Faulhaber is an independent family-run group of companies with its headquarter in Schönaich near by Stuttgart in the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg, one of the economically strongest regions for industrial high technology in Europe.
An innovative technology for miniature electric motors was first developed at Dr. Fritz Faulhaber GmbH & Co. KG (founded in 1947 and known then as "Dr. Fritz Faulhaber Feinmechanische Werkstätten") and was decisive in shaping drive technology. This newly developed technology was the bell-type armature motor. It forms the foundation for the enormous range of drive solutions offered by Faulhaber. The most important element of this motor is its self-supporting, coreless skew-wound design developed by Dr. Fritz Faulhaber and registered for patent in 1965.
On the basis of this unique technology, the company has for almost 70 years specialised in the development, production and implementation of high-precision small and miniature drive systems and offers them in standard versions, modified designs or as customer-specific complete solutions. Their main areas of use include production automation and robotics, aerospace, optical systems as well as medicine and laboratory technology. They are regarded worldwide as a mark of high quality and reliability in complex and sophisticated fields of application.
