum number of fixtures. This results in the most accurate alignment and a maximum torsional stiffness.

All gear teeth such as the right-angle bevel gears, pinions, planet and sun gears, as well as the internal toothing in the housing of the planetary gears, have an helical toothing.

The teeth of precision planetary gearboxes have an extra honing operation. Honing is a chipping precision machining by grinding of the teeth in the axial direction.

This production results in gearboxes suitable for precise and dynamic servo applications:

  • low tooth backlash (< 1 arcmin)
  • high concentricity
  • high torsional stiffness
  • low noise
  • high efficiency and thereby lifetime lubricated

Stober: from precision gear to control system

Actuator Level: Base is the wide range of precision gearboxes with servo motors and / or racks. For each application a constructive good solution.

Device Level: Stober controllers with positioning functionality equipped with EtherCAT or Profinet.

Control Level: Stober control system with control based motion control via EtherCAT.

At each level the components can be combined with another brand of servo motors, drives or operating system.

Stober servo gears

Best series servo gear units

  • Best specifications with many benefits through the bevel gear and production.
  • Widest range of gearboxes: from planetary, perpendicular to the very economical coaxial gearboxes.
  • The many constructive possibilities.
  • Easy assembly.
  • Optional with fan (ServoCool) and brake (ServoStop)

Easy mounting servomotors

  • All Stober gearboxes are fitted with an adapter and backlash-free clamp coupling for mounting many brands servomotors.
  • The mounting adapter has a fit. This allows the actuator can also be mounted horizontally; very practical for the replacement of the servomotor in the field.
  • The clamping coupling has a spread pin making it very easy to clamp with one bolt or spreading during disassembly.

Planetary gearboxes

  • Wide range of a cost-effective up to a high-precision gears with a backlash of less than 1 arc minute.
  • Versions with output shaft or flange block shaft.
  • Angled versions with helical bevel gears.


Bevel gearboxes
In addition to planetary gears with angular stages there are precise angle helical bevelgearboxes and helical worm gearboxes available. These gears gives an engineer many cost-effective solutions with the design and construction.

  • Solid shaft with keyway.
  • Double output solid shaft with keyway.
  • Hollow shaft with keyway and lubricate groove for easy disassembly, with optional cover.
  • Hollow shaft with backlash-free shrink disk, optional with cover.

Compact and dynamic servo motors

Synchronous servomotors with permanent magnets. Optimal design, like the stator with orthocyclic coil.

  • Compact / short in length - high power density
  • Low inertia - high dynamics
  • low cogging
  • High efficiency (> IE4)

Available with single or multi-turn EnDat 2.2 or Hyperface encoders with electronic nameplate for the Stober inverters.

With optional encoders, adjustment and connectors for third-party drives, among others, Siemens, Bosch Rexroth, SEW, B & R and Beckhoff.

Also available as as a servo motor with hollow shaft.

Stober EZ servo motors

Lean motors: the alternative between three-phase motors and servomotors

Is an asynchronous motor too big and not efficient enough for you? Or are you looking for an inexpensive and rugged alternative to the synchronous servo motor? Based on the "bridge the gap" principle, STOBER has brought a new motor class to market.

The consistently encoderless Lean motors are strong and rugged like asynchronous drives and precise and compact like synchronous servo motors. For example, the motors can be used for automation tasks in harsh production environments.

Most compact geared servo motors on the market

The Stober geared servo motors are built from the broad range of planetary gear and helical-bevel gear units combined with the compact servo motors.
The servo motor is assembled directly without adapter and coupling.

This construction without adapter and coupling has many advantages:

  • Compact
  • Low weight
  • Dynamic by lower inertia
  • high rigidity
  • Less friction by expiry of additional bearing and seal
  • lower cost

Stand alone and multi axis servo drive controllers

The Stober servo drives from the 6th generation with a servo cycle time of 62.5 ns and 25-bit encoder resolution are ideal for highly dynamic and accurate applications.

Control by  the CiA402 (Can in Automation) protocol:

  • Drive Based: EtherCAT or Profinet with a PLC
  • Control Based: EtherCAT with one Motion Controller (eg CoDeSys, TwinCAT)

In addition, the SD6 drive controller is also suitable for positioning control with a Stober protocol via EtherCAT, Profinet or analog / digital inputs and outputs.

Stober Motion_Controller_MC6

Automation with motion control

Powerful motion control controller suitable for programming in CoDeSys. Combining the MC6 controller with Stober SI6 and SD6 controller via EtherCAT offers the perfect mix in servo drive technology with a modular software and hardware system.

Suitable for complex motion such as interpolation, synchronization and robot controllers.

Also available with 15 "Touch Screen to control the machine.

Focus Markets of Stober Antriebstechnik

Because of the precise and dynamic servo systems Stober is a major global supplier for specific markets, such as:

  • tooling machines
  • robots, handling systems
  • packaging machines
  • printing machines

Especially for these focus markets some specific products are developped.

Stober servo toepassingen
stober rack and pinion

Rack and pinion drives for robots, handling and tooling machines

  • Servo gearboxes equiped with directly mounted pinions in combination with racks.
  • Optional with mounting adapters and lubrication systems.

Accurate basic versions:

  • Helical bevel gearboxes and planetary gearboxes with output shaft with a assembled pinion with module 2, 3 or 4.
  • Suitable for robots and handling systems
  • Combined with precise planetary gearboxes for machines such as plasma cutting machines.

High performance servo gear unit with support bearing:

  • Planetary gears with flange shaft and pinion with module 2 - 10
  • Additional support bearing in one design and one housing so that large forces are absorbed and many other advantages arise.
  • Designed for high-precision machine tools.

Two-speed gearbox for tooling machines

The Stöber two-stage switchable gearbox is specifically designed for spindle drives in tooling machines such as horizontal and vertical lathes.

  • At high speed th gearbox works in the direct-drive mode (i = 1)
  • For a high power at low speed the gearbox is switched to the low speed mode (i = 4 or i = 5,5)

The input side is provided with an adapter and backlash free coupling for mounting of a servo motor.
The output shaft is available as a flanged shaft, to direct assembly of a timing belt pulley , or as a solid smooth shaft, for coupling to a spindle.
