69% of machine designers say shorter product development schedules are their top challenge, according to the Aberdeen Group. Optimize Floor Space. Reduce Components. Simplify Design. STOBER can help you do all of that and more. Talk to our engineers who have done tens of thousands of packaging machines.
Traditional planetary gearboxes require additional components, such as belts, pulleys, mounting brackets, guards, and more. These extra pieces mean longer installation times, more cost, and increased operating danger.

Need a gearbox? Want to size it online without using a catalog? You can with STOBER FITS! This easy tool combines visuals and sizing to provide your optimal STOBER solution. You don’t need to be a STOBER expert to use it.
STOBER has released STOBER FITS, an online configuration tool that allows customers to quickly and easily specify and select STOBER gear reducers. The focus of the tool is to improve overall customer experience, expediting selection, sizing and specification processes for the customer through a unified and convenient online process.
Determining what STOBER product is needed and ordering it typically requires several steps, including specifying a mounting position, paint coating, and more information that is not included in a part number. The intent to improve this process and the growing trend in digital tools is what drove STOBER to create their online configuration tool, STOBER FITS.
Users can simply put in their NEMA or servo motor and see possible STOBER matches. Filters can be applied to narrow results. Then, you can easily choose your output style, mounting position, and more. If a user doesn’t have a motor, it is no problem. They can use the browse option to see all products and use the filters to find one that fits the application.
Once configured, the user can share the configuration with others, save it, or request a quote or drawing.
Any mechanical device used over food production must be of the highest quality. Products that leak oil are not an option!
STOBER’s KS is ideal for dynamic mixing processes. The agitators can be mounted to the rotating flange supported by stout tapered bearings. The hollow bore also allows for air lines to pass through, which are used in the agitation process. The demanding nature of the dynamic mixing is no problem for the KS.
Customers need a reliable and durable gearbox that can withstand the harsh conditions of food or beverage environments. STOBER currently has three sizes with its stainless steel right angle gearbox, the KSS. The company is introducing its fourth size, capable of generating output torques up to 4,872 in. lbs. The KSS4 is compatible with NEMA 56C, 143/145TC, and 182/184TC frame motors.
The expansion is perfect for poultry, pork, and beef processing. The stainless steel housing won’t pit if blood gets on the surface. In addition to its durable housing, the KSS is IP69K Certified and USDA Accepted. All of our gearboxes come with a 3 year standard warranty. However, our average mean time to failure is 8 years. Trust a STOBER KSS to last with no downtime and no maintenance.
How do you drive your conveyor? Do you use a belt and pulley? This makes for a lot of extra work. You have to find the pulley, belt, guard, bracket, and screw. Then you have to attached the mounting bracket to the frame, attach the gearbox to the bracket, put the pulley on the gearbox, attach the belt, adjust the tension, and finally put on the guard.
Wouldn’t it be easier to avoid this assembly work? STOBER can help you do this! Our “F” series gearbox can be attached directly to the load. You can save space and money by avoiding the auxiliary components. Contact STOBER’s technical support team to learn how to save money and space on your conveyor!
Do you need a solution for your Automated Guided Vehicle’s steering axis or wheel drive? STOBER has several options to fit your needs.
From gear motors to gear boxes, STOBER has an ideal solution for precision wheel drive and steering axis on AGVs. The compact gear motor can fit into small spaces on the AGV. The stout bearing can support the wheel load while the planetary gearing provides extreme positioning.
Also available is our integrated servo gear motor, the PH_EZ. Its compact design will keep the overall length shorter. There is an option for a holding brake as well. It is compatible with most popular servo drives.
Our K gearboxes can also work for your AGV needs.
