Custom Drive Solutions

Innovation at the component level within an integral drive system; from standard to customized and from small to large.

Specialized, Customer-specific Drive Solutions

With years of experience in drive technology, BEGE not only supplies the parts, but also offers innovative customized solutions tailored to sector- or customer-specific requirements. Whether it’s a small, compact machine or an extensive, complicated system; when it comes to industrial manufacturing we can provide the answers to today’s challenges and tomorrow’s desires.

From supplier to innovator at the component level

BEGE was founded in 1950 as a supplier of components for power transmission. Over time, we started producing components such as the G-serie helical gearmotor and the MIG NOVA+.

In line with our mission of creating, optimizing and maintaining reliable drive systems, our services have shifted from being a pure supplier and manufacturer to being an integrated drive partner.

By combining various components into a customer-specific integrated drive system, we have successfully assisted countless companies in professionalizing their drive processes in recent decades.

Over the years, BEGE has increasingly focused on the innovation of customization at the component level. This means we select the best version of a specific component to fit perfectly within the machine. We cleverly combine and innovate existing technologies and deliver integrated technical customization to improve the drive process.

Specialized Integral Drives

Our drive systems lead to optimal drive processes thanks to innovative customization.

Smart Food-safe Drive Solutions

As a result of increasingly strict legislation, organizations in the food industry must meet strict requirements, whether or not a drive comes into contact with food. BEGE collaborates with machine builders and other companies active in this sector to offer customized, smart, food-safe drive solutions.

Our stainless steel product line takes the customer’s specific situation into account. We create stainless steel drives for applications requiring the highest hygiene standards, without compromising on quality, reliability or performance. These drives are often placed in installations where extremely high humidity levels and frequent cleaning cycles regularly occur, such as breweries, meat and poultry processors and dairies.

In addition, we also supply stainless steel drives for situations where there are no harsh conditions or high-pressure cleaning, but where regulations imposes requirements on food safety. These more basic drives are used, for example, in conveyors for bread baking machines.

We also supply aseptic motors with special coatings for use in the food industry. These motors are often used in combination with an aluminium gearbox and feature a food-safe coating. The motors have the same design as the stainless steel motors, but are lower cost and lighter thanks to the choice of materials, which makes them easier to use.
Protection rating range IP55, IP56, IP65, IP66 and IP69K.

High-precision Drive Components for Motion Control and Servo

We supply a wide range of KHK gears and racks for motion control and servo. The high quality and optimum precision of these components lead to very accurate positioning with little play.

We have a large stock, so we can guarantee short delivery times. We can produce these parts to size as required, tailored to customer-specific needs such as surface finish and heat treatments, tooth shapes and tolerances.

We also work closely with our suppliers on new products that lead to more efficient drives.

ATEK has recently launched a new series of planetary angle drives specially for the motion control and servo market. BEGE is the official representative in Benelux. This expansion allows us to provide our customers with planetary drives for dynamic applications.

These drives are compact and easy to use in small machines with limited installation space. Customers are regularly amazed how much more compact the final drive turns out to be than they initially thought possible.
