Customer: Wind Energy Manufacturer
These drives work hard. They must withstand shock loads, have reliable resolution, increase speeds (preferably by a minimum of 1/6) and be lightweight, long lived and reliable. Speed increasers are not speed reducers run backwards. In the case of increasers it’s the speed that kills the components, not the torque.
Customer: High-reduction industrial mixer manufacturer
To swing the mixer blade, this customer wanted to switch from a 50:1 cone worm gear to a 600:1 drive. Options included using double worms (poor efficiencies) or undergoing a complete redesign (very expensive). Instead, installing a Gearing Solutions 12:1 gearhead solved the problem.
Customer: U.S. government
Antenna rotor drives work hard and must withstand shock loads, have reliable resolution, incorporate high reductions and be lightweight and long lived. Gearing Solutions GHP Planetary Series 181:1 multistage gearbox provided a perfect solution for a high-torque antenna rotor for military radio armatures. The product is compact, lightweight, high density, is sealed, and with surfaces coated for use in an outdoor environment.
Customer: Chemical manufacturing plant
This customer wanted to replace an electric motor with an air motor, to eliminate the possibility of sparks. But air motors average 3 times the RPM of electric motors. Instead of a cumbersome redesign of the drive system of this winch, Gearing Solutions recommended replacing the electric motor with an air motor and a Gearing Solutions 3:1 gearhead. It fits in the same envelope and takes only minutes to install
Customer: Manufacturer of machine tools
Machine tools are usually mounted on heavy cast bases, but Gearing Solutions designed this one for lightweight portability. This gearhead, at less than 11 pounds, not only fulfilled the requirements but did so well that it was used for both axis and the rotational motion. It provides inspection and honing, in a compact design that allows for easy installation and service.
Customer: Manufacturer using hand-wheel multiplication
Gearing Solutions developed a 10:1 ratio gearhead for this customer whose personnel experienced injuries using normal hand wheel multiplication. The product features a valve position indicator
Customer: Winch drive design engineer
Winch drive designers have been intrigued with the idea of putting the gearing system inside the drum. Gearing Solutions makes this a reality with its GHP Planetary Series. An added bonus inherent in this design is the replaceable cable track. You can choose your materials and, in high-wear situations, replace the worn track quickly
Customer: Cat scan machine manufacturer
Gearing Solutions 289:1 gearbox powered the first CAT scanner platform. Stability, high reduction, compact size and quiet operation were the features that governed the engineer's decision to choose our product.
