Did you know you did not have to use a planetary gearbox on every servo application? STOBER’s ServoFit Modular Series (SMS) gives you mechanical flexibility. A variety of housing and output options means you can pick what you need and mount it to your machine. Another advantage of the SMS is higher input speeds, especially on the right angle gearbox.
In addition to being quieter than a planetary gearbox, there are more ratios to choose from, providing you with more options. These units can also come in food and beverage duty and the right angle has a stainless steel version.

Do you want to save space in your application? This can be done with a STOBER geared motor. By utilizing an integral unit, you can save over 20% in length by eliminating motor adapter plates and coupling. Not only can you save space but you can also take advantage of less inertia and a higher torque density.
One of STOBER’s core values is to serve others. This means serving our customers, our employees, and our community. In addition to our recent fundraiser for the Relay for Life, STOBER has donated thousands of dollars in the first half of this year alone to numerous organizations and causes. Groups included: Maysville Women’s Crisis Center, KCTCS Farm and Family Night, Camp Discovery 2017, Bracken County Conservation Day, Lions Club Radio Auction, Lewisburg Lions Club Horse Show, Buffalo Trace Children’s Advocacy, Boy Scouts of America, and more.
An employee-centric company, STOBER prioritizes development and growth opportunities for every staff member. An important element for development is training. STOBER began searching for an on-demand training method and found Cornerstone. This on-demand training system has greatly improved training efficiency and consistency.

Peter Feil sees apprenticeships not just as a way to fill skilled jobs in rural communities—he sees them as a savior for small towns.
With Millennials more likely to relocate to urban areas than their generational predecessors, “anything we can do to provide opportunities and convince kids to stay is going to be critical for maintaining any kind of industry,” says Feil, who heads U.S. operations for German gearbox and motor maker Stober Drives. “The more kids we can retain, the more businesses will thrive. Every kid we lose is a lifetime worker that’s not going to be in our town.”
Stober USA, which has around 120 employees, is located in Maysville, Ky., a town of 9,000 about an hour’s drive from both Cincinnati and Lexington, Ky. The company has hosted 32 apprentices since it launched the program 10 years ago, including 16 current apprentices.
“We feel a responsibility as a leader in the community to do everything we can to promote these programs and to market them and to lead by example and get others to follow,” says Feil “We feel it’s an ethical and moral obligation, because we don’t want to see our community die.”
Feil, who along with leading Stober’s apprenticeship program also recently got a local chapter of KY FAME off the ground after many years of trying, shared what he’s learned about apprenticeship success.
Do you need a motor that works with Kinetix 5700 and 6500? STOBER has an extensive offering of Rockwell enabled servo motors. You can size them in your design with Rockwell’s online sizing and selection tool, Motion Analyzer!
STOBER’s hollow bore motor is an ideal solution for passing cables and pipes through the motor. It is available as a direct drive or with gearing ratios of 3, 9, or 27:1. The ball screw servo motor is designed to directly drive a spindle nut. It is compact and is designed for universal mounting to the spindles.
In addition to stand alone motors, STOBER offers geared motors. Our gearboxes mount directly to our servo motors, eliminating the need for a motor coupling, adapter, coupling housing, and other additional components. Visit our website to learn more!
