Servo motors don’t necessarily need a planetary gearbox. In addition to the great planetary offering it has, STOBER offers the ServoFit™ Modular System. These gear reducers use helical gearing and can handle your servo motor needs.
The SMS series literally has billions of options – various mounting configurations, case sizes, ratios, output options, and more equate to anything you need for your machine. Choosing what you need is easy – use our online product configurator or contact our application support team to find your product.
STOBER’s service and support does not stop after you purchase the gearbox. It is only the beginning. After you have received your unit, our application support team will visit your plant to do on-site training. They will focus on proper installation and best practices of our products.
If you have any questions or need additional assistance, our field service group is available to assist with evaluations, corrective fixes, and more. Service engineers can review your application to prevent failures with analysis and evaluation for plant optimization. There are four analysis and evaluation levels to ensure we provide the most thorough assessment possible.

Updating your shop floor with new equipment and personnel is standard trade magazine fodder today—and for obvious reasons. Any feasible upgrades can make a significant impact on a company’s bottom line. So you’ll find an article or two (or three or four) in our industry that will examine the importance of investing and upgrading in your personnel and your machines.
STOBER, a company specializing in motion control and power transmission, recently published the following article to help plant managers determine if a manufacturing infrastructure update is necessary. Following the article, there’s a Q&A with Scott Alles, manufacturing manager and Landon Garrison, manufacturing engineer at STOBER.
STOBER serves a variety of industries, including printing. We had a customer who had problems with their flexographic printing machine.
Customer was using a competitor’s gearbox. The application required very high input speeds. The competitor’s units were overheating and destroying the seals, causing oil to leak.
STOBER went to the customer and evaluated the machine. We recommended our P series unit with the servocool option to improve airflow and reduce seal wear. This eliminated the issue and allowed the customer to save money by extending the gearbox’s life, minimizing maintenance, and reducing inventory.

Our Maysville employees are committed to being philanthropic community leaders. They take part in charitable actions as part of their everyday routine and are proud of being able to invest in the people beside whom they live and work. Every year, STOBER employees raise money to give back to the community. In 2017, we held a “Kiss the Pig” contest and gathered internal donations to support Cancer Fighters United and Mason County Relay for Life. As a result, STOBER donated over $5,500 to both groups. The employees truly are what makes STOBER the gold standard.
How do you make the world’s toughest gearbox, requiring no maintenance? It starts with the gearing. Our high precision gears are machined after hardening to provide the best quality. This minimizes metal shavings in the oil. We use magnetic drain plugs to remove any particles from the oil.
No breathers or vents prevents any contaminants from entering the gearbox and keeps oil in. Our units are sealed for life, eliminating leaking.
STOBER works with the best suppliers to provide the ultimate quality. We use SKF bearings to eliminate premature failure, Freudenberg seals that can withstand harsh environments, and Mobil lubricants that do not create pressure that blows out seals.
Learn how you can free up your maintenance team to do other preventative maintenance instead of working on leaking gearboxes. Call us at (888) 786-2371 or visit www.stober.com

Employees of STOBER Drives Inc. in Maysville raised over $800 for charity by simply not shaving.
“Every year for the last few years my son has told me that I have to compete in No-Shave November,” said Scott Moulas, a member of the Activities Committee at STOBER. “I said ‘What do you win?’ and he said, ‘You don’t win anything, it’s just to signify that you respect people who have cancer.’”
Moulas said he figured that if he was going to do it, why not make it a competition?
“People can put their votes in and, even though it’s judged, the person with the most votes, STOBER will throw them a pizza party,” Moulas said.
The 12 contestants were clean-shaven on Nov. 1.
“STOBER’s also matching the money we received,” Moulas said. “Right now we’re up to $416. So $832 dollars is going to be donated to the cancer charity the winner chooses.”
Moulas said the contest has been fun as well as charitable.
