Gearbox Refurbishment

The recent acquisition of an additional unit was prompted by the requirement for more space to cope with the increasing demand for this service. Our experience with the production of “one off” gears links perfectly with the expertise offered by our parent company Transpower Drives in the supply of bearings, seals etc. Many “obsolete” gearboxes are now back in service thanks to this combination.

A full inspection report is provided for approval, before work is completed. All work is carried out by staff with many years experience.

Spur Gears

Spur Gears have the teeth cut parallel to the axis of the shaft. A cross section of the tooth is identical for both size and shape along the entire length.

Spur Gearing is used over a wide range of applications from gearboxes fitted to motorcars, to large drives in heavy plant.

In addition to Steel and Cast Iron we can also offer in a variety of other materials. Where the application requires, we can also include tooth rounding or chamfering as part of the finished product.

Helical Gears

With a pair of Helical Gears the teeth mesh gradually and at no time is the full width of any one tooth completely engaged.

This gradual engagement and release of the teeth eliminates much of the shock and jar associated with straight teeth when operating under heavy loads.

In addition to Steel and Cast Iron we can also offer Helical Gears in a variety of other materials.

Bevel / Mitre

Most sets of Bevel (or Mitre) Gears are made for shafts running at right angles to each other, with the apex of the pitch cones lying at the same point. The size of the tooth diminishes as the cone apex is approached, the contour of the tooth also alters as the tooth size decreases.

Bevel gears feature in a large number of drives including automotive applications and on the drive of many machine tools.

In addition to Steel and Cast Iron we can also offer in a variety of other materials.

Worm & Wheels

Worm Gearing is another method of driving two shafts, the axis of which normally lay at right angles to each other. The usual driving member, the worm, may have either a single or multi-start thread.

In addition to Steel and Bronze we can also offer in a variety of other materials.

Stock Gears

In addition to the manufacture of gears to sample or drawing we can also offer a range of standard gears FROM STOCK. These cover Spur and sets of Bevel Gears in Nylon and Steel. All are held in solid or pilot bored condition, but can be quickly bored and keyed to specification prior to despatch, if required.

Please contact us for more details or request a full stocklist.

Timing Pulley

A Timing Drive offers a positive engagement belt drive giving synchronous, non slip running and constant belt speed, without the need for lubrication. A wide range of tooth forms are available to cover a variety of applications.

In addition to the manufacture of bespoke Timing Pulleys, we can also supply a comprehensive range of standard timing pulleys and belts from stock, through our parent company Transpower Drives.

Sprockets

Chain Drives have for many years offered an efficient, compact means of transmitting mechanical power, and still provide the best solution in high load applications. A wide range of pitch sizes are available, covering B.S. and A.S.A standards.

In addition to the manufacture of bespoke Sprockets, we can also supply a comprehensive range of standard sprockets and roller chain from stock, through our parent company Transpower Drives.

Splines

Splines transfer the rotary motion of an input to an output. Teeth can be straight sided, included angle forms (serrations) or involute form. Splines provide a more uniform circumferential transfer of torque to the shaft than a key.

We are able to supply a wide range of matching internal and external splines.In addition to our standard range of cutters to ISO and BS standards, other internal tooth forms can also be produced by EDM wiring.

General Machining

The machine tools encompassed within our gear manufacturing workshop means we can offer a range of general machining services, to include: -

Turning and Milling
EDM wiring and Spark Eroding
Grinding
Keying.

We are happy to quote on one off’s or small batch quantities
We also offer a rapid turn round bore and keyway service on customer’s own sprockets or pulleys.

 

New Gearboxes

Over the years we have established a good working relationship with most of the leading suppliers of gearboxes.

In addition to our gearbox refurbishment service, we can offer competitive prices on a whole range of new gearbox / motor gear units.

Precision Grinding

Precision Grinding was an operation that we used to sub-contract out. With the closure of the company we were using and with no local alternative we were left with a problem.

This was solved by investing in the machinery and staff of our former supplier, to enable this service to carry on, for our own benefit and other local engineering companies.

As a result we can offer a comprehensive precision surface and cylindrical grinding service, to include cutter and saw sharpening and tool regrinding

Wire and Spark Eroding

However many internal cutters we purchased, we were always being caught out by an odd spline we could not cut. This led us to invest in our own EDM wiring and Spark Eroding machines. Now in addition to internal splines,a variety of profiles can be cut quickly and efficiently in a range of materials.

Fasteners

Customer driven requests have led the company to invest in a stock range of fasteners. The range is always under review and is expanding constantly.

Stock is available at competitive prices. Please call us for a quote.

Chemical Blacking

Repeated requests from customers encouraged investment in our own chemical blacking system. While the main focus remains on processing our own work, enquiries for small batch sub contract work are welcomed.

Racks

Rack Gears have their teeth cut on a flat surface. As there is no curvature on the pitch line, teeth are cut with straight sides. Racks are usually used with a spur pinion gear to convert between linear and rotary motion. 

In addition to Steel and Cast iron we can also offer in a variety of other materials.

Keying

We offer a comprehensive keyway cutting service.
Keyways can be broached up to 25mm wide in metric or 1" wide in imperial sizes and larger widths can be wired. 
We can also slot keyways into a blind hole.

Turning and Milling

We are happy to quote against your enquiries for one off or small batch quantity requirements. 

Boring and Keying

We can offer a rapid turnaround service for the boring out and keying of our standard stock range of pilot bored gears, timing pulleys and sprockets to your specific requirements

Keying

We offer a comprehensive keyway cutting service.
Keyways can be broached up to 1” wide in metric and imperial sizes and larger widths can be wired. 
We can also slot keyways into a blind hole.

Shafts

We can produce drive shafts in a variety of materials, to include keyways and treaded ends etc.
