The gear unit for greater reliability and increased availability

  • Output: from 200 kW through 100 MW
  • Speeds: from 1,500 to 20,000 rpm
  • Shaft position: parallel
  • Alignment: horizontal or vertical


These gear units are normally single-stage with parallel axes that can be offset horizontally or vertically. The teeth are either single-helical with or without thrust cone or else double-helical.
These gear units have a maximum output of approx. 100 MW, which is equivalent to five million 20 watt light bulbs.
They are used mainly for power generation, off- and onshore oil drilling platforms, pipelines, refineries and chemical plant.

Turbo Gear Units

Turbo gearboxes from Illkirch-Graffenstaden

We have been helping to make history and advance the science of mechanical drive technology in our field since 1837. Our perfect mastery of the production of turbo gearboxes is based on the knowhow of the men and women who rise to meet this challenge every day. We design, plan and manufacture gear units that are installed all over the world.
