Design & Build of Steel Spur Gear Set for the Pulp & Paper Industry


Design & Build of Steel Spur Gear Set for the Pulp & Paper Industry

A pulp and paper client came to Dayton Gear with a spur gear set that was failing unexpectedly and prematurely, within 3 months of installation. After inspecting the existing spur gear unit, our design engineers used 3D modeling in SolidWorks to design a new part, with a different diametral pitch, as well as an adjustment function to control use and wear. In addition to design, we fully manufactured the new spur gear set, using our hobbing and CNC turning services, available for this project and many other types of jobs.

In addition to design modification, we also sourced and manufactured the gear set from a harder alloy steel, extending the service life of this component from under 3 months to over 2 years. This material change saved the customer over $100,000.  Our highly efficient manufacturing turnaround times allowed us to deliver the completed component to our Southern Ohio client in less than 5 working days.
