Rexnord Offers Falk Forged Fabricated Gear Sets
November 27, 2013—Rexnord launches its Falk Forged Fabricated Gear Sets offering for a variety of industrial applications in the mining, cement, power generation and paper industries. Falk Forged Fabricated Gear Sets are engineered specifically for custom mill, kiln and dryer applications requiring gear sets under 24 feet (7.3 meters) in diameter.
“We’re seeing an increased need in the marketplace for these types of gear sets,” explains William Quinn, business development lead, Mill Products, Rexnord. “What elevates our offering above others is that our gear sets are forged into gear rims and pinions from medium carbon and alloy steels for exceptional metallurgical soundness, and structural integrity. The gear rims and pinions are forged from the start, unlike other manufacturers that form gear rims from flat steel plates, causing nonuniform properties, and compromising the performance of the product.”
Additional benefits customers receive from Falk Forged Fabricated Gear Sets include:
- Lower costs and shorter lead times — the combination of the gear rims and pinions being forged and no pattern requirements, means Falk Forged Fabricated Gear Sets cost customers less than other industry processes, and shipment occurs from 17 weeks after order placement, addressing emergency breakdown situations.
- Trusted quality and expertise — Rexnord brings more than a century of gear manufacturing expertise to this offering, ensuring customers receive a reliable Falk Forged Fabricated Gear Set.
Falk Forged Fabricated Gear Sets are designed utilizing the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) standards and have an industry-leading, three-year warranty.
