Application examples

Wind power

Our hydraulic or mechanical shrink discs are used worldwide for the connection of the hollow shaft of the transmission with the rotor shaft.

Materials handling

In the powertrain of conveyor belts, our flange couplings are also used. Our shrink discs and locking assemblies are used in the field of conveyor technology, especially in heavy-duty cranes, conveyor drums, elevators and storage technology.

Drive technology

Our mechanical shrink discs are used for driving cable winches. In addition, hydraulic shrink discs, flange couplings and locking assemblies are used for shaft connections, motor connections and
brake discs.

Wood processing

Our shrink discs are installed in wood processing machines. A typical applictaion is the wood transport within the maschine. Depending on customer requirements, shaft couplins, locking assemblies and flange couplings are also used in this branch.

Paper industrie

Our locking assemblies are woldwide installed in different packaging machines. For example, they are used to mounting pullys and also for the transport of goods in the machines. Furthermore, shrink discs and shaft couplings are also used in this industrie.

Packaging machines

Preferably, our hydraulic shrink discs are used in this insutrie, this allows faster replacement of rolls. Furthermore, mechanical shrink discs and locking assemblies are installed in rollers and winding machines.


Different versions of our flange coupling are used in bucket wheel excavators. Furthermore, our locking assemblies and shrink discs are used in conveyor drums, stirring shaft connections and crushers.

Marine technology

Our hydraulic or mechanical shaft coupling drive rudder an shaft systems. Furthermore, our hydraulic and mechanical shrink discs are used to connect intermediate shafts and thrust bearing connections.


Our connections flanges are mainly installed in hydropower plants.
Our locking assemblies find their application in hydropower technology, e.g. in Francis turbines. Especially, the stainlees steel versions have a great importance in these applictaions.

Oil and gas industrie

Especially our stainlees steel products are designed for extreme conditions. Shaft couplings are used to connect gearboxes and motors. For sealing systems on pumps, our shrinks are also used.

Food industrie

Stainless steel products are standard in the food industrie. For this reason, our stainlees steel shrink discs or locking assemblies are essential for the high hygienic standatds of this industrie. Typical applications are stirring systems, ice machines and filling machines

Gearbox test benches

Our hydraulic shrink discs, especially for gearbox test benches, are designed and manufactured to customer specifications. Through our years of know-how, we are world market leaders in this industrie and equip test benches worldwide with our products.
