Gelenkwellenwerk Stadtilm GmbH - GEWES

Since 1947 Gelenkwellenwerk Stadtilm GmbH - GEWES has been producing roller bearing-mounted universal joint shafts and Cardan shaft assemblies like u-joint crosses to a high quality standard and with a large vertical range of products specifically aimed at meeting the requirements of our customers.

HIGH PERFORMANCE - TORQUES UP TO 600 000 Nm 

GEWES low-maintenance u-joints reliably transmit torques of up to 600 000 Nm in numerous industrial applications.
Our Cardan shafts transmit mechanical drive power, for instance, in steel and paper factories. They are installed in crane systems, materials handling and pump stations as well as in railway and marine applications and of course in the automotive and agricultural machinery industry.
Wherever torques with an angular offset pose a challenge, GEWES u-joint shafts are an optimal solution for your power train.

KNOW-HOW - TRADITION AND INNOVATION

We make use of the extensive experience of a traditional company to develop, produce and test our drive shafts, using one hundred percent German engineering skills and manufacturing facilities that are among the most modern worldwide.
A long service life and great strength characterise the high quality of our products. This has permitted GEWES to achieve market leadership in the marine sector when it comes to power trains up to 5,000 kW.

EXCELLENT MANUFACTURING SKILLS - ALL FROM ONE SOURCE, MADE IN GERMANY

Our u-joint shaft components are manufactured in-house at our German production site.
As a manufacturer of double Cardan shafts with many years of experience and a specialist in miscellaneous drive shafts and precision turned parts, we are a major partner when it comes to commercial and passenger vehicles, agricultural vehicles and self-propelled harvesting machines.
