About Us


Questions of transmission technology have been dealt with at the WZL for over 50 years. The WZL Gear Department currently has 35 employees, 22 of whom are research assistants supported in their work by more than 50 student assistants. Our current work focuses in roughly equal parts on the fields of design, production and testing as well as on interdisciplinary issues.

In addition to basic research, we focus on industry-related research topics that we carry out for national and international research associations or industrial associations. We present the results of our work to the members of the "WZL Gear Research Circle" at the annual WZL Gear Conference. Cooperation with industry and application-oriented industrial research play a central role for us. Together with our industrial partners we develop solutions for concrete tasks and lead them to industrial implementation.
