Our company philosophy

Work in FlowMotion

Güdel brings flow to industrial automation by delivering intelligent motion solutions. The result is a good feeling and measurable added value at the same time. Absolute reliability and maximum efficiency. We call it: Work in FlowMotion.

The prerequisites: Intelligent technologies for motion

FlowMotion is only possible when all the prerequisites are in place.
That's why three key attributes are at the heart of Güdel's technologies:


From gearboxes to gantry robots, Güdel technologies have always been a step ahead of the competition. However, we never develop innovations just for the sake of it. Instead, we're always striving to make our customers' processes simpler, more reliable and more efficient. In short: Every innovation is about bringing more flow to production and logistics.



We believe that extensions, enhancements and repairs to existing systems should always work as quickly and easily as possible. It's the only way to make sure everything keeps flowing. That's why we always strive to develop modular solutions. What that means for you: maximum flexibility at all times.


Processes cannot flow unless every last component is running smoothly. To ensure this, we invest in the highest quality. That includes everything from the choice of materials and precision manufacturing to uncompromising quality assurance and our exceptional customer service.


The values behind Güdel

For us, the concept of FlowMotion is also inextricably linked to the values that guides in our everyday work.


FlowMotion® solutions always require less energy because of their extreme efficiency and last longer thanks to their high quality. As a result, our technologies not only lower your total costs of ownership, they also help you run an environmentally sustainable business.


There's no such thing as "no can do," at least not at Güdel! And if something actually does stop working, you can count on us to get it running again quickly. After all, a company that promises to make your processes flow has to stand by its word.


Selling sophisticated products isn't enough for us. We take responsibility and aren't satisfied until our customers' processes are working perfectly. When that happens, FlowMotion becomes something you experience every day. Thanks to faster and more efficient processes. Thanks to fewer disruptions and inefficiencies. Thanks to higher performance in less time. In short: thanks to production processes that truly flow.
