Maybe you are a bit surprised that our products are employed in the impressive T-Rex. However, a fully mobile dinosaur model`s high axial forces need to be absorbed at high bending moments to ensure safe continuous operation. Our shaft-hub connections offer a first-class solution to both requirements.

We are happy that our products are a part of that, and, of course, hope to be able to tell you many more success stories from the entertainment industry. For, let us be honest, it is always exciting to undertake a challenging diversion!
