About us

Since 1977, we have been developing and manufacturing standard and special gear units along with drive components for mechanical engineering companies and plant operators in the capital goods industry.

KWE Klein & Wilhelm Engineering GmbH in Bottrop Kirchhellen

Over the course of time we have acquired an enormous range of experience from our direct proximity to heavy industry and not least also in terms of the increased reliability of our quality products.

We design...

Über uns

With the aid of the latest software we plan, design and develop complete gear units and drive components for the most varied industrial drive applications. Based on previously tried and tested solutions, we achieve the highest degree of quality and reliability.

We produce...

Über uns

Whether based on drawings, samples or taking measurements onsite: We manufacture gear units up to 40t unit weights and gear wheels of up to 2000mm diameter in the highest quality and precision. CNC manufacturing technology along with the latest heat treatment methods are naturally the standard at KWE.

We repair...

Über uns

Whether in our premises or right onsite at your place: KWE repairs gear units of all makes, types and model years. Worn out attachment parts are replaced with new ones and - if necessary - defective gear wheels are overhauled through re-turning and re-milling. After the repair you have the gear unit available as good as new and in the state of the art. More information

We assemble...

Über uns

Our fitters are experts in their field. From the erection and alignment of the components through commissioning the plant: Everything is undertaken with the greatest care and reliability. At the same time all operating parameters are tested and logged as a matter of course.

We check...

Über uns

Prevention is better than standstill! Exhaustive inspections help prevent expensive downtimes and guarantee you cost savings through specific repairs and the high availability of your drive systems. We provide the entire bandwidth of condition monitoring from fault diagnosis in individual cases up to constant condition monitoring.

We optimise...

Über uns

Dedicated modification and re-engineering measures can significantly increase the performance capacity of your drive unit which also decisively improves cost effectiveness. Our team of engineers is always available to you during the planning and calculation of all optimisation measures.
