Stober gearboxes win Frost & Sullivan award
Based on its recent analysis of the gearboxes market for automation and machine tools, Frost & Sullivan recognised Stober with the Global 2014 Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Leadership. "Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated keen focus on enhancing the customer value, beyond mere good service, leading to improved customer retention," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Krishna Raman.
Stober's ServoFit PE servo gearboxes offer outstanding efficiency to users by achieving energy efficiency of more than 97 percent for 1-stage units and more than 95 percent for 2-stage units. A key product differentiating feature is the helical teething used in Stober's ServoFit planetary gear units. The ServoFit gearboxes also involve minimal contact sealing at the input; these features help users achieve low running noise of less than 60dB(A), which, in turn, reduces energy consumption further.
The modular design of the motor adapters in the ServoFit series of gear units makes them easy to mount on any type and brand of servo motor, drastically reducing the installation time.
Another innovative product category are Stober's two-speed gearboxes, which are primarily used in machine tool applications. The main spindle drive of the PS gearbox can be operated in two different modes. Users can operate these gearboxes in direct mode when using the machine tool for applications, such as finishing cuts that require high speed, or in reduction mode when using the machine tool for applications, such as heavy cutting of different materials, that require high torque.
"Stober's PS series is completely unique in the de-coupling of the planetary carrier during the high-speed, low-torque operations, which enables high energy efficiency, reduced splash loss and decreased heat generation," says Krishna Raman.
Partick Stöber, CEO of Stober, adds: "This is a brilliant recognition of the Stober engineering competence and an outstanding recognition of the company, further demonstrating our technical market leadership."
Frost & Sullivan's Best Practices Awards recognise companies in a variety of regional and global markets for outstanding achievement in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and product development.
