Made for motion – KTR has been developing power transmission components for mechanical and plant engineering under this slogan for more than fifty years. As a leading manufacturer of high-grade power transmission technology, brake systems and cooling systems, and hydraulic components, KTR is a dependable partner for any company that wishes to keep moving forward. Since its foundation the KTR family has grown continuously in almost every field. The significant innovative capacity and the strong pioneering spirit have since been the stimulation of KTR. Time for a short journey back in time? It all began back in the 1950s. BoWex®, the first curved tooth coupling to combine steel and plastic, was developed at KTR’s headquarters in Rheine. This was shortly followed by ROTEX®, the first brand coupling to become a DIN standard. These successes fuel the imagination. And you can build on them – which is exactly what KTR does.
