Torque multiplier
DREMOPLUS ALU
  • The slender, lighter structure of the appliances ensures convenient and safe working - even where conditions are particularly cramped
  • Repetition-accurate and precise results - supported by individual factory test certificates - ensure a maximum degree of job safety
  • In-house development and 3D simulation (using the latest design and analysis methods such as 3D CAD / CAM / FEM)
  • Especially when unloosening seized screw connections, minimised impacts on the tooth flanks appear in a low backlash planet gear. The greater the precision with which the components fit together, the more stable the overall structure and the longer the service life. This precision can only be assured by a high in-house manufacturing proportion and consistent quality checks. The production depth of the components at GEDORE is far more than 90%.
