With a very high level of its manufacturing operations made in-house, Lock quality is not the outcome of on-site supplier audits nor of random sample incoming goods inspections, but instead quality is created within our company. This ensures that all of our products comply with the quality requirements that Lock promises to meet on your behalf.

Lock is big enough to supply you with an extensive range of products, all manufactured to consistently high standards of quality and in high volumes. At the same time though, Lock is also flexible enough to be able to listen carefully to what you have to say, and to meet your precise wishes.

The logically structured range of modular products includes a great variety of drives, couplings, gear racks, gear units and accessories. This is what enables us to deliver your vision of an optimum drive system.

With its order-related assembly operation and its great capacity, Lock is able to supply anything from single items to products for large and complex projects, and can do so reliably and rapidly.

In its market sector, Lock offers the biggest selection of all, featuring around 1000 variants of its EWA power drives. More than 500,000 power drives have already left our assembly line and have been delivered to customers.

You are always welcome to come and visit our production facilities, and to enrol for product-based and application-related training courses in our exhibition area.
