Goals for the future

Why rest on our laurels? Micromotion is young, hungry for technology and focused on the future. We want to continue this philosophy in the coming years. Our products will continue to be one step ahead of the needs of our customers: we want to increase the level of integration of our products and further reduce the dimensions.

The foundation for this has already been laid: in 2015, all production units were reorganised and sales was reorganised in early 2016 and the latest innovations in technology are now being implemented.


Quantum leaps in technology

With the new 6 series, Micromotion revolutionises the market for micro zero backlash gears and again emphatically underscores its ambition to remain the supplier of the world’s smallest zero backlash gearing.

Gear optimisation and increased product performance are just some of the steps taken, whilst innovation in gearing technology the continued miniaturisation continue to shape the way ahead.


Micromotion conquers non-European markets

From the start, the products from Micromotion have been oriented towards the needs of both domestic and international customers. With the USA and South Africa, Micromotion now also supplies the non-European market.

The technological standard is thereby continuously optimised, the first developments for space technology have already been in use for more than two years.


Growth & consolidation of the company

Micromotion continues to grow and the first series customers stabilise business, the product range is expanded, the processes are industrialised. Micromotion introduces a comprehensive quality management system. Processes and procedures are standardised, an error reporting system is implemented and the basis for complete traceability of each individual product established.


Founding of Micromotion GmbH

Micromotion is founded in 2001 at the start of the new millennium. Standards are high right from the beginning – on our work as a team and, of course, on our products. The development of the world’s smallest zero backlash micro gearbox sets the standard on which we continually reorient ourselves.

The technology is followed by numerous awards, among others from the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate and the trade journal KEM.
