AGW rebuilt a steel mill gearbox. We replaced the existing through hardened and hobbed gears with carburized hardened and precision ground gears. The new gears also had lead and profile modifications. This repair not only improved the strength and durability of the gears, but also improved the overall operation of the gearbox.
Below you can see the difference this upgrade made to the overall reliability of the gearbox. The green line shows the significantly reduce vibration of the gearbox rebuilt by Atlanta Gear. This is another example of AGW examining a common gearbox failure and making the necessary upgrades and modifications to improve the reliability of our customer’s equipment, while providing the lowest possible total cost of ownership.
