Safety and quality have top priorities.

  • Bevel-Planetary gear-reducers
  • Bevel-helical gear-reducers
  • Special gear-reducers

We also manufacture the following products:

  • Emergency drives for evacuation of passengers in case of break-down
  • Stand-By Drives to continue full operation in case of power failure
  • Hollow axles for a bull-wheel-arrangement independent of the reducer
  • Disengageable coupling for the bull-wheel

All the components of each gear-reducer are composed of the assembly according to the customer’s specifications. Flexibility has for Kissling a high priority if there are special technical requirements. This is why Kissling enjoys the same good reputation as it did from the very beginning.
