Plastic gear parts for automotive production

Supreme smoothness, dynamics and efficiency

Our range of products and services for the automotive industry

  • All types of gearwheels, such as spur gears, planetary stages, helical gears and worm gears
  • All types of gear systems, such as straight and helical gear systems as well as gear systems with internal and external teeth
  • Selection of customized materials from technical thermoplastics, fillers and reinforcing materials and highly temperature-resistant plastics such as PEEK
  • 0.2 to 4 modules

Gear parts made from plastic fulfil the same task as their counterparts made from metal – but at only a fraction of the weight. This makes plastic gearwheels a key technology for lightweight vehicle construction and delivers more efficiency and dynamics on the road.

But that is only one aspect: Gear parts made from plastic also fulfil strict requirements with respect to tolerances, have impressively low noise emissions and offer a high level of resistance to moisture and temperature variations. As a result, they guarantee reliable performance over the entire lifetime of the vehicle.

Our development expertise in plastic gear parts

We have been producing gear parts from plastic for over 60 years and are one of the pioneers in the precision injection molding of plastics. We are familiar with the advantages and idiosyncrasies associated with every type of gear and every material, and can use this wealth of experience to develop the right solution for your application.

  • We continuously invest in basic research: Using our own empirical dataset for the design of gear systems and our own gear test stand, we can test a vast range of different combinations of gear geometries and materials, thus creating the basis for an efficient and reliable development process.
  • We optimize gear geometries to your specifications. Alongside target specifications such as load-bearing capacity, efficiency, installation space and noise performance, we also take other factors such as warpage and shrinkage characteristics into account.
  • We select the most suitable material from a large range of technical thermoplastics and high-temperature plastics. In combination with suitable fillers and reinforcing materials, we are able to develop extremely lightweight and high-performance components and systems.
  • We not only develop the gear parts but also the associated injection molding tools. This means that we focus on the design of injection molded parts from the outset and are able to identify and correct critical issues related to injection molding during the development of the molding tools.

Our production expertise in plastic gear parts

Our holistic approach means we can provide you with engineering, tool construction, injection molding, further processing, assembly and quality management services from one source. This allows us to seamlessly coordinate the different production steps and guarantee the highest levels of quality throughout the entire production process.

  • We have our own professional tool construction service in-house that guarantees the highest precision in the production of the desired geometries.
  • Our modern production plants makes it possible for us to produce several million plastic gear parts cost efficiently in a short period of time.
  • Careful handling of the gearwheels improves the quality of the parts and minimizes impact marks.
  • Our extensive quality assurance process according to IATF 16949 ensures that our gear parts perform reliably and also satisfy their economic requirements in the long term.
