Akron Gear and Engineering
Akron Gear is much more than a gear
shop. We also posses the equipment to meet your machining needs. From
1/2" diameter shafts and spindles to 50,000 pound bases, Akron Gear has
the right machines to meet the challenge.
Our exceptionally large machining
capacity gives us an edge over our competition in the fact that we can
not only cut the gears for your equipment, but we also manufacture the
blanks, and in many cases manufacture and machine the mating parts to
insure a quality fit with the final product.
Akron Gear has an
excellent track record with large part turning. Large gear blanks, wear
rings, spacer plates, rotors, fans, hubs and fabrication components are
just a fraction of the parts that Akron Gear routinely turns for our
customers. We understand that a finished product is only as good as the
parts put into it, and we take as much pride in quality parts as you do.
Akron Gear can turn
parts up to 110" in diameter and 110" tall on our vertical torrent
lathes. Shafts are also no problem with lathe capabilities up to 25" in
diameter and 100" long.
We not only turn large
parts, but also machine small parts on our CNC lathes. We can parts as
small as 1/2" diameter.
Akron Gear's milling
capabilities are unrivalled with our Juaristi 5-axis CNC Boring Mill,
capable of machining parts up to 50,000 pounds and nearly 100 cubic
inches. Crank gear trunions, wire drums, bases, housings and intricate
shaft machining are common place items on our three boring mills.
Turning and milling are
not our only areas of performance when it comes to machining your parts.
Akron Gear routinely
assist other gear shops with our keyseating capabilities of up to 3"
wide keys and 25" key strokes.
threading and slotting help to round out our machining abilities at
