Gear units

High-quality BEGE gear units drive machines with power and efficiency. Standard versions and custom options. View our wide range of products.

Gear units

BEGE is known as a leading manufacturer and supplier of gear units. In addition to our standard products, we offer tailor-made gear units adapted to specific customer needs.

Gear units are a critical part of various machines and installations. They transform power from the input shaft to the output shaft, reducing the rotational speed while increasing the torque. Our high-performance gear units deliver consistent performance in a variety of industries because they are sturdy, compact and shock-resistant. At BEGE, we offer a wide range of gear units with eight different types.

Gear units for maximum machine power

What is a gear unit?

A gear unit, also known as a gearbox, is a mechanism that reduces rotational speed and increases forces.

The gear units offered by BEGE, including the coaxial gearbox we produce ourselves, are suitable for a wide range of applications, extending from light loads to demanding conditions.

How do we do this?

The core of a gear unit consists of a number of gears, such as bevel gears, helical bevel gears, worm gears, parallel or shaft-mount gears. These gears are the essential part of the gear unit, in which they transmit forces. By combining and configuring the gears, the power is converted from the input shaft to the output shaft, reducing the speed and increasing the torque.

The advantages of a gear unit

  • Adjustable power and speed
  • Higher torque for heavy loads
  • Space saving thanks to compact design
  • Accurate control over precision tasks
  • Durable for reliable and long-lasting use
  • Flexible to meet diverse needs
  • Versatile, suitable for various applications
  • Cost-saving and extended machine life
