Due to the increasing number of technologies employed in practice, there is ever greater pressure on future specialists to rapidly acquire extensive expertise in the field of mechanical drive technology. With this in mind, we have created our didactics program for gear unit technology.


The "helical gear unit R57FAD2" didactics kit is based on our R series of standard gear units and is designed specifically as a teaching aid for professional training. This also applies to the relevant accessory components and spare parts. The kit is clearly arranged in two robust plastic cases, which can also be stacked on top of one another.


This teaching aid is designed for education and further training, for example, in vocational schools, technical and specialist colleges, universities and company training establishments. This simple yet practical module allows future specialists to learn how a helical gear unit is structured and how it transmits forces:

  • It facilitates understanding of the machine elements
  • The theory behind the gear unit is presented in a practical manner, thus making it more easily understandable
  • The assembly or disassembly of the gear units can be easily repeated without the need for expensive pressing tools

Perfectly prepared for increasing technical demands

As a means of torque and speed transmission, gear units are an essential component of electric and mechatronic drive units. One important aspect in this regard is the change in direction of rotation. For this reason, specialists require extensive knowledge of the structure and configuration of the various components of a gear unit – ranging from project planning to implementation and maintenance.


Trends such as energy efficiency represent new challenges, but also offer opportunities for higher qualification. With our didactics modules for gear unit technology and our long-standing expertise, teachers and instructors will be well equipped to cover these topics of the future.

Helical gear unit cut-away model

Bring your theory to life. Our cut-away model shows how the internal components of a helical gear unit interact and how a gear unit works.


By means of a handwheel on the cut-away models, we aim to demonstrate the interplay between different gearing as well as the resulting flow of forces (linear power flow of helical gear unit) and gear ratios.


Every cut-away model features a nameplate showing the most important data, which can be used to perform calculations, such as of gear ratios and speeds.


As an option, the cut-away models can be securely stored in TANOS (T-Loc) case systems.

The gear unit modules have been designed solely for educational use.

Areas of application

The kit and helical gear unit cut-away model are suitable for use in education and further training at

  • Vocational schools
  • Technical schools
  • Specialist schools
  • Colleges
  • Universities
  • Company training establishments
  • Etc.
