Gearboxes &
Geared Motors for
the Food & Beverage Industry

The food industry is one of the most important branches of industry in Germany. The food and beverage industry is subject to strict hygiene regulations, high rationalisation pressure and increasing demands. As a result, processes must function perfectly so that quality can be guaranteed and costs reduced.

Drive technology in particular is the focus of attention in the food and beverage industry. Plants and machines have to withstand special and high loads as well as meet the high safety and hygiene requirements. The bakery and confectionery industry, the dairy industry and beverage production are just a few examples where drive solutions are needed to transport materials or goods during the production process using conveyor belt technology (please also have a look at "material handling").

Powerful gears are essential to drive these systems and machines. With many years of experience in the development, production and assembly of gear units and geared motors, Premium Stephan Hameln meets a wide range of customer requirements combined with a high standard of quality. More information about different applications in the food and beverage industry can be found in the applications listed below.

'Bread slicers at the highest level. Whether for bakery shops or canteen kitchens, Premium Stephan supplies the drives for these machines. Spur gear planetary gears allow the circular knife to rotate and guide it simultaneously during cutting. Developed together with the market leader in bread slicing technology Premium-Stephan has been manufacturing these drives for years and produces them in-house. Precision and reliability are the basic requirements for this partnership.


Where food is moved during processing and also packed, reliable drives are of the utmost importance. The conveyor systems, which are mainly designed as conveyor belts, require drives with application-specific characteristics. They are usually closed gearboxes filled with food grade lubricant, have parallel or right-angled shafts and can be used as hollow or full-shaft gearbox.


Wherever something is filled in large quantities, semi-automatic or fully automatic filling systems are used. There are applications in many industrial sectors such as the chemical industry, the food industry and the beverage industry. A wide variety of containers such as glass bottles, cans or light weighting bottles place high demands on these systems and the geared motors that drive them. Reliable, low-maintenance and durable drives are required.
