SGF, that's
Expertise for Drive Engineering

45 degrees outside temperature. The air is dusty, the noise deafening. Only a few people in shiny silver full-body protective suits remain in the hall, which is the size of a soccer field. Flames blaze from mighty boilers. Glowing heat rises from the enormous, 30-meter-long furnaces. Steel is cooked there at temperatures of up to 1,300 degrees Celsius.

In the literally sweat-inducing production of steel, countless individual steps and components have to mesh seamlessly and reliably. A shutdown would incur considerable costs – because simply switching on and off is simply not possible with the valuable melting furnaces. 

The drive is of particular importance in the steel mill. The steel to be moved is red-hot and weighs tons. In addition, there are heavy shocks and vibrations during the often jerky acceleration and deceleration of the hot material to be transported. The load on the drive is correspondingly high. It has to be very robust and resistant to reliably withstand all these extreme conditions.

This is exactly why many companies rely on SGF’s proven products. Our solutions for power transmission ensure a bull-strong drive. And our products for vibration damping ensure smooth running and a reduction in wear.

Everything from one hand

SGF is your development partner for drive engineering. Together with our customers, we develop products that meet individual requirements. Thanks to over 75 years of experience and our state-of-the-art equipment, we are able to develop solutions for the most demanding tasks. Ready-to-assemble systems made of elastic components with flanges or adapters can be developed, tested and produced due to our great competence.

In-house materials laboratory

When developing products, we use state-of-the-art materials laboratory to ensure best possible solution for your application. In doing so, we develop and process various elastomer compounds (NBR, SBR, EPDM, silicone / VMQ) according to requirements.

Virtual product development

Virtual product development includes multi-body simulation (MBS), finite element method (FEM)  and FKM evaluation (strength verification). Rapid prototyping is used to verify calculation and measurement.

In-house Testing

Validation of design and products done in-house according with customer specifications.
