About us

R+W Antriebselemente GmbH was first established in 1990 in Klingenberg, Germany. The head office is still there, but we are now more than 220 people, with subsidiaries in USA, China, Italy, Singapore, France and Slovakia, and are partnered with over 60 distributors in more than 50 countries. Many developments have lead to this success, but most importantly it was brought about our endless search for the best possible coupling solutions. R+W stands for expertise in the development of solutions for precise torque transmission. As a leading manufacturer of precision couplings and line shafts, we strive to maintain a permanent status of technology leadership in our field. Our central claim: R+W couplings ensure precision for process reliability and efficiency, and to that end we seek perfection. Optimized for technology and business, our product portfolio includes: Bellows couplings, Elastomer couplings, Ball-detent safety couplings, Line shafts, High torque industrial couplings and development of customized solutions with collaboration from start to finish.

Products and services

The R+W product portfolio is optimized for technology and business, including precision couplings and industrial drive couplings for precise torque transmission (0.05 to 250,000 Nm). R+W offers torsionally rigid, flexible metal bellows couplings for high dynamics, safety couplings for precise torque overload protection, line shafts for easy radial installation, robust disc couplings, vibration damping, backlash free elastomer couplings, as well as flexible gear couplings. R+W is able to deliver the perfect coupling for every individual application. R+W precision couplings are ideal for machine tools, packaging machines, industrial robots, medical equipment and all other machinery requiring a high level of accuracy and repeatability. R+W industrial drive couplings increase reliability in steel and sheet metal processing equipment, sawmill equipment, extruders, crushing and grinding equipment, and everywhere heavy duty torque loads need to be transmitted safely and reliably. Check this out on our booth at the IATP or online.
