DYNAMIC development and production

R+W products are used in a wide variety of industries requiring absolute precision and reliable durability. To accommodate the broad range of customer requirements for individualized solutions, the technicians and engineers at R+W are constantly working on the development of new products and on improving existing ones. At the heart of the development work at R+W are innovative coupling systems for the many areas of drive technology.


As market leader in bellows couplings and technology leader in precision couplings, R+W offers the most versatile range of products available on the market. The product portfolio includes torque limiters, bellows couplings, elastomer couplings, linear and miniature bellows couplings as well as line shafts. R+W only uses the highest-quality materials, which are then processed carefully and with extreme accuracy. In this way, the products can stand up to the toughest every-day demands: They are completely backlash, wear, and maintenance-free and are very long-life. R+W is certified in line with the DIN EN ISO 9001 quality standards.


In addition to a large portfolio of standard products, R+W develops specialized solutions tailored to customer needs. The company’s extensive development work is supported through close cooperation with leading universities and technical colleges. This results in quality products that boost the efficiency and operational safety of equipment, which turn contributes significantly to the success of R+W clients.

VERSATILE Business Activities

To accommodate constantly expanding product requirements R+W introduced the manufacturing and production system called “KAIZEN” (Japanese for “change for the better”) in 2006. Through this, all production procedures were made more efficient. This not only improved the quality of the finished products, but also boosted the company’s speed and efficiency in delivering individual orders. This specialized production system enables 24-hour delivery service at R+W – in many cases, the company can produce and deliver on the same day an order is placed. This guarantees the fastest-possible response to client needs and requests for estimates.

EXPANDING Business Operation

Our understanding of quality includes maintaining a close connection to the market and our clients. The R+W network of expertise stands for a global transfer of know-how and outstanding on-site consulting. This is the only way we can keep up with the real day-to-day needs of our customers and deliver with a great degree of flexibility and speed.
