From innovative idea to global markets

In the first half of the nineteen nineties, two designers, Bartolomej Janek and Tibor Fecko, invented and built a new unique high-precision reduction gear. The motivation for its development was the elimination of operational deficiencies of industrial robots. In 1997, the first production plant was built in a green field in Prešov, Slovakia. Since it was a new product, the company’s priority was to set up optimal technological processes and also to win the trust of future customers. Through intensive development and sales activities, in the course of several years, SPINEA started to succeed among the manufacturers of high-precision reduction gears. From 2000, when the serial production started, the sale volume grew systematically as a result of securing the first major contract from KUKA.

That growth attracted repeated investments, which resulted in the opening of a second production plant in Prešov in 2007. Further extensive investment, made between 2012 and 2014, brought expansion, with a new production hall and the purchase of further modern technologies, with the objective to significantly increase the annual production capacity.



 Our patent lawyer says that a patent is a world one when it employs a lot of people,  sells products around the world, no objections were raised against it in the patent procedure, and the inventor has a lot of ill-wishers. That suspiciously corresponds with the story of our invention.

Ing. Bartolomej Janek, CSc.

Unique solutions, international success


The products of the company are suitable for applications, which require high reduction-gear ratio, high kinematic precision, zero-backlash motion, high torque capacity, high rigidity, compact design in a limited installation space as well as low weight. They are widely used in an automation and industrial robotics, in the field of machine tools manufacturing, in the navigation and camera equipments, medical systems and in many other fields.


SPINEA enjoys membership as a member of international robotics associations, such as the International Federation of Robotics and EU Robotics as well as the German Engineering Federation - VDMA.  






Satisfied customers and visions

The major customers of the company include in particular the manufacturers of industrial robots, such as KUKA, ABB, Comau, and RRRobotica, manufacturers of machine tools, such as DMG, Mori, Trumpf, and Doosan Infracore, the packaging equipment manufacturer Tetrapak, and the specialist in glass grinding Swarowski. Besides the mentioned applications, the TwinSpin reduction gears are also used in industrial automation, radar and navigation equipment, camera and monitoring systems, medical equipment. Thanks to their precision and reliability, the TwinSpin reduction gears are also supplied for an atomic particle accelerator project at CERN in Switzerland. In the future, SPINEA wants to strongly support the development of its own R&D base, through which it secures the further innovation and development of new products. They will then fulfil their mission reliably and precisely in any field of operation.
