From Out of the North Comes a 20-year-old Alpha Gearbox

Wittenstein Gearbox Still Turning After 20 Years

The alpha gearbox had been turning equipment for 20 years, but it was time for an upgrade.

Wittenstein’s systems integrators received a call from a customer asking about updating the gearboxes on their machines. The customer, from Canada, purchased the new alpha SP+ and sent in the old gearboxes to its distributor.Upon further inspection, the gearbox was one of the original Wittenstein products…and in remarkable condition, according to Wittenstein. The gearbox (pictured left) had been turning machines for nearly 20 years with precision in motion.

Wittenstein is looking for other old gearboxes that still are turning. What’s your story? Send it to
