STOBER will be launching a third shift for production in August. For several years, STOBER has been running two shifts for production and three shifts for manufacturing. The addition of 3rd shift will allow us to increase our production capacity, utilize workstations more effectively, and improve order flow, all while improving the satisfaction of our customers.
The force that powers food processing equipment — everything from pumps and conveyors to slicers and mixers — is housed within industrial gearboxes. Though these parts are small enough to be picked up by hand, they’re still not pieces you want to replace regularly, especially when a breakdown means stalling production and losing profits.
STOBER FITS allowed users to build gearboxes online. Since then, STOBER has been working on the next generation of its online configurator. It is now available! With the new STOBER Configurator, engineers and designers will save time in product selection and designing. Before the configurator, they searched through catalogs to find the right solution, request information in multiple places, and use type code values. Now, everything is a simple click away.
When an assembly line needs to stop immediately because of a power failure or hazardous situation, the safety of employees and equipment is only as strong as the braking system. With a goal of increasing safety throughout the manufacturing industry, STOBER Drives launched ServoStop, a revolutionary holding brake that provides redundant braking power.
It’s here! The new STOBER website has officially been launched. The goal of our new website is to create a seamless and excellent user experience. No matter where in the world you are visiting www.stober.com from, you will enjoy simple navigation, clean design, and consistent branding.

Harsh environments easily cause premature failure for gearboxes. From caustic chemicals to water ingress to washing pressure, gearboxes face numerous challenges that can lead to early problems. One of the main issues is seal degradation.

An Ohio poultry processor was experiencing oil leakage from a competitor’s worm gearbox. The leaking oil not only caused the unit to fail prematurely but cost the company more money. The customer had to lubricate reducers, purchase drip pans to place under every unit, stock lubrication for replenishing the reducers, and dispose of the used oil.
