Italian Gearbox Manufacturers


The automotive industry in Italy has always been a relatively large employer in the country and a significant contributor to Italy’s national GDP. It is estimated that there are between 2,000 and 3,000 firms primarily manufacturing smaller cars for use within cities, though it is perhaps the well known and beloved sports car manufacturers such as Ferrari and Lamborghini that the Italian automobile industry is most famous for.


Among these many Italian car manufacturing businesses are a lot of parts manufacturers who produce the likes of specialist gearboxes and geared motor units for use in a wide variety of automotive and industrial applications.


These gearbox manufacturers include DZ Trasmissioni, Spaggiari, Motori Bonora and the magnificently named Rotex Ellettromeccanica. These companies manufacture high quality gearboxes for many different uses, and their parts are available worldwide via gearbox suppliers such as YB Components.


DZ Trasmissioni Geared Motors


With their headquarters in Bologna in northern Italy, the excellent gearboxes manufactured by DZ Trasmissioni should be able to handle any power transmission with a rotary motion between two shafts arranged at 90 degrees. Tthe standard range of DZ Trasmissioni Geared Motors just by itself includes nine different sizes with shaft girths ranging from 8 to 35mm, a range of up to 15kW and rotational speeds reaching 3000rpm.


Spaggiari manufacture a variety of gearboxes, geared-motors and variators. The range of gearboxes includes coaxial gearboxes, worm gearboxes, bevel helical and parallel shaft gearboxes. As well as other geared motor units and gear motors, the Sgpaggiari variator range features variable speed variators and several kinds of motor variator such as the large belt closed motor-variators. Just like DZ Trasmissioni, Spaggiari operate primarily out of the Emilia-Romagna region in Italy, of which Bologna is the capital.


Motori Bonora


Motori Bonora have been designing and manufacturing asynchronous electric motors since 1945, both in three-phase and single-phase form. They are a relatively small to medium-sized family-run business with headquarters also in the Emilia-Romagna region in northern Italy, though they are a few miles north east of Bologna in the province of Ferrera. Interestingly, the company humbly describes their products as being of a medium to high quality, though they also insist that their motors and gearboxes are only made using the highest quality components, such as NSK or SKF bearings.


Rotex Ellettromeccanica


With headquarters in the region of Vicenza in northern Italy (due-west from Venice), Rotex Ellettromeccanica are the manufacturers of the Rotex DC Tachogenerators. These gearboxes use a special magnetic structure and a large quantity of slots and segments, all of which help produce an excellent output signal which is suitable for any situations where a good linearity between voltage and rotational speed is essential to the operation. There are two main types of Rotex DC Tachogenerators, one featuring a standard shaft and another featuring a hollow shaft.


If you require any of the gearboxes mentioned above such as the DZ Trasmissioni geared motors, then contact YB Components who are the UK’s leading suppliers of Italian-made gearboxes and who can ship these high-quality components all over the world.
