We set the standards

Company > About us > We set the standards

We make brakes.
But we also push forward.

Brakes and clutches are our expertise. A safe standstill is therefore an essential part of our business. As a company, however, we prefer to be on the move. With constant focus on new technical possibilities and what our customers want now and will need in the future. 

That’s why we produce the best quality – but also why we prioritize research and development. Two teams are continuously working to improve our high-quality brake and clutch technology for electric drives. One team takes care of quickly deliverable series products and easily customizable modular systems. The other team implements very specific customer requests.

Taking advantage of our four locations and a close-knit global dealer network, we provide you with globally reliable brake and clutch solutions. You also get well-founded application support and, most importantly, quick delivery times.
