Mining applications of our products have included installations in:

  • Drag line machines
  • Excavators and Dozers 
  • Mine rail carts
  • Other moving equipment 
While there are many other applications we will work with our customers to ensure they recieve a produce fit for duty within the needs of your projects.

Our product listing of previously produced products is summarized below: 

Mining Rollers are large scale products that go into very large earth moving machines. 
Rollers are designed to withstand heavy loads and environmental abuse. 
Bushings or bearings can come pre-installed per customer requests on finished products. 

Sheave or Pulleys are designed to pass a cable for lifting applications.
Our standard Sheave, per our line card, are listed by their Outside Dimension first.
Many customers request sheaves based on their pitch diameter or rope size which we can easily use as well.
Our Sheave wheels' groove designs are based on industry standards and we can help you to define the groove if needed. 

Gear blanks come in a variety of shapes and styles dependent on the customer request. 
Typical gear blanks provide the required geometry required with a standard allotment of stock material to be removed by the customer.
Most gear blanks may also require a forging reduction of material which we can help to target and/or exceed per your needs.  
Gear blanks also has unique material grades that significantly differ from our standard product. We do stock several grades of material to reduce lead times and cost. 

Axles and Shafts may be a relatively new offering from McKees Rocks Forgings, however axles have been produced at our facility under the Standard Forged Products name for years.
Forged in-house, many standard locomotive and rail axles can be provided in rough of finished states. 
Per customer requests "wheelsets" (an axle with installed wheels) can be purchased directly from us. This can help reduce customer lead times and installation.
