Power Transmission Engineering


The Power Transmission Engineering Association represents the interests of the largest group of suppliers to the mechanical engineering industry. This association informs its members in a way relevant to their needs about all topics relating to power transmission technology and other areas of mechanical engineering.

With a joint sales volume of almost 23 billion euros and nearly 130,000 staff, German power transmission engineering and fluid power form the largest industries in the German mechanical and plant engineering sector. This is also reflected in the industries’ top position in the world trade share at over 20 percent.

The association engages with current social questions such as mobility, sustainability, energy efficiency and power generation in the various VDMA forums and initiatives, such as those concerned with wind energy plants, electrical mobility or Blue Competence. We work closely together in working groups and committees with experts from our member companies: "With the industry - for the industry".

We represent the interests of our industry to customers, competitor organizations, business circles, the public, national and international authorities and the world of politics.
The Power Transmission Engineering Association within the VDMA represents the interests of approx. 180 power transmission technology manufacturers in Germany.
These account for over 80% of estimated German production in this field.

Our members are manufacturers of:
•    Gear and gearboxes
•    Ball and roller bearings, plain bearings, universal joint bearings
•    Mechanical drive components (brakes, drive shafts, chains, clutches, etc.)
•    Linear technology
•    Geared motors, frequency converters
•    Motion control systems

Activities in India

•    Management Meetings Power Transmission Engineering and Fluid Power (twice a year)
