STOBER’s SMS Gearboxes for mechanical flexibility

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.

STOBER Employees Kiss a Pig to Raise Money for Relay for Life

KissPig

STOBER promotes not only our employees but also our community.  We wanted to raise money for the Relay for Life, so our activities committee came up with the fun idea of having our management team smack lips with a pig!

Each manager had a jar placed in our break rooms with their picture on the jar.  Employees could put money in the jar of the person they wanted to see kiss a pig!  The top three earners would kiss a pig, which was sponsored by Second Chance Thrift Store in Maysville.

The lucky winners were Adam Prater with $331.30, Chris Breeze with $323.68, and Jeff Frodge with $280.09.  The gentlemen donned their finest lipstick to smooch the pig on Friday, April 21.

In total, STOBER raised $1,525.45 for the Relay for Life.  Thanks to all who participated and a special thanks to our three winners for being good sports!
