Flexible Drive Technology

With our «flexible drive technology» program, we can provide standardized drive and power transmission units for all kinds of construction.

During our 90 years of experience, we have achieved a wide selection of units and assemblies in many sizes and versions. The following are precision made to high quality standards, inexpensive and readily available.

 We manufacture and supply single components or complete assemblies in standard dimensions. We also can manufacture to your specifications and supply a design for your exact requirements.


 “Innovation, flexibility in production, and the pursuit of the highest possible quality standards are the central pillars on which the success of Otto Suhner AG is based. ”  That’s how we were described by Rockwell Automation AG, in their Technical Report on the automated shaft test bench developed by two students at the SUHNER company.

  These strengths are now present on three continents. In the USA, Asia (China and India) and of course, in Europe, where new shafts are constantly being designed and manufactured to meet the stringent requirements of our customers. From 1914 to the present day.



 Seldom has the meaning of this phrase  been as appropriate as it is for our team of Transmission experts.  Sharing information is practiced and encouraged at all of our manufacturing sites.  Every year, at the beginning of January, the Managing Director and Sales Engineers meet in Workshops to exchange ideas on customer requirements and market developments.

 A culture of collaboration and progress can’t be  developed overnight. The Know-How accumulated over the past decades can be found within every individual employee, and in every product that leaves our company.        



 Innovation can be multiplied.  Our team is well aware of this rule, and applies it to all of our drive technology products.  And not just since yesterday. Our team has been manufacturing spiral bevel gears since the 1950’s.  To the same standards as our flexible shafts. We know how to transfer power.  In our products as well as our people.
