Our 10,000 ton forging press provides the power necessary to achieve the dramatic reduction ratios and material flow which are essential in high quality gears. This closed-die design provides excellent strength-to-weight ratios necessary for your most critical applications. Gear blanks that we manufacture are used in a wide range of heavy duty applications including locomotive traction drives, wind turbines, speed reducers, and mining machinery. Gear blanks are available in sizes up to 48 inch diameter rough machined or hob ready. Multiple heat treatment options exist to reach the desired mechanical properties required. Typical stock allotted is 1/8" all over, however bores and other details can be machined into the part as requested.
